Irlen® Syndrome
What is it?

Irlen® Syndrome is a perceptual dysfunction which affects both children and adults of all ages and abilities.


Some statistics are that:

  • 12% of the general population are affected by Irlen® Syndrome, and up to 47% of these also have disabilities such as dyslexia, autism, dyspraxia and much more.

Symptoms can include:

  • Light sensitivity 

  • Difficulty judging distance 

  • Eye strain and headaches 

  • Contrast and color sensitivity 

  • Inefficient reading

  • Distortions of print 

 It is important to remember that Irlen® Syndrome is not caused by a problem with the eyes, but by the way the brain interprets the visual information sent from the eyes. Please refer to https://irlen.com/ for more information.
