your appointment, please check and make sure that you have completed
all of the following:
recent visual examination within a year. Vision problems need to
be corrected as prescribed by your optometrist or ophthalmologist.
You must come in wearing your correction.
you have received a new prescription for your vision recently, the
new corrective lenses should be worn for about two weeks prior to
your appointment with our Clinic to allow you time to adjust to
them. We cannot test anyone wearing tinted or photogray lenses.
you will be providing lenses for us to send off and put the Irlen®
spectral filters on, we must have our Eye Doctor
Letter filled out and signed by the eye professional who has
filled your prescription.
Irlen® Institute will not tint plano (nonprescription) lenses – either
cut or uncut – for spectral filtering. If no prescription is needed we will
make these lenses for you.
you wear Progressive Multi-Focal or prism lenses, these must be
made by your local eye specialist as the Irlen® Institute does not
make multifocal lenses. Progressive Multi-Focal lenses should be
made in Varilux II if they are progressive bifocals (no line) or
CR39 Plastic. They cannot be made out of polycarbonate. Bring these
types framed to your testing session. The lenses you provide should
be made out of CR39 optical plastic. They must not have any coating
on them such as scratch or UV.
you have corrective lenses, you must bring a written copy of your
prescription, including the Pupillary Distance, with you.
you are bringing glasses for us to apply spectral filters, we discourage the use of
rimless frames for Irlen® Spectral Filters. If you bring us a pair of glasses
that have a rimless frame we will have to ask you to take the lenses
out yourself or take them to your eye care professional to take
them out. We will not take them out for you and the Irlen® Institute
does not accept lenses in a rimless frame.
you do not need a vision prescription and would like to bring in
a pair of frames to send off with you order you may do so. Please
keep in mind that we will only send frames that have the rim all
the way around. They must also be a frame that you would normally
put a vision prescription in.
make sure that you bring your Irlen® SCREENING to the appointment.
You may also have it faxed to us at (713) 771-3112 for your convenience.
We need this screening as a basis to do the testing for the Irlen® Spectral Lenses.
make sure that on the day of your visit that you take any prescription
medications that you would normally take. This includes children
that are on any ADHD medications.
accept checks, cash, American Express, MasterCard and Visa. We cannot
accept checks for rush orders from out of town clients. These must
be charged or paid in cash.
there is any way we can be of further assistance to you, please
let us know. We shall look forward to meeting you.
