Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can cause a range of symptoms in the aftermath which may have either short term or long term effects.
It is always important to have medical care to manage TBI and its consequences. One of the features of traumatic brain injury may be changes in visual perception which can lead to physical symptoms and changes in cognitive function.
Irlen spectral filters may be helpful to manage some of these changes. Some symptoms of TBI which may respond to Irlen spectral lenses may include:
- Improved sustained concentration
- Reduction in anxiety and irritability
- Improved memory and word retrieval
Irlen spectral filters are not a replacement for medical care but may provide a useful adjunct for individuals who have experienced traumatic brain injury.
