Digital devices have become a ubiquitous feature of daily life in the modern age. The devices have caused a revolution in communication and work. But they also lead to a rise in digital eyestrain. One solution to this problem is Neurolenses.
What Is Digital Eyestrain?
Digital eyestrain is a condition resulting from the prolonged use of digital devices. Its symptoms include eyestrain and headaches. You may also experience dry eyes and blurred vision.
Individuals with digital eyestrain can have difficulty focusing. They also get neck and shoulder pain. These symptoms can be exacerbated by poor lighting and improper viewing distances.
The root cause of digital eyestrain is a misalignment between the eyes and brain. When you look at digital devices, your eyes must work harder to focus and converge. The effort can cause muscle strain and fatigue, leading to digital eyestrain symptoms.
What Are Neurolenses?
Neurolenses are a type of eyeglass lenses that incorporate advanced prism technology. Their design addresses the misalignment between the eyes and the brain. They provide a customized prescription to correct the degree of eye misalignment found.
How Do Neurolenses Work?
Neurolenses use small amounts of prism in the lenses to correct eye misalignment. The prisms in the lenses help align the eyes, reducing the effort required to focus and converge. It results in reduced symptoms of digital eyestrain.
A Neurolens provider will perform a neurofunctional eye exam to determine the degree of eye misalignment. The provider will use a specialized device to measure eye movement and coordination. They will use the results to determine the degree of eye misalignment and prescribe Neurolenses customized to your needs.
