Brain Injuries

Brain Injuries & Visual Problems


Whether a head injury is caused by a motor vehicle accident or a traumatic brain injury during combat or sports, or simply slipping and hitting your head on the front steps, these injuries can result in neurological changes in memory, attention, coordination, and cognitive tasks. Brain injuries can also result in changes in personality, light sensitivity, depth perception and migraines. Irlen lens have helped many individuals, including combat veterans returning from the Middle East, with their traumatic brain injuries.

  • Light sensitivity
  • Impaired depth perception
  • Difficulty changing focus
  • Difficulty reading
  • Difficulty with eyes wanting to wander
  • Headaches & Fatigue
  • Difficulty working under fluorescent lighting
  • Unexplained feelings of being overwhelmed, anxious and/or depressed

Damage to the brain makes it vulnerable to external stressors like light. Offensive wave lengths of light create extreme stress on the brain that affects many physical, cognitive and emotional areas of function. Filtering offensive wave lengths of light with the Irlen Method allows the brain to function more normally and helps it heal. Color calms the brain and reduces stress on the central nervous system.

Reported improvements with the use of Irlen Spectral Filters include:

  • speech
  • motor coordination
  • body tremors
  • headaches
  • seizure activity
  • word retrieval
  • communication ability
  • significant reduction in anxiety and irritability

Most changes occur within a short period of time.

Irlen clients with traumatic brain injuries who received Irlen Colored Lenses made steady improvements in areas where change had not previously occurred. Many Irlen clients reported improvements even years after the injury and after a variety of unsuccessful therapies.

Color protects the brain from further stress and allows healing to take place. The longer those with head injuries wear their Irlen Spectral Filters, the greater the increase in normal cognitive, behavioral and academic function.
