Problems working under bright lights at work or on a computer?
Problems with work performance when using a computer, phone or checking documents? Does working under bright lights make things worse? You may have a visual processing disorder called Irlen Syndrome.
Michelle came to the Krist Samaritan Irlen Clinic (Houston/Galveston) in crisis. She is 49 years old and was ‘written up’ at work due to missing detail in documents when checking them. Michelle knew that Irlen Syndrome was in the family as both children had screened positive, but like lots of mamas instead of putting the oxygen mask on herself first had looked after the children. Now the family’s income was in jeopardy and her anxiety was so bad that when I showed her a page of dense text her leg started to shake.
In the video Michelle describes what was happening to words and numbers when checking documents. She was amazed that not only did the Irlen, colored glasses stop those distortions but later, when we went outside she saw in 3D for the very first time! No wonder she hadn’t been able to walk in a straight line.
Here’s an email from Michelle after the session:
Thank you for allowing me to share my work struggles and if it can help adults, please use it as a tool! This is my first write up ever in over 30 years of working! The symptoms have worsened as time has progressed. You are never too old to improve your quality of life!
