As technology advances, it provides eye doctors new ways of dealing with rising eye problems and improving vision. Digital eyestrain is one of those eye issues. This problem is seeing a marked rise as people’s lifestyles move towards remote learning and working.
One of the leading causes of digital eyestrain is eye misalignment. According to experts, two-thirds of people suffer from this condition. Fortunately, these people can now get the help they need with Neurolens®, an innovative technology that reduces and corrects eye misalignment. If you have some form of eye misalignment, you may be a candidate for Neurolens.
Although you have a pair of eyes, they may not always function in perfect harmony. Synchrony allows your brain to combine the images each eye provides into one. Binocular vision dysfunction (BVD) and strabismus are the two main forms of eye misalignment.
Binocular vision dysfunction is not as noticeable as other forms of eye misalignment and does not cause double vision. The condition is often too elusive to tell just by looking at someone. You may experience strain and other symptoms as your brain and eyes work hard to create a single image. If you suspect you have BVD, consult your eye doctor to find out if you are a candidate for Neurolens.
This type of eye misalignment is certainly the most obvious. People with this condition have eyes pointing in different directions. While it results in double vision in adults, this is not the case with children. Your little one’s brain can ignore images from one eye to render their vision clearer.
Adults experience double vision because the brain receives images from both eyes but cannot combine them into one image. As a result, you may experience symptoms similar to binocular vision dysfunction. If you have strabismus, you may be a good candidate for Neurolens.
There are many symptoms of eye misalignments. If you have noticed the following symptoms, you may be a candidate for Neurolens:
Blurred or double vision
Eyestrain or pain
Sensitivity to light
Neck or shoulder pain
Vertigo, motion sickness, or dizziness
Skipping lines or losing your place when reading
Neurolens is an innovative creation that will offer natural relief from the symptoms indicated above. The symptoms present when the trigeminal nerve suffers chronic stress. The nerve has a few branches—the maxillary, mandibular, and ophthalmic branches. When you have eye misalignment, the ophthalmic branch fails to send the correct information to the brain. Incorrect information leads to the indicated symptoms.
Neurolens are effective in such instances. It entails using specialized equipment to measure the alignment and synchrony of your eyes. Next, your eye doctor does a fitting for adaptable, contoured prisms. They progressively vary in strength from far to nearby objects. It effectively accounts for eye misalignment and offers you natural relief.
You may experience digital eyestrain if you spend long hours working on computers or staring at digital screens. If this is the case, you may be a good candidate for this novel treatment. Neurolenses are effective in alleviating the symptoms of the condition.
