    Ian Jordan plans a trip to Houston in November...

    The winds from across the pond carry whispers that Ian Jordan will be speaking in the Houston area this November.

    Mr Jordan works in cutting edge aspects of vision correction using specific (often extremely specific) tints in lenses to help an array of visual issues.

    Those who recognize the name may recall he was recently banned in Great Britain from calling himself an Optician.

    His ongoing litigation to restore his reputation will keep him from speaking directly to us but as I have only recently heard about this trip I wanted to get this out there sooner rather than later.

    For now let me get his Ayr Scotland home page up for all to see. When I have more time- or perhaps some of us can post OB links to his work...

    Here is the Full story, published by the BBC:


    An optician who claims to be able to treat the vision of people with autism and brain injuries using coloured filters has been struck off.
    Ian Jordan works in Ayr but has seen thousands of patients from across the UK and abroad.
    He claims he has been able to transform the lives of patients with a range of visual problems by using tinted lenses.
    But the General Optical Council has now "erased" him from its register of dispensing opticians.

    History is full of examples where someone with innovative thinking decides to specialize in an area not particularly understood by their colleagues, discovers new and wonderful applications that appear to benefit mankind, then finds that regulatory officials banded together against his discoveries and talent using the excuse ‘to protect the public’. 18th century thinking at its worst. Thank goodness that Ian Jordan can still continue his work as an innovative vision therapy consultant.

    Optician struck off over autism claims

    9th March 2018 by Gareth Jone

    An optician has been struck off for claiming that he could treat people with autism by using coloured filters.
    Ian Jordan was found to have shown disregard for his professional colleagues and had displayed inflated confidence in his own abilities by the General Optical Council.

    Jordan said he believed that many people on the autistic spectrum had some form of prosopagnosia, or face-blindness, a cognitive disorder of face perception rather than a problem with their eyes. The optician works in Ayr but has seen people from across the world.

    He said he had delivered positive treatment to around 5,500 people and said that giving people glasses with tinted lenses could deliver life-changing results.

    "The differences in people are life-changing,” Jordan told the BBC. “We see people on a daily basis with all sorts of major problems."

    Experts have said that although the lenses can be used to treat conditions such as migraines and reading difficulties, making grand claims about them brings the profession into disrepute.

    The council said removing Jordan from its register of dispensing opticians was the only sanction suitable to protect patients.

    The determination said he had shown disregard for the scope of his practice and the potential risks to patients. It also said there had been repeated and persistent departures from professional standards.

    Charlene Tait, director of autism practice and research at Scottish Autism, said research had shown that there is no cure for autism.

    “All scientific evidence and credible research compiled to date indicates there is no cure for autism," she said. "That is why we put our focus on promoting further understanding and acceptance of the condition across society and supporting autistic people enhance their quality of life and access as many as opportunities as possible.”
