Closed petition Provide free glasses on the NHS, for children with Irlens Syndrome.
Provide free glasses on the NHS, for children with Irlens Syndrome. This is not actually an optical problem but a problem with the way the brain processes visual information.
They aren't available on the NHS as the prescription is a colour, not curved glass, leaving the parent to pay for a test to find the correct shade and depth of colour, the frame and the lenses, costing about £250+ plus regular assessments To read, write and reach their potential these children NEED their glasses but are penalised due to their prescription. Glasses for Irlens Syndrome are vital to their education and should be provided on the NHS just like any other children's glasses.
