Irlen Syndrome Symptoms

Irlen Syndrome has a wide range of symptoms which may vary from person to person. These symptoms may be first noticed in childhood but affect people throughout their lives. These symptoms are effectively dealt with by the use of Irlen® Filters, worn as glasses or contact lenses, following a thorough assessment and colour evaluation by a trained Irlen Diagnostician.

Studies have shown that 12-15% of the population are affected by Irlen Syndrome. However, it is largely undiagnosed because:

  • it is not an obvious problem.
  • it is not identified by standard visual and medical examinations or by educational and psychological assessments.
  • sufferers think that the perceptual distortions that they experience are "normal". They assume that everyone else perceives the page and the environment as they do and also experience the same physical discomfort.

The main symptoms of Irlen Syndrome are listed below.

If you have any of the symptoms detailed in this section and believe that it may be related to Irlen Syndrome then please do contact us without obligation and we'll be happy to explore whether Irlen Syndrome may be affecting your quality of life. Ideally, you would have first completed the forms available on the check yourself out page so that we can initially assess whether you may need our assistance or not.
