12 year old girl describes her visual processing difficulties in a typed list
We had a 12 year old girl come to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic, Houston/Galveston for Irlen colored glasses. She had previously been diagnosed by us with Irlen Syndrome, which is a visual processing difficulty (so not to do with the eyes but the brain). She had typed out a list of things that she had problems with including “When in a certain light I get a headache, even if I’m not reading”; “Reading sentences that are close together make me want to cross my eyes and scream!”

Irlen Syndrome makes tracking lines or numbers difficult
The Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic, Houston/Galveston had a visitor last week. Imagine you are 9 years old and have already decided ‘READING IS MY ENEMY!’ Young children losing heart because no matter how hard they try to read they still lose their place, skip words and lines - even when wearing the correct reading prescription. Irlen Syndrome is a visual processing disorder, nothing to do with the function of the eyes, but how the brain processes light.

I wanted to give you some GREAT news! My son’s Irlen glasses came in the day before STAAR testing. He was able to use them for the test and we just found out that he passed his Reading! This is the first time since 4th grade that he has passed it on the first try! We are so excited at the difference these glasses are making already!
