  1. Colored overlays help my adult literacy students

    Posted by Joy Sanders on 26th Jan 2020

    Over a period of 2 years I have worked with several students who find using the Irlen overlays to be a help in their reading. Thanks for having these products available.

  2. Quality Overlays

    Posted by Deb Alford on 10th Nov 2019

    I ordered two overlays to use with a student. The quality of these materials is great. I have used overlays in the past and they were very thin. I will order these again and others as well.

  3. Immediate Improvement

    Posted by Jo on 16th Sep 2019

    Hi, This product should have 10 stars. I write and a few weeks ago my eyes started burning as if they were sunburnt. I couldn't write. I was also having trouble seeing the words on the screen. An amazing difference.

  5. Better reading for my granddaughter

    Good quality and they WORK!

  6. Irlen Colored Overlays Ease Reading Woes

    Posted by Scottie on 23rd Mar 2018

    The colored overlays are sized to cover a sheet of 8 1/2" X 11" paper, yet can be trimmed to fit other sized items. The matte surface reduces glare and eye-strain allowing me to read three times as long and with a higher level of comprehension as compared to plain white paper. For my reading needs, I prefer peach on glossy paper with images, while the turquoise appears to be a better fit on plain white paper. The overlays help to box the paragraphs making it possible for me to read and make it to the next line without losing my place on the page. The ability for me to spend more time reading at one sitting has increased my productivity as a student as well as in my career.

  7. Great Quality - Life Saver

    Posted by Faith Dukes on 14th Mar 2018

    Due to my adhd, I've struggled with constant eye strains, headaches, among many other problems. I received my green overlay in excellent timing, and it was packaged great. I've been using it for a month now, and I honestly can't believe I didn't find these sooner. I can now read without wearing sunglasses and long periods of reading don't bother me anymore. Needless to say, I had to go back and get the purple, and rose (to try out) since I find that purple works best for me when on a computer screen. Irlen Overlays, are a life saver.

  8. Life saving

  10. Finally - an answer

    Posted by KATHY K on 26th Jan 2018

    My granddaughter is in the 3rd grade and has been struggling with her reading since 1st grade. We have worked with her, hired tutors along with her tutoring in school and nothing. Eye doctor said her eyes were very healthy and perfect. Decided to try the overlays to see if they would help. When I went online to order them, I saw the book "Reading by the Colors" and thought I'd get it maybe as a guide to what color she needed to use. When I started reading it, I was like OMG, this is so her. Took her in for screening and her eyes were jumping up two lines when she would try to read. Started using the overlay and her teachers said they noticed an immediate difference. She's reading faster and more confident. Still has some catching up to do, but so pleased to finally find something that helps her.
