Libby finds huge improvement with Irlen tinted glasses.

My daughter Libby who is now 15 has always had difficulty with reading text. Through various reading and support programs she has managed to maintain average marks - but it has always been a puzzle as she is a mature student who often shows above average ability. Six months ago we had her eyes tested again and as well as suggesting she could have prescription lenses we were also recommended to have her tested with tinted lenses. Consequently, she has been using her Irlen tinted glasses and has noticed a huge improvement in completing her school work. Also her recent exams results are markedly improved which Libby is delighted with. So we fully recommend Irlen as a process to follow up on if other learning processes are disappointing.

No More Headaches!

Since I got my Irlen glasses I have been wearing them non stop!

I use them not only to help me read better, but also to do every day things and for work. For work I'm outside in the sun for up to 6 hours a day, before I had Irlen glasses I would often get headaches or even migraines, but now I don't get any headaches or migraines!!

People may look at me funny for wearing blue glasses (especially when it's not sunny out), but I don't care! The way I see it I'm getting the relief so I'm wearing my glasses.

My New Glasses are Cool

I would like to say that we have noticed an improvement in Maddison's reading since she has had her (Irlen) lenses. I feel Maddison is more confident in her reading and is reading more fluently since she has been wearing them. We are very thankful that we found out about Irlen syndrome.

Maddison says, "I like them because they have pink in them and people at school say to me that they like my glasses.

'I am really stoked with my new glasses...'

Hi Mark

I am really stoked with my new glasses, thank you so much. The service was awesome, I enjoyed picking out my frames and getting my coloured lenses. Attached to this are some photos I said I'd send you of me with my Irlen lenses. Thank you to everyone at Shattky Optometrists for the help with picking and fitting my new frames. Thank you so much.

Sincerely

Testimonial for Optometric Vision Therapy

For us as parents it was important to understand that our beautiful daughter wasn't 'slow' to write and finish her work as her teachers constantly labelled her. She worked soo hard at her reading, and had finally gotten herself to a 'reading age' according to teachers, but, in my opinion she wasn't reading fluently like her brother and sister had at that age. Yes, she could read and understand each individual word, but reading was a laborious task for her, and each work was thought about, stunted and slowed. Writing was even slower.

We went away with this diagnosis and took some time to mull this over and consider whether or not to follow up with Mark's recommended treatment. Never were we pushed into following a treatment, and this was appreciated. We were naturally a little skeptical as there was a sizeable financial commitment as well as the huge time commitment; however, we wanted our daughter to have the opportunity to learn at the same rate as her peers.

At all stages of the program Mark was friendly, knowledgeable and professional, he explained every step and stage to me in a simple detail that made logical sense, he included our daughter in these conversations and empowered her by making her confident and proud of herself.

'They help me read for longer and help me concentrate for longer'

Hi my name is Tim. I am 12 years old. I found out I had Irlen Syndrome when I went to get my eyes tested. I have had trouble reading since primary school and I have been going to special reading classes for my whole school life. Since I got my glasses I went up two and a half reading years in just two months. They help me read for longer and help me concentrate for longer. The words on the page are clearer, not fuzzy and I don't skip lines or miss words like I use to.

Thank you Vision Link for finding my problem before I got older and my learning was a life time problem.

Irlen Lenses are Amazing!

When wearing the Irlens glasses while reading, I no longer get headaches, my eyes don't water or tire after a few sentences, the words don't jump off the page at me and the white on the page is no longer distracting or glary.

It is now a pleasure to read! Thank you very much Mark!

I would recommend anyone with similar symptoms as those above to have an Assessment and try these lenses out and hopefully they will be very successful and amazing for you too!

'I like to wear my glasses to work at school.'

This is from Ellice McDonald. I started wearing my Irlen glasses fully at the beginning of the school year. I am in room 6 at Dannevirke South School. I have moved up a reading level and two levels in my spelling since wearing the glasses. I find them a big help in doing my school work. My teacher is happy that I am wearing my glasses in class. I like to wear my glasses to work at school. I am nearly 9 years old. My birthday is on June the 14th.

This is from Jan, Ellice's mum. I am very pleased with the progress Ellice has made this year at school since she started wearing her glasses. So far she has achieved her term goals at school and the teacher is very happy with her work. Thank you.
