These testimonials are actually just brief accounts from different visual dyslexics who I interviewed as I was gathering data on the See Right Dyslexia Glasses or from feedback received in e-mails from customers who purchased the glasses over the Web. As every described problem has been removed by the glasses, these examples are just ones that come to mind.
I can't leave out the first dyslexic that saw the filters. He couldn't read white letters on green backgrounds and had no depth perception at all. Through the filters he had normal depth perception for the first time in his life and when we took a ride he could also read the freeway signs. He had been to Dr. Helen Irlen's clinic in Long Beach, CA, and felt the tinted lenses he got there were of no value to him.
I can't leave out Chris, the 20-year-old special education student who had never read a word and didn't know the alphabet. He could only match 13 letters without the glasses. He could match all 26 letters with the glasses and was reading letters off flash cards in three days.
There was a slightly dyslexic college student that had been told all she needed to stop misreading words was to slow down. That method worked through high school but in college she found the timed tests forced her to go faster than she could read accurately and her grades were suffering. With the glasses her test scores improved immediately.
There was the schizophrenic dyslexic that was losing money at the horse track from misreading the fact sheet. While he was losing less money at the track with the glasses, he was most impressed with the fact that the glasses relaxed him and he felt more in control of his schizophrenia.
There was the dyslexic environmental technician that wanted to get out of being a lead paint abatement inspector and wanted to go back to school. His reading speed was so slow he felt trapped. He was amazed at the huge improvement in his reading speed with the glasses. While he couldn't describe a visual problem that made reading difficult before he tried the glasses, afterward we discussed what his problem was. Without the glasses he only saw one word at a time in focus and had to concentrate and wait for the next word to get focused before he could read it. With the glasses all the words were in focus all the time.
There was the dyslexic woman that couldn't see anything that was small and horizonal. She would have to wave her arm up and down in front of herself to find the clothes line outside. When reading she was missing parts of words in a horizonal manner. Both problems were removed with the glasses. We were outside when she tried the glasses and it struck me funny when she said she could see the clothes line for the first time.
There was a 10-year-old boy whose mother had become very informed about dyslexia because of his problem and poor grades in school. He was very happy to be doing well in school after getting the glasses. He had a 6-year-old brother who brought home a note about poor reading skills. He tried his brother's glasses and they were effective for him also.
One of my recent customers is employed as a teacher in a state prison. She was impressed enough to seek permission to have the dyslexic prisoners try the glasses. We are hopeful that something might come of that.
