FAQs

Q: Can I use any color overlay I buy in stores or on the internet? 

A: Colored tinted lenses provided by others are NOT the same as Irlen Spectral Filters provided by the Irlen Method.  Only certified Irlen Diagnosticians are trained to determine the specific frequencies to optimize performance from an almost limitless selection of filters. 

  

Q: What is the difference between an Irlen Screener and Irlen Diagnostician?

Irlen Diagnosticians are certified to administer both testing sessions and determine whether an individual will benefit from further evaluation for Irlen Spectral Filters.
