What Are neurolenses® ?
neurolenses® are the first and only prescription lenses that include a contoured prism in their design. The purpose of this prism is to bring the eyes into alignment in order to make vision more comfortable and to relieve the eye strain, headaches, shoulder pain and neck pain associated with eye misalignment.
Eye misalignment occurs when the eyes don’t work together in perfect synchronization, and instead, your brain and eyes are forced to work harder in order for you to see clearly and remain focused. This places pressure on the trigeminal nerve, which is the largest nerve in the brain and the one responsible for the majority of the sensations felt in the head and neck.
The alignment of your eyes is essential to your ability to see the world around you clearly. The misalignment can also cause symptoms such as headaches, dry eye, and even neck strain.
What Symptoms Do neurolenses Help Treat?
neurolenses help relieve the following symptoms associated with misalignment.
- Tired, aching eyes
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
- Light sensitivity
- Eype pain when trying to use a computer or digital device
- Dry, itchy or irritated eyes
You will undergo a neurolens measurement test – a short assessment to determine the extent of your misalignment and what contoured prism prescription is needed to relieve your symptoms.
neurolens lenses can be placed into virtually any frame, enabling you to continue to enjoy clear vision while maintaining your own style.
You don’t have to settle for daily headaches, frequent neck pain, and irritating eye strain.
