Thank you, Dr. Ang for helping me with my studies through the Irlen Method. I was diagnosed with Visual Processing Disorder in 2013. I was struggling with my studies in Junior College at that time when I met Dr. Ang who introduced me to Irlen Method and help me with getting it diagnosed and treated. I am fascinated at how the tinted lenses are able to help with my education. Now, I continue with my studies in the University and continue to get help from Dr. Ang for my Visual Processing Disorder. I would like to thank Dr. Ang and her team for helping me!

Before I wore the Irlen lenses, I had problem keeping up in class as the words always seemed to jump out at me and I also had headaches frequently and got tired very easily as well. I could hardly focus in class and got teased by my classmates for being slow. However, after wearing the lenses, copying information from the whiteboard or the screen is no longer a problem and I do not get tired frequently. The headaches also stopped and I can focus on an assignment or task barely needing to have a break. I even found a liking for chapter books that I could not bring myself to read before I started wearing the Irlen lenses. I even managed to get a bronze award in the Commonwealth Essay Writing Competition. I could not have done it if I still saw everything floating or jumping about. Since my hobby is to play the violin, the Irlen lenses has also helped to read the scores better and allowed me to enjoy playing the instrument. I am very grateful for having discovering about the Irlen lenses as it has helped me to feel less stressed and enabled to be a livelier person as well.

My 8-year-old son – Jarett was diagnosed with Visual Processing Disorder (VPD) / Irlen Syndrome when he was 7. He dislikes reading, struggled academically in school and was often misunderstood as an underachiever. When Jarett started using Irlen Spectral Filters, he began to love reading and his English subject has improved. Following my child, I’m also diagnosed with VPD. We are pleased that there is a simple and effective way to diagnose and provide support to those who struggle with reading and coping with their daily lives. We need to create more awareness and give hope to many others who are still struggling at school and at work. This could be the significant missing piece in the puzzle of Dyslexia.

My son, Kieran Lee was diagnosed with Dyslexia when he was in P2. Despite the intervention given by the school and the Dyslexic Association Singapore, it was still very hard for him to focus and study. He frequently complained about eye fatigue, headaches and hard to copy and read. His penmanship was illegible and confidence was at all time low. It was only after he was diagnosed and treated for Visual Processing Disorder (Irlen Syndrome}, then we found out that he was seeing the words all moving and shaky. There is a great improvement on his academic and physical well being and we are truly grateful for the lens.​

I am a television presenter with ESPN and Star Sports. “My daughter Haley has always been a child who wants to do well. A daughter who wanted to fit in, who wanted to please her parents and who wanted to score well at school. Just how much she wanted these things, even I was unaware until Doris Ang explained what Haley had endured in her young life so far. That she didn’t fold under pressure, give up after failing to meet our expectations and wilt through humiliation at school is a testament to her. That we discovered how to help her stand firm, find new ways to tackle life’s challenges and be proud of her is a testament to Doris. Haley has been medically discharged from Mandarin and can spend her time focusing on other subjects at school. With her new lenses, she can enjoy Math, English and Science and has already shown improvement which we feel will continue. As Haley sees the world in a new light we see our child in a new light and if it was possible to love her more, we already do.”
