Light Sensitivity

Light Sensitivity

  • Bothered by glare, fluorescent light, LED, halogen, bright lights, sunlight and sometimes lights at night
  • Some individuals experience physical symptoms and feel tired, sleepy, dizzy, anxious, or irritable.
  • Others experience headaches, mood changes, restlessness or have difficulty staying focused, especially with bright or fluorescent lights.
  • Lights can trigger migraines in some people.

Studies suggest that 46% of those identified with reading problems, dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, or learning difficulties suffer from Irlen Syndrome and can be helped by the Irlen Method.

Sometimes the Irlen Method is the only solution needed, but more often, the Irlen Syndrome is just one layer of the individual’s problems, and the Irlen Method can be one piece of the solution puzzle. This method does not replace the need for instruction, remediation, or medical intervention.
