How Does Neurolens Work?
Prism lenses work by bending the light in a way that compensates for weakness in the muscles around the eyes. There are six different muscles around each eye, and it only takes weakness in one of them to cause you to experience a range of problems such as eye strain, headaches, or double vision. Double vision occurs when you see two images of the same object at the same time, either above and below one another, side by side, or even overlapping. These may not sound serious, but they can have a significant impact on your day-to-day life.
When the prism is incorporated into the lens, it alters the light so that the images that you see are aligned in the same plane, bringing them together into one clear picture. This also reduces the strain that is placed on the muscles around the eyes, helping to ease the symptoms that you may have been experiencing.
What Conditions Can Neurolens Help With?
Prism glasses lenses like Neurolens have been shown to help with several different vision problems and conditions, including:
Problems with the eye muscles, as seen in conditions like Graves’ Disease and Strabismus
Nerve-related problems like Multiple Sclerosis or Diabetes
Digital eye strain
Binocular Vision Dysfunction (BVD)
Neck and shoulder pain associated with BVD
How Much Prism Do I Need To Be Incorporated Into My Lenses?
Every patient is unique and so are their eyes. This means that the amount of prism in the lenses will be based on your individual needs. The initial amount is decided to use a Neurolens eye-tracking device which measures the level of misalignment you are experiencing and decides how much adjustment is needed to correct it. This forms the basis of the initial prescription you’ll be given. However, it’s then perfectly normal to ‘fine tune’ the amount of prism until you achieve optimal relief from your symptoms and clarity of vision.
How Effective Is Neurolens?
Neurolens is extremely successful and effective. The majority of patients will see up to as much as an 80% reduction in the eye strain symptoms that they were previously experiencing.
