As such, these patients are advised to minimize their exposure to UVR. Classically, this is accomplished through careful avoidance of sun exposure and artificial tanning booths.Read More
Light Sensitivity, Fluorescent Lights
Irlen Spectral Filters are able to filter out the offending wave lengths of light which create the stress, thus allowing the brain to be able to make the normal adjustments for various lighting conditions, glare, and brightness.

Since they do not make things darker, like sunglasses, they can even help with headlights at night.Read More
