How do Irlen Lenses help?

If stress is caused by the environment - being light sensitive or having to do visually intensive tasks such as computer work or reading, especially under bright lighting, the Irlen Method can help. Irlen Lenses filter the wavelengths which trigger stress, headaches or migraines. 

 

Recently (2016) researchers in Boston reported reduced migraine symptoms through colour which reduced light sensitivity.
