I am 58 years old and was diagnosed four years ago with combined type ADHD. Impulsivity? All my life I have scolded myself–“Why did I do that? Why did I say that? Stop talking! Think before you act!” And now, I never have to do that anymore. I wear Irlen lenses and they have changed my life. I have worn them 3.5 years and they actually have changed the way my brain processes information so it just works more efficiently. My cognitive functions just work better. I comprehend what I read. Auditory processing works now. They are magical.
