In today's digital world, we are using our eyes less and less to their full potential, and we are being exposed to many ocular issues because of this. One of the many eye conditions that has developed is eye misalignment. Misaligned eyes are relatively common, as about two-thirds of all working people have them. They cause various symptoms that are easy to miss if you are not familiar with them.
Do your eyes feel tired often, and do you get headaches at the end of the day? Do you have a painful neck and shoulders? Do these symptoms tend to get worse as the day ends? It is possible you have misaligned eyes, and Neurolens could be the answer.
What Is Neurolens?
Neurolenses are prescriptive lenses that help correct misaligned eyes. They use a contoured prism to correct alignment. It is the first lens created for this condition to relieve the symptoms effectively. The technology is clinically tested and patented, making it significantly different from regular glasses.
The lenses are customized according to the needs of each patient. They can be adjusted to fit any prescription of misalignment. They can do this because the contoured prism is placed precisely where the misalignment occurs.
How Does It Work?
Neurolens are premium lenses, meaning they are made of high-quality materials. They also have above-standard antireflective coatings to make your vision as crisp as possible. They use micro prism technology to adjust the position of the images. By doing so, they help the eyes register a single image in your brain.
By adjusting the images you see, Neurolens helps minimize eye misalignment symptoms. They also significantly reduce the stress on your eye muscles and the amount of work your brain has to do to reconcile contradicting or duplicate images.
How Long Before You See the Results?
Neurolens are pretty effective; most people see results only a short time after using them. According to a study, 93 percent of wearers experienced symptom relief after starting to use the lenses. Additionally, 81.6 percent of patients who reported chronic headaches daily said they had minimal to zero symptoms after using the lenses.
Most patients will see results within three to seven days of starting their prescription. Sometimes, it can take as long as two to three weeks. How long it takes will depend on the severity of your misalignment and other factors.
What Is It?
Our eyes collect images independently when they are open. The images that normal eyes capture are slightly different but are accessible for the brain to reconcile. It is easy to reconcile the images because both eyes focus on the same general area. With misaligned eyes, both eyes have a different general focus area. The difference can be so big it causes strain in the visual system and other adverse effects.
How to Measure Misalignment
Eye doctors use a Neurolens Measurement Device or nMD to measure the misalignment and convergence ratio. The nMD uses a tracking system to take objective measurements of the movement and focus of the eyes, this helps eliminate variabilities and biases, which then can be used to give an advised prism or alignment to be added to corrective glasses.
