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.
