If you are experiencing double vision, eye strain, headaches, or eye muscle misalignment, you could have trigeminal dysphoria. If so, the new Neurolenses may be right for you.
At Associates in Ophthalmology, we are proud to offer new and advanced Neurolens to our patients in Livingston, New Jersey, and surrounding areas.
What Are Neurolenses?
Neurolenses are specialty glasses with a contoured prism design that can bring your eyes into alignment and improve various symptoms caused by trigeminal dysphoria. You may not be aware that many of the symptoms you are experiencing may result from eye misalignment.
Thanks to the state-of-the-art Neurolens Measurement Device, your eye doctor can quickly and efficiently determine if eye misalignment could cause your symptoms.
What is Eye Misalignment?
For your brain to form a complete image to see, your eyes must be aligned and have smooth, coordinated movement. In a severe case of eye misalignment, you may be able to see that one eye drifts physically.
Eye misalignment can often cause eye strain as your brain works extra hard to compensate. This compensation can put stress on your trigeminal nerve.
The trigeminal nerve is the largest nerve in the brain. The trigeminal nerve is also responsible for most feelings in your head and neck.
Your eye doctor can use several methods to test for a muscle imbalance or minor eye misalignment. The new Neurolens Measurement Device allows your eye doctor to determine how much misalignment is occurring in your eyes.
After collecting the data, it gives your eye doctor detailed information about possible eye misalignment and what type and power of Neurolens prism will be needed to correct the misalignment.
How Do Neurolenses Work?
Neurolenses have a specially contoured prism inside the lens, which essentially corrects your eye misalignment. These lenses are designed to bring your eyes back into alignment, which will improve any symptoms you are experiencing due to trigeminal dysphoria.
Thanks to the Neurolens Measurement Device, your eye doctor can tell exactly where to place the correction in the lenses to provide the best result. The intelligent technology of the Neurolens is much more convenient and allows for less trial and error compared to traditional prism lenses.
Once your Neurolenses are made, they will be specifically crafted and customized to fit your unique needs, eyes, and prescription.
How Do I Get Neurolenses?
Since Neurolenses are prescription glasses, you will need to visit your eye doctor for an evaluation to determine if they will work for you. If your eye doctor suspects that your symptoms may be caused by eye misalignment, they will use the Neurolens Measurement Device to determine the amount of misalignment.
This test only takes about two minutes and can provide your eye doctor with invaluable insight into the cause of your symptoms. If misalignment is present and your eye doctor believes Neurolenses will help improve your symptoms, they will write you a prescription.
To receive a prescription for Neurolenses and order a pair, you will need to have a refraction. A refraction is a process where your eye doctor can determine what prescription you need, aside from prism correction.
