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!

Wearing Irlen Glasses for the first time
It’s great when people come back to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic (Houston/Galveston) and let you know how much the Irlen glasses have helped them! Irlen tinted lenses filter out the part of the light spectrum that is causing visual processing difficulties and light sensitivity.

Irlen Syndrome makes Handwriting and Organizing Writing difficult
Can Irlen Syndrome (visual processing disorder) make HANDWRITING AND ORGANIZING WRITING difficult? YES! The contrast between the white page and black lines (or text written by the student) can create visual stress and visual distortions such as black lines/text moving or fading into the page.

@NiaMarshallLlo1 Language processing problems, such as dyslexia, are different from Irlen Syndrome, which is a visual processing problem.

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!
