Irlen Syndrome is at its core sensitivity to LIGHT, exposure to bright lighting (like at school, in an office, outside or from a computer) can result in HEADACHES, DIZZINESS, NAUSEA, VOMITING, PAINFUL EYES, BECOMING SLEEPY.
Jake is 8 years old and came to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic (Houston/Galveston) first for an Irlen Screening to find a reading overlay (colored, plastic sheet) which stopped his EYES HURTING and PAIN ON TOP OF HIS HEAD when reading.
Then Jake came back for Irlen glasses to stop more of his physical symptoms - he often gets HEADACHES, usually FEELS SICK and often VOMITS, consequently he misses a lot of school. The testing at the Clinic is done gradually to find the precise combination of colors that alleviate physical symptoms. Jake commented that the final combination under fluorescent lights, “does not hurt my eyes” “stops my head hurting.”
It was wonderful to get an email from Jake’s mom last week confirming the Irlen glasses effectiveness:
“Hey Julie I just wanted to let you know how good Jake has been doing with his Irlen lenses! He has gone 2 whole weeks to school without a single headache, no nausea, and no vomiting. That is after 3 months of him with all those symptoms every day at school! He is also able to sit and complete his work in class. Just wanted to let you know what a big impact the glasses have had for him, and in turn me. Thanks so much”
