What IS Irlen Syndrome?

Irlen Syndrome (also referred to at times as Meares-Irlen Syndrome, Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome, and Visual Stress) is a perceptual processing disorder. It is not an optical problem. It is a problem with the brain’s ability to process visual information. This problem tends to run in families and is not currently identified by other standardized educational or medical tests.

Key Facts

Correcting Irlen Syndrome can result in the following improvements:

  • Better comprehension
  • Read faster and longer
  • Improved accuracy
  • Reduced strain and fatigue
  • Reduced headaches and migraines
  • Improved flow and fluency
  • Improved motivation
  • Improved academic performance
  • Better attention and comprehension
  • Better self-esteem

The Irlen Method

The Irlen Method is non-invasive technology that uses colored overlays and filters to improve the brain’s ability to process visual information. It is the only method scientifically proven to successfully correct the processing problems associated with Irlen Syndrome.
The cornerstone of the Irlen Method is its precision-tinted colored overlays and filters. We use advanced color spectrometer technology to ensure that our overlays and colored glasses meet strict standards of color balancing designed to produce the most effective color-correction tool.

  • What You Can Do

This technology can improve reading fluency, comfort, comprehension, attention, and concentration while reducing light sensitivity. This is not a method of reading instruction. It is a color-based technology that filters out offensive light waves, so the brain can accurately process visual information.
