Reasons why those with Irlen glasses need to have a YEARLY COLOR CHECK
Why do you need a YEARLY CHECK of your Irlen colored glasses? To make sure that you have the BEST BRAIN possible!

Tabitha is 20 years old and came to the Krist Irlen Clinic Houston/Galveston for her yearly Filter check.

Just as you would check yearly if an optical prescription has changed, you need to check your Irlen color prescription yearly. Body changes such as growth hormones, illness or being on a different medication change the chemical balance of the brain and so can change your optimum color. Tints in Irlen glasses, just like any other tints, can also change with time with exposure to the sun.

A LITTLE change in color can actually make a BIG difference to someone with Irlen Syndrome.

Hey Julie I just wanted to let you know how my son has been doing with his Irlen lenses! He has gone 2 whole weeks to school without a single headache, no nausea, and no vomiting. That is after 3 months of him with all those symptoms every day at school! He is also able to sit and complete his work in class. Just wanted to let you know what a big impact the glasses have had for him, and in turn me. Thanks so much
