After contacting the lrlen Dyslexia Centre you will be sent a child or adult detailed survey form by mail or email. When the form has been completed and it has been established that most answers are in the often or sometimes column (Some people will have positive responses in some sections and not in others) you should make an appointment as lrlen spectral filtered lenses are likely to be of benefit. Benefits will range from improved comfort, eyestrain and headaches to improved clarity, confidence and reading capabilities and in some – a life changing experience.
An appointment at the lrlen Dyslexia Centre has two stages. These are performed consecutively in the one booking unless the child is very young, fatigues quickly or consistent answers are not forthcoming. Each individual presents with unique experiences and difficulties. Therefore the first stage of assessment, usually lasting about one hour, focuses on standardized reading and spelling tests, diagnosis and symptoms.
The second stage, also lasting approximately one hour (longer on rare occasions) is devoted to developmental stages, educational strategies, lrlen lens testing and it includes a detailed report. The tinting must be very precise and may involve the blending of several coloured lenses.
