Irlen Syndrome ®

Irlen syndrome; also called Meares-Irlen Syndrome, Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome or 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 standardised educational or medical tests. The symptoms vary widely and affect people differently.

The Irlen Method ®

The Irlen Method is non-invasive technology that uses coloured overlays and filters to improve the brain’s ability to process visual information. It is the only method scientifically proven to correct successfully the processing problems associated with Irlen Syndrome.

The cornerstone of the Irlen® Method is its precision-tinted coloured overlays and filters. Advanced colour spectrometer technology is used to ensure that overlays and coloured glasses meet strict standards of colour balancing designed to produce the most effective colour-correction tool.
