Irlen Syndrome, also referred to as Meares-Irlen Syndrome, Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome and Visual Stress, is a visual perception processing disorder. It is not an optical problem. It is a problem with the brain’s ability to process visual information.

This problem tends to run in families and is not able to be identified with optical assessments, standardised educational assessments or medical tests.
