Improving Eye Health with Innovative Neurolens Technology
Are you experiencing painful symptoms such as headaches, eye strain, neck and shoulder pain, tired eyes, dry eyes or light sensitivity?
Human eyes have never worked harder. Here at Family Vision Center, we can provide you relief from your overworked eyes with neurolens. Neurolenses can reduce the painful symptoms and restore your naturally comfortable vision. Ask our doctors today about neurolens or visit neurolenses.com to learn more.
How do they work?
Here’s how they work: Your brain is constantly in communication with your two eyes, keeping them aligned and in sync to help you see the world without double vision. If your eyes are misaligned, however, your brain struggles to maintain balance. The disparity between comfortable vision and required vision can cause headaches, eye strain, neck and shoulder pain, dry eye, dizziness, and light sensitivity. Add misalignment to the strenuous demands that computer screens, phones, and other digital devices place on your visual system, and you could face daily suffering.
Fortunately, 10 years of research into headaches and their associated visual symptoms has yielded the revolutionary Neurolens. Neurolenses correct the misalignment to restore naturally comfortable vision. Family Vision Center can provide customized Neurolenses that correct your specific misalignment and give you the most comfortable vision possible in both distance and near. Family Vision Center is proud to offer this exciting new technology and we’d love to help you discover relief for your symptoms!
How do you measure my misalignment?
Family Vision Center utilizes a sophisticated instrument called the nMD2. The nMD2 is an objective, accurate and repeatable way to measure eye alignment. The cutting-edge eye tracking system allows the nMD2 to identify eye misalignment as small as 0.1 Prism Diopters, acquiring over 10,000 data points per patient. Coupled with specialized in-office testing, your eye measurements allow us to create a lens that helps with your specific symptoms.
What makes this any different than the glasses I wore in the past?
The difference is in the technology and the visual experience. Neurolenses utilize patented, clinically tested technology to correct your misalignment. With the Neurolens contoured prism technology the amount of base in prism increases (or base out decreases) gradually from the top to the bottom of the lens. This allows our doctors to correct binocular misalignment at distance, intermediate and near in a single lens. Research shows over 90 percent of patients have a larger misalignment at near than distance. Contoured prism technology can be used in a single vision, progressive or office progressive lens. There is no lens on the market that offers the same technology.
How quickly can I expect my symptoms to improve? Are there any side effects?
Most patients notice improvement within a week, although patients with extremely chronic conditions may require four to six weeks to notice an improvement. First-time Neurolens wearers typically report feeling lighter, as if there’s less burden on their heads, necks, shoulders, and eyes. But, as with any new type of lens, you may feel disoriented for about a week as you brain adapts.
