Irlen Syndrome (also called- Scotopic Sensitivity,Visual stress, Meares-Irlen) is a perceptual dysfunction, which affects the way in which the brain interprets the visual information being sent from the eyes. It is a difficulty with processing not a vision problem.
We can assess for Irlen Syndrome and supply aids such as Irlen overlays, coloured paper, Irlen tinted lens.
A typical diagnosis of Irlen from Irlen East will include a written report describing how Irlen Syndrome is affecting the individual, also how their difficulties can be alleviated
Opticians and organisations other than Irlen Clinics who claim to treat Meares-Irlen Syndrome have no connection with Helen Irlen nor the Irlen Institute.
