Do whole pages seem blurry? Or words when you try to read them? Perhaps you struggle changing focus from near to far or vice versa? Never seem to see a whole face at once? You may have a visual processing difficulty called IRLEN SYNDROME. This occurs independently of whether or not you need an eye Rx (prescription).
Molly is 14 years old and came to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic (Houston/Galveston) to find her specific color combination for Irlen glasses. Her particular problem was focusing on the board and then re-focusing on the worksheet she had to fill in. Testing for Rx (eye prescription) had been inconclusive as when she was able to focus on the reading chart she had 20/20 vision. Listen to mom, Amy, explain things they had tried, also Molly discussing wider Irlen issues including depth perception and inability to see a whole face in one go.
