What is Iren Syndrome?
Irlen Syndrome is a widely unknown disorder that affects about 15% of the general population and a whopping 50% of people with learning and reading problems. Patients with Irlen Syndrome struggle to properly process visual input due to an issue with their brain. Children with Irlen Syndrome often experience light sensitivity, reading issues, concentration difficulties, eye strain and fatigue, frequent migraines or headaches and a lack of depth perception.
