Meares Irlen Syndrome is a form of

visual stress which can lead to

difficulty with some visual tasks

for example reading.

This particular eye condition

was identified in 1980 by an American

psychologist and although the condition

is not yet fully understood, it is known

to affect reading ability.

Symptoms of Mears Irlen Syndrome include,

Strain working under bright lighting

Difficulty finding comfortable lighting

Headaches during reading, working at a

computer, watching TV, supermarket lighting

Poor comprehension and reading as

words can appear to be ‘jumbling’ up,

jumping off the page, and moving around

sometimes mistaken for dyslexia.

Some people who may be suspected of being dyslexic may in fact be suffering from Meares Irlen Syndrome which can be alleviated to some extent by colour correction methods.
