People are using digital devices and spending more and more time in front of screens every day. Our eyes are feeling the strain – literally. Our eyes are tired, red, dry and sensitive to light, not to mention the accompanying neck pain, headaches, and muscle stiffness that often accompany extended screen time usage. Not everyone has a migraine or a headache because of stress or fatigue; some people suffer from visual misalignment which causes these symptoms. Binocular Vision Dysfunction is the term coined by optometrists as the collective term of visual problems that are due to a misalignment of the eye or problem in someone’s visual development.
neurolens® is a reliable and effective solution that utilizes a specific prism in a lens that corrects this misalignment and immediately provides relief in headaches and migraines.
neurolenses® are the first and only prescription lenses that add a contoured prism to bring the eyes into alignment and are more than just computer glasses. neurolenses® are also available as progressive lenses.
Contoured prisms has been shown in studies to relieve the headaches, neck/shoulder pain and eyestrain that many people experience when using digital devices, reading or doing detail work.
At Advanced Eyecare Optometric Center, the neurolens® measurement test is completed quickly during your regular eye exam by our optometrist. The test measures the degree of your misalignment at near and far and will allow us to determine if you have a misalignment in your vision. We’ll find the contoured prism prescription that is right for you and you’ll quickly “see” how neurolenses® can relieve your symptoms.
