Irlen® Syndrome

Causes eye problems for many people because it alters the way they see things. The problem is one of visual perception and the eyes themselves

are not the main source of the problem. Irlen® syndrome results from the

way in which the brain interprets visual information that is sent through

the eyes. Having Irlen Syndrome prevents many people from reading   effectively and efficiently. Individuals with Irlen® Syndrome perceive

reading material and/or their environment differently. They must

constantly make adaptations or compensate for the problem and often individuals are unaware of the extra energy and effort they are putting

into reading and perception.
