Irlen syndrome is treated at Irlen clinics with individual precision tinted Irlen Filters worn as glasses or contact lenses. More details of testing, treatment and solutions are broken down below:
Testing & treatment
Screening to indicate whether a person has the syndrome and whether colour will help.
Diagnostic assessment to discover the full extent of the symptoms.
Colour evaluation to identify the optimum colour or combination for each individual.
Provision of appropriate Irlen Filters to wear as glasses or contact lenses.
Aftercare: initial check up at six months and afterwards at yearly intervals to monitor the effects of the filters and to ensure that the optimum colours are worn.
Ongoing advice and support e.g. exam concessions, health and safety at work.
Precise Irlen tint
Irlen tints and Irlen treatment is only available from Irlen clinics or from accredited Irlen practitioners.
The colours must be precise for each individual; what works for one person may not work for another.
The colour of the filters does not match the colour of overlay(s) chosen during the screening.
Only Irlen Filters will treat Irlen Syndrome: colours that may look similar will not work.
Inappropriate colours will not treat the symptoms and may cause other problems.
