Let me introduce myself!
I’m Sam –
The Eye Lady.
And I’m here to help! When people begin to explain their symptoms, they often start with “I’m not crazy but …”. They’ve spent years trying to tell themselves that the words on the page aren’t really moving. It’s printed text on a page – it can’t move. Can it?
Well if you’ve got Irlen Syndrome, it really can. And how do I know? Because I have Irlen Syndrome too!

Understanding and compassionate
Simple, guided process
Experienced and qualified
"We are grateful that a tutor suggested getting our son tested for Irlen's after many years of him being in reading recovery groups at school and still struggling.
We have now had both our children tested for Irlen's with Samantha. Samantha has been great to deal with and makes the testing process easy and relaxed.
Since wearing the correct coloured glasses, our children's reading and comprehension improved dramatically. After wearing them for three years, our son no longer needs the coloured lens and can confidently read black writing on white backgrounds with no Irlen's symptoms.
I highly recommend screening for Irlen's because it can make such a big difference in the ability to read and learn."
"I have been bringing my daughter to Sam for years now. My daughter used to be nervous about her Irlen assessment appointments until we started going to her. These appointments are often long and challenging, but of course well worth the outcome. My daughter told me "Sam didn't make me feel stressed out because she gave me breaks and understood it wasn't easy for me". I also noticed how supportive and kind Sam has been during all of the assessments she had done with my daughter. My daughter also said "because Sam wears Irlen glasses herself I felt like she understood me and I felt comfortable with her". I am grateful to Sam for supporting my daughter and making her feel confident. Sam is highly knowledgeable and is always happy to answer my questions. We feel very fortunate to have Sam here in Northland. Thank you Sam!"
