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
