I saw an article yesterday on Irlen's Syndrome. It is a very broad topic and can be the cause of a lot of other diseases. Migraines and headaches were also included. The syndrome involves the way ultraviolet light is filtered by our eyes. It is treated by using different color overlays, glasses, or contacts to alter the way the light passes through our eyes. It is very different from person to person. There are certified Irlen specialist who conduct assessments to see what colors are best for each person.

I thought it was interesting how many areas of life it can affect. Depth perception, photophobia, reading, writing, math skills, head pain. I'm going to keep reading up on it. Wouldn't it be nice if simply adding a certain tint to glasses or sunglasses could aleviate some of the migraines? Cool

Itried rose colored glasses...but no difference. As much photophobia as I have Ithink there is something to it. I might search where a specialist is.
