    When you or a family member has suffered a concussion or from a related traumatic brain issue contact your physician first.

Irlen Spectral Filters can alleviate issues with reading, headaches, depth perception, light sensitivity and sports performance. Irlen Spectral Filters have helped to improve the lives for many of our clients with greatly enhanced ability when dealing with light and vision.

    About Traumatic Brain Issues

    Traumatic brain injuries including concussions occur when the skull suffers an impact or blow. Symptoms can vary from mild to severe and can transform the way an individual behaves, thinks and reacts.




    Inability to balance

    Lack of coordination




    Slurred Speech

    Visual blackouts



    Inability to concentrate

    Decreased memory

    Receptive aphasia (not understanding spoken words)

    Expressive aphasia (not being able to speak clearly)

    Blurred or double vision

    Light sensitivity

    Ringing in the ears





    Unfortunately traumatic brain issues can go undiagnosed as the effects may first appear to be mild. This can be very dangerous, especially for children as symptoms tend to worsen as the brain continues to grow and develop. It’s imperative you have your child diagnosed by a physician when you suspect something more than just a minor blow to the head.

    For treating symptoms related to light and visual disorders, including traumatic brain issues, contact Irlen Alberta for diagnostic tests to begin remedy for concussions and traumatic brain disorders.
