Recently I tested a 12 year old girl for Irlen's syndrome. She reported big improvements in blurriness, movement, spacing, comfort and more, and went away with overlays.
Her Dad went online and found some negative comments like Angela's. He's now saying it is all smoke and mirrors. Meantime the girl constantly uses the overlays, resulting in faster reading and fewer errors.
She's pleading to be allowed to get Irlen lenses, despite the fact that she won't use her optometrist-prescribed lenses (I'm not sure whether it is because she gets a hard time about wearing glasses, or if she doesn't think they make enough difference).
What 12 year old ever WANTS glasses? Only one who is convinced that the result is worth it.
