JS, a college student, has Cerebral Palsy and was extremely limited in her ability to process written materials. She came because she could no longer "get by" with listening to recordings of classes.
It was amazing that she had made it so far in her educational career, as she could only read with the side of her head down almost to the table.
With the correct combination of five color overlays, she was able to read with far more ease. She reported great joy in the relief it provided in her college studies.
Had to read materials many times
BG was in a very rigorous advanced educational program. She suspected she had undiagnosed Aspergers, a form of autism, as she couldn't see three dimensions and had difficulty looking people in the face.
Her sensitivity to light was so extreme that she couldn't stand being in the office unless the blinds were closed and the lights off.
She reported having to read materials 10-15 times to understand them, which was a huge burden, since she had a great number of books to cover. The screening took much longer than normal, but finally there was a combination of four colors that let her see in 3-D!
No longer felt "stupid"
FG is a man in his 30's who never succeeded in school. He couldn't read anything beyond signs, and did his auto body work by "feel" and intuition.
The proper combination of color overlays allowed him to read considerably more material than ever before.
Daily migraines from the computer
BR is a man in his 50's whose job required constant computer use. He had migraine headaches every day. He had gone to many doctors and tried many medications, but nothing made a difference for more than a brief time.
When he used his combination of color overlays on his computer screen, he reported that he was headache-free.
Words stopped vibrating and his head stopped hurting
MO, a brilliant and enthusiastic 10 year old, had many visual distortions and extreme sensitivity to fluorescent light that made his head hurt.
When he got to the right combination of color overlays for him he shouted, "everything stopped moving!". His head also stopped hurting. Both he and his mother were amazed and delighted, as they had tried many things to solve his problems.
Other recommendations included to replace the fluorescent lights over his desk and have him wear a visor with a dark colored underside to school to shield him as much as possible from the fluorescent lights there.
MN, a lovely 30-something teacher had been having continuous migraines, with the latest one lasting three weeks, and still going on the time she came for an Irlen screening. The migraines were so bad that she had gone to the hospital the day before she came for IV medication, but it didn't help.
A combination of two color overlays made her head feel more relaxed immediately.
