Suffer from headaches? Migraines? Not able to pinpoint a physical problem? Drugs don’t really touch the pain? If light sensitivity is a trigger then the Irlen method could help calm your visual cortex and improve your life.
Joshua is 25 years old and came to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic (Houston/Galveston) stating that, although he has consulted with doctors and a neurologist and tried everything “in the book” to help, his migraines and light sensitivity are so intense that he is not able to “do school, read, focus or lead a full life.” He is so light sensitive he wears sunglasses both outside and inside as fluorescent lights can be particularly intense.
Joshua had been diagnosed with Irlen Syndrome as a child but had never progressed from colored reading overlays (used over text to make reading easier) to wearing the Irlen glasses that use an individualized color to completely block the part of the light spectrum that is bothering a particular brain.
I got this email this week from Joshua explaining improvements that he was experiencing:
Good morning Mrs. Yaxley
I have had my colored lenses for a couple weeks now and am extremely satisfied. For 2 years I have had migraine headaches every day at a level of 9-10 (10 being debilitating or in the hospital). Now the everyday headaches have reduced to about 5-6 which is quite significant. I am now able to read easier, be out in the sun, and even night driving has improved greatly.
Thank you very much,
