My first pair of lenses were a blend of about 5 colors so they were a darker brown. At first they sort of bothered me, but no one ever said anything. I would bring it up and say, “If you noticed, I am wearing tinted lenses….” Some people would say, “Yeah, I was wondering if those were sunglasses that just didn’t fade out properly when you came in.” Because everyone needs an individual assessment, you will find/discover the colors right for YOUR brain. The right colored lenses will not distort the color of anything you are looking at and they calm your brain. They also greatly help people with headaches and migraines, and Cornell University’s FMRI department is currently doing a big research on these lenses and the changes and impact they make on the brain.
I often forget my lenses are tinted and notice it when I see my reflection in the mirror.
When I first got them, my mom kept saying, “I cannot believe HOW different you are!” People that used to annoy me don’t anymore, and perhaps, I am not as annoying either–as relationships are so much easier. ADHD is difficult. I like myself sooooo much with my lenses. I would wear them even if my lens color was bright green.August 7, 2018 at 8:31 am in reply to: Think Before You Act?

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.
Welcome to my world–ADHD! I didn’t want to have medication until I tried several options, and I am glad I waited. I am a 57 year old female, have bounced off the walls all my life, struggled with impulsivity, super speed processing functions, 100 thoughts at a time 100 mph. My husband used to ask me where I got so many ideas, and I told him, “It is a gift.” I am an educational therapist and actually have found so much help for myself while helping clients. The big game changers for me are: Wearing Irlen lenses, doing Berard AIT, a 10-day auditory integrative training, and taking Neurobiologix’s Neurotransmitter pills and their B cream which is called Neuro-Immune Stabilizer Cream. I feel like my life is under control now, I am seldom impulsive, I don’t bounce off the walls, I manage time better, although I still often think I have more time than I do, etc. Many people struggle finding the right medication which is why I wanted to try non medication options first. I hope this is helpful.
