Visual alignment is unique to everyone. Some may suffer from an obvious misalignment of the eyes that can be detected just by looking at them. However, many people have a misalignment that is so subtle they may not even realize they are affected. This is because the symptoms are incredibly varied.
Visual misalignment is commonly named binocular vision dysfunction. It takes its name from the fact that the eyes do not work together perfectly.
Neurolens is a unique visual treatment designed to counteract the symptoms of visual misalignment. These prescription lenses are the only lenses available that contain a precise amount of contoured micro prism designed specifically to correct visual misalignment.
How Does Prism Help with Eye Misalignment Issues?
Prism is a term used to describe an alteration in how light passes through the lens and ultimately our eyes. When the prism is incorporated into your prescription lenses, it alters the light so that the images detected by each eye are aligned in the same plane. This prevents double vision and allows you to see a single, clear image. The result is much less resistance felt by the muscles around your eyes, decreasing the amount of eyestrain you feel.
Patients who opt for micro prism lenses can experience up to a 50% improvement in their symptoms as soon as they start to use them. However, some people require some fine-tuning of the prescription to achieve optimal improvement. At this point, Neurolens patients report an 80% reduction in their overall symptoms.
