Do you suffer from headaches, eye strain, dry eyes, or neck pain throughout the day? Eye misalignment may be the root of these problems. When your eyes do not line up with one another, your visual system becomes stressed trying to focus and create clear images. Neurolens™ glasses may be the solution for you.
Understanding Eye Misalignment
Our eyes collect visual information independently. The images captured by each eye are then consolidated in the brain to form a single image. When the eyes are perfectly aligned, the consolidation produces images that are clear and free of distortion.
Eye misalignment is one of the defining features of binocular vision dysfunction. It occurs when the eyes when your eyes can’t team properly, forcing your brain and visual system to work much harder to achieve focus and make sense of what you’re seeing. This places pressure on the trigeminal nerve (the largest and most complex nerve connected to the brain), leading to overstimulation and a wide variety of uncomfortable symptoms. Eye misalignment is usually more pronounced when viewing nearby objects, such as a book.
Some of the symptoms of eye misalignment include:
- Eye fatigue
- Eye strain
- Shoulder pain
- Neck tension
- Dry eyes
- Motion sickness
- Double vision
- Light sensitivity
- Mental exhaustion
Treating Eye Misalignment with Neurolens
Neurolens™ is the first prescription lens that uses a specially contoured prism to bring the eyes into perfect alignment. These lenses compensate for the way your eyes are misaligned at various distances, reducing pressure on the trigeminal nerve and alleviating the related symptoms.
The Neurolens glasses use a specialized measurement diagnostic to take your individual dynamic eye alignment into account and determine the specifics of your prescriptions. The prism power will gradually increase from distance to near so as to bring the eyes into proper alignment. By the end of your treatment with Neurolens glasses, you may end up with an impressive 80% reduction in your symptoms.
Eye doctors have added small amounts of prisms to prescription lenses for years. These conventional prism lenses only address eye misalignment at a single distance. Conversely, the innovative contoured prisms in Neurolens glasses account for misalignment at all distances, both near and far.
Neurolenses can be inserted into virtually any glass frame and worn just like you wear regular glasses. Also, they can be added to your regular vision prescription to correct misalignment.
