Andrea returned to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic (Houston/Galveston) to explain how her Irlen Filters had helped her with LIGHT SENSITIVITY.
The key feature of Irlen Syndrome is light sensitivity, the individualized filters (colored glasses) work by blocking the part of the light spectrum that is bothering the brain.
In the VIDEO Andrea explains how light sensitivity used to affect: her SHOPPING HABITS, ability to go to MOVIES during the day and READING (contrast between the white light reflected off the page and black print caused distortions). She also explains ‘after images’ and ‘pinwheels’ of light that she used to see in the environment. It is no wonder that Andrea used to need daily HEADACHE MEDICATION!
