Abstract

This project sets out to evaluate the effectiveness of the Irlen Photopic Transmittance Lenses (tinted lenses) as a therapy for reading disability. Specifically, a case-study methodology was applied to sixteen subjects who had been prescribed tinted lenses. As well , experimental simulations were devised to examine the performance of these subjects in a variety of reading and writing contexts.
