Boy experiences a whole new world with Irlen Spectral Filters



It is really amazing how Irlen Filters can change the whole life experience of a client! The color, worn as tinted glasses, normalizes the brain; and it can be a very subtle color depending on which part of the light spectrum is causing visual overload. In December, Oscar, a boy with autism, was tested for Irlen Spectral Filters. During the process, the mom became more and more aware of how the tints were changing his behavior and how he had been misperceiving the world.

When Mrs. Enciso and her son, Oscar, first arrived, he leant against her as they walked down the corridor as he had difficulty with depth perception and needed to feel where she was. With his tints, he was able to walk confidently in front of his mom. When asked, he was able to walk up and down the stairs in his tints. His mother said that at home he would have to crawl up and down as he needed to feel the stairs to know where they were.

With his Irlen Spectral Filters, the words stopped moving when reading. He could open his eyes comfortably, even under bright fluorescent lights. Outside, his eyes were relaxed in the sun; and with the tints on, he could reach out and touch a small leaf without hesitation. Without them, he fumbled for it as he couldn’t judge where it was. His mother said that she had never realized before that her son never had his eyes fully open; she only saw him do this with his Irlen Spectral Filters. Mrs. Enciso was so excited about all these changes. "It’s so amazing how much change you see, it gives me goosebumps!!!”
