Irlen Syndrome often results in SENSITIVITY to particular colors
Are you SENSITIVE TO COLOR? Do you feel CALM looking at a particular one? Do you HATE some bright, FLUORSECENT colors? Do some colors HURT your eyes? Do you argue about particular SHADES of color as to what they are? Do some PASTEL colors look washed out/white? If your answer is ‘YES’ to any of these questions you may have IRLEN SYNDROME. This is a visual processing difficulty, so nothing to do with whether you need prescription glasses or not.
