Instructions Before Irlen Diagnostic Appointment


Irlen spectral tinting is the tinting of eye glasses or contact lenses. In this process you

have a number of options:

  • Option 1: If you are bringing glasses in to Dr, Cibelli for Irlen spectral tinting then please download the 2 pages below (Lens Disclaimer and optical prescription with pupillary distance) and bring them to your eye glass professional and have him or her complete them before you are seen by Dr. Cibelli. The lenses MUST be tintable… CR39 works… polycarbonate doesn’t. You may bring in new lenses and frames and the completed prescription with pupillary distance and the Lens Disclaimer from below and Dr. Cibelli will determine the correct tints and send them to the Irlen Institute for tinting.
  • Option 2: Or you may bring in just frames with plain lenses in them and your written prescription with pupillary distance. The Irlen Institute optometrist will make your lenses based on your optometrist’s prescription and tint them.
  • Option 3: Dr. Cibelli also has frames. Some people prefer to have the Irlen Institute make their glasses completely from their prescriptions.
  • Option 4: If your optometrist has told you in the last 6 months that you do not need a prescription, then Dr. Cibelli and the Irlen Institute can tint plain lenses for you, either with frames that you bring in or frames from Dr. Cibelli.

Irlen screenings are $75 and include your overlays. 

Irlen diagnostics are $350 and include your lens colors and a short report. 

Irlen lenses in your frames usually run about $245  

High density lenses for prescriptions that are in excess of 2.5 diopters are an additional $120. 

The fee to adjust your lenses is $100.

The annual recheck is $150.

Please contact Dr. Cibelli if you have any questions.
