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.
Tabitha (19 years old) was excited to tell me about a myriad of improvements. Depth perception: “Well, I stopped going up on curbs whenever I turned right!”; Reading: “Easier all the distortions (such as text shaking) went”; Light sensitivity: “Before - outside it felt like the light was in my face with darkness all around, like an interrogation room! With the glasses going outside just feels a little lighter – not abrupt. Without the glasses when driving at night the lights used to glare and were blinding, I could only see one big light – with the Irlen glasses I could make out headlights and tail lights”
I asked Tabitha what it was like when she FIRST put on her Irlen glasses and here’s a VIDEO showing her answer. So, if you are wondering whether to go from Irlen overlays to Irlen glasses listen to what she says…… which is summed up in her final comment “I can now see changes in the world as it goes around me instead of it just passing me by!”
