Neurolenses® for Eye Strain Relief

What Are Neurolenses®?

Proper eye alignment is essential for clear and comfortable vision. When the eyes are misaligned, a range of uncomfortable symptoms can result, including eye strain, headaches, shoulder pain and neck pain.

Eye misalignment occurs when the eyes are unable to work together as a coordinated team. This puts extra stress on your eye muscles to maintain focus for clear vision. Eye misalignment also places pressure on the trigeminal nerve, the part of the nervous system responsible for sending sensations felt in the head and neck to the brain.

Neurolenses® are the first and only prescription lenses that include a contoured prism in their design to bring the eyes into proper alignment, resulting in improved vision clarity and a reduction of uncomfortable symptoms.

Which Symptoms Can Neurolenses® Treat?

Neurolenses® help to alleviate the following symptoms associated with misalignment:

  • Eye fatigue
  • Eye strain
  • Light sensitivity
  • Dry, itchy or irritated eyes
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck pain
  • Dizziness

How Do Neurolenses Work?

While traditional prism lenses improve visual comfort, they only address misalignment at a single distance. In contrast, the contoured prisms offered by neurolenses® address misalignment at all distances by offering a smooth, gradual progression of prism power throughout the lens.

Neurolenses® are customized to the visual needs of each patient. Using a neurolens measurement test, your optometrist will be able to determine the extent of your misalignment and the most appropriate contoured prism prescription.

How Long Does it Take to See Results?

For optimal results, it is recommended to wear your neurolenses® all day long— or at least while you are in front of the computer screen or spending prolonged periods of time in front of a digital device.

Most patients notice clearer vision and a reduction of symptoms within the first week of wearing neurolenses®, but it can sometimes take up to two or three weeks.

Fortunately, neurolenses® can be placed into virtually any frame, so you can enjoy clear vision while maintaining freedom of style.

With neurolenses®, you can say goodbye to daily headaches and eye strain. Call Midwest Eye Associates today to schedule an appointment to see if neurolenses® are right for you.
