Message to children who aren't confident wearing their Irlen colored glasses
This is IRLEN AWARENESS WEEK and here is an inspiring message from 19 year old Tabitha who recently returned to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic (Houston/Galveston) with her mom. She was proudly wearing her Irlen, colored glasses which have a precise individualized tint to help her with: distortions when reading, depth perception issues and light sensitivity.

Irlen Syndrome can make it challenging to read sheet music
Can Irlen Syndrome (visual processing difficulty) affect how SHEET MUSIC is perceived? Well, YES, it is not surprising that people who are sensitive to black and white contrast have a hard time perceiving what is on the page.

Irlen colored glasses help a boy with LAZY EYE
A 15 year old boy, one of my regular tutees, came to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic, Houston/Galveston, for Irlen glasses. Usually he just looks through ‘slits’ as he is so light sensitive. He seems scared to open them fully. Filters helped him open his eyes. As he has 2 lazy eyes you don’t always see them, especially the left one. The Irlen colors helped both eyes to ‘pop up’ though extra color was needed to encourage the left one!

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!
