Amazing changes can happen when wearing Irlen lenses for those people who find their environment difficult to judge, for example - where things are, how far away something is, floors might be bumpy or have dips when they’re actually flat, or what they see in the distance is like a photo that’s 2D, because there’s no depth!
Recently a client who had very little 3D vision found when he had his Irlen lenses on, the stairs were no longer flat surfaces rising – he could now actually see the indents of the steps!
I’ve had instances when the client looked at cars and the paint rose up off the cars – making it very difficult learning to drive. With her Irlen lenses the paint stayed in place on the cars.
Another instance…a client had his Irlen filters on and said, “Dad, you don’t have holes in your tummy!” In fact this person saw holes in many places in the environment when he wasn’t wearing his Irlen filters.
2D-3D vision – before and after Irlen filters can also make a difference to your ability in the workplace or career. Spot the pre and post Irlen lenses paintings!!!
In Sarah Platt’s paintings above, the one on the right was painted once she had her Irlen lenses.
A young novelist was explaining today that she hadn’t realised she wrote two different background scenarios in her novel. In the earlier part of the script –before having Irlen lenses her descriptive language of the scenery often showed up with sparkling environments and after receiving her glasses this was no longer mentioned making the editor question- why is this left out now? Also, with the novelist’s vision changing from 2D to 3D there was now different use of language to describe scenes.
Some people have trouble stepping off a curb into the road, as they can’t see that the road is at a lower level than the curb.
Others trip up constantly because there are dips in what should be flat floors or paths or that the floors and paths come out at them to be closer than they actually are. This is also why this type of symptom for a person makes catching balls in sports very difficult.
A client bought a pair of Ray Bans and couldn’t believe how good they were! They made everything 3D.
She kept waving her hand in front of her face and moving it backwards and forwards. She couldn’t believe what the beach and people on it looked like. Even the food in front of her, and her husband’s face! Not only this, but when she put them on, she felt her whole body relax and breath deeper and more slowly.
She raved about them and made everyone else try them on to see how incredible the world looked through them. Everyone should have a pair of these!
However she was surprised to find that no one else thought her new sunglasses where remarkable.
Turns out of course, when she finally got her Irlen lenses a short time after this, that the Ray Bans were a very similar colour to her Irlen tint and the Irlen tint not only changed her world from 2D – 3D…but also corrected her other Irlen symptoms.
Irlen – Where The Science of Colour Transforms Lives…
Gives hope, as the words will stay in place.
Learning will be so much easier and the bright/fluorescent lighting will be filtered so you’ll feel calm to cope with your job or to learn new sport skills and learn at school.
