19 year old client has many health problems. Has a headache and feels sick and dizzy all of the time, reading makes it worse. Words look blurry and move. When she looks at objects in the environment they become blurry. She is very light sensitive and has problems tracking objects.
Initial screening found different colored overlays were needed for dim light, fluorescent light and the computer screen. She could now read but needed a magnifier for small text. When asked how she felt about the Screening she said she was relieved that something could help her.
She went ahead with a Filter Diagnostic to find the best color combination (worn as glasses) to alleviate her symptoms. Her tints removed the fuzziness around objects and helped with eye tracking. She said ‘Can’t believe the difference it makes! I can track text better and don’t feel like I’m going cross-eyed’. She now no longer needed the magnifier. As can be the case with some clients she needed a different color combination to combat the bright, Texas sunshine outdoors and the addition of a mirror coating was part of her solution. Whilst Irlen glasses cannot remove particular health issues they can combat some of the symptoms they cause and make a vast difference to the quality of a person’s life!
