Client with low vision and light sensitivity came from out of town. Not only were his four wishes granted with a particular Irlen color worn as glasses, but he managed to squeeze in a visit to Space Center Houston before his 4 hour bus journey home.
The four wishes that were granted with filters were:
Be able to see clearly (instead of everything looking blurry)
Be able to step out in the sun without his head swirling and getting a headache
Stop having watery eyes in the sun
Be able to go from dark to bright (indoors to outdoors or vice versa) without experiencing “white out”
Instead of seeing everything as blurry this client can now see his wife once again! He commented during the diagnostic that he could now see details such as my eyes and tell I was blinking, he could make out nails on the wall behind me, and also the letters on the Irlen Reading Chart.
Inside the reception area the glare on the floor and light from the large windows did not bother him, instead of squinting his eyes were open.
When going outside he could see things he could not see when he first arrived… cars on the road, post office behind the road, tiles on the floor, trees and plants.
Previously this client with low vision had a dilemma, he could not see much in low light but bright lights bothered him! Now, with his Irlen tints, he can put on the fluorescent lights in his home, go out on a sunny day and look at his phone without headaches or blurriness.
