With more time spent looking at screens, it’s no surprise that many people suffer from digital eye strain, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and discomfort, which can affect productivity and quality of life. Eye misalignment is a condition where the eyes aren’t lined up so they don’t look at the same thing, and can also cause headaches, neck tension, and motion sickness.

But what if there was a way to treat these issues? Neurolens could be the answer to your eye discomfort. Neurolens is a customized prescription lens that helps align your eyes and manage accompanying eye strain symptoms.

Misalignment & Eye Strain

Your visual system consists of your brain and eyes working together to produce a clear image. When your eyes are aligned, each eye sees it’s photo, and the brain converts these into one image. 

What Is Eye Misalignment?

In eye misalignment, even though each eye forms an image, the brain manually combines these to produce an image. The continuous adjustment affects the trigeminal nerve. The trigeminal nerve connects to the brain and branches to the eyes. Even subtle degrees of eye misalignment can stimulate the nerve and cause symptoms such as:

  • Headaches
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Eye fatigue
  • Dry eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Dizziness
  • Motion sickness

Eye misalignment is becoming an increasingly common topic in our digital age, with 2 out of 3 people experiencing symptoms related to prolonged screen time and close-range focus, resulting in digital eye strain or computer vision syndrome. 

What Is Eye Strain?

Eye strain is caused when you spend long periods on near-focused activity, such as looking at screens or reading. Prolonged focus doesn’t give your eye’s lens (part of your eye that allows you to focus on objects) a chance to relax, which can result in the following symptoms:

  • Eye fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • Mild headache
  • Watery eyes
  • Irritation
  • Redness

What Is Neurolens?

Neurolens is a noninvasive and custom-tailored treatment to treat eye misalignment and alleviate eye strain symptoms to improve overall eye comfort. 

How Does Neurolens Work?

Neurolens are prescription lenses that help realign the eyes and work by employing a two-fold approach:

  1. Precision measurement: Neurolens employs modern diagnostic tools to measure your eye’s unique characteristics, including eye misalignment and visual imbalances.
  2. Customized lenses: Based on these measurements, you receive custom-tailored lenses to correct misalignment and reduce the impact of blue light, offering a personalized solution for your eye health.

Neurolens uses contoured prism technology, with correction on the lens where it’s most needed, to realign your eyes and relieve pressure on the trigeminal nerve. A contoured prism helps relieve binocular misalignment near and far in a single lens and can correct a refractive prescription. 

Neurolens can be made specific to an individual and their prescription. Neurolens is suitable for contact lens wearers or for those without a prescription, and is available in single vision, progressive, and office lens designs.

Are You a Candidate for Neurolens?

If you experience symptoms of digital eye strain, even when taking measures to enhance your vision comfort, visit your eye doctor to determine the underlying cause. They can evaluate your symptoms, measure the degree of eye misalignment, and determine whether Neurolens could help. 

Benefits of Neurolens

Neurolens are non-intrusive custom lenses designed to seamlessly integrate with your daily life, allowing you to experience relief without major disruptions. Neurolens doesn’t just mask the symptoms; it addresses the root causes of eye strain and misalignment.

These lenses aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution, as they’re personalized to your specific needs, whether you suffer from severe eye strain, symptoms from an eye misalignment, or a combination of both. For those who rely on screens for work or study, Neurolens can be a game-changer:

  • 93% of people have experienced symptom relief from wearing Neurolenses. 
  • 81.6% of people saw a reduction or absence in symptoms such as chronic daily headaches after wearing Neurolenses for 90 days. 
  • 100% of patients in a study suffering from computer vision syndrome symptoms showed a positive response with Neurolenses. 

A Step Towards Eye Health

In a world dominated by screens, taking care of your eyes is more critical than ever. Neurolens represent a significant step towards better eye health. Whether you’re struggling with eye strain, misalignment, or both, this personalized solution offers hope and comfort.

With its precision measurement and customized lenses, Neurolens tackles the root causes of eye strain and misalignment. It doesn’t just provide temporary relief; it promotes long-term eye health and, thus, is an ideal option to explore. 

If blurry vision, head and neck pain, motion sickness, and headaches affect your quality of life and work, book an appointment with Family Vision Care to determine if eye misalignment is the cause and how Neurolens can help provide relief.
