Understanding The Irlen Method: A Revolutionary Approach To Visual Processing

Overcoming Visual Distortions: How Irlen Spectral Filters Bring Clarity and Comfort

The Irlen Method

  What can happen when people read

The inability to cope with black text on a white background causes letters, numbers and words to move, wave, wobble, jump, shake, vibrate, shrink, disappear or blur. The background can become brighter or dimmer; flash, flicker or sparkle; colours can also appear. Some examples of how visually stressing it can be for a person suffering from Irlen Syndrome:

  Solution The Irlen method identifies those individuals with perceptual problems and eliminates this problem using colored overlays and Irlen Spectral Filters worn as spectacles. The coloured overlay filters out offensive light waves, so the brain can accurately process visual information. It does this without reducing clarity or brightness and can be worn indoors, outdoors and even at night. Treating Visual Stress can improve reading fluency, comfort, comprehension, attention, and concentration while reducing light sensitivity. The Irlen Method has helped hundreds of thousands of children and adults throughout the world and is backed by professional and scientific advisory boards of leading experts in the fields of medicine, optometry, ophthalmology, neuroscience, research, education, autism and dyslexia.   At Eyeris, we have two Optometrists that have been certified to screen for Irlen Syndrome & Visual Stress and have been helping individuals since 2013. Here is one of the testimonials from the patient’s mother that we would love to share with you:   Patient’s Testimonial FOR FAIZA: Hello from the US! Just wanted to share with you that Lxxx went to the Irlen clinic in LA and Mrs. Irlen did his assessment. She said Lxxx has one of the most severe cases she’s seen and it’s a miracle he’s doing as well at school as he is. Lxxx got the glasses and LOVES THEM! He said he is seeing a whole new world! We never would have known of Irlen if not for you. Thank you SO MUCH for giving Lxxx this amazing gift!  

If you think you or anyone you know may be struggling with Visual Stress or Irlen Syndrome, do visit Eyeris for a FREE assessment. This would include a comprehensive eye examination to rule out any visual problems and a screening for Irlen.
