Neurolens® are the first and only prescription lenses that include a contoured prism into their design. The purpose of this prism is to bring the eyes into alignment in order to make vision more comfortable and to relieve eye strain, headaches, shoulder pain and neck pain that is commonly experienced by patients who spend a great deal of time on heavily focused work. This includes using screens and digital devices, reading or completing detailed work such as drawing or sewing.
Eye misalignment is a fairly common problem. It occurs when the eyes don’t work together in perfect synchronization, and instead, your brain and eyes are forced to work harder in order for you to see clearly and remain focused. This places pressure on the trigeminal nerve, which is the largest nerve in the brain and the one responsible for the majority of the sensations felt in the head and neck.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from eye misalignment that would benefit from Neurolens® and you should arrange a consultation with our experienced eye experts.
Tired, aching eyes
Painful eyes when trying to use a computer or digital device
Dry, itchy or irritated eyes
Our team will be able to perform a Neurolens® measurement test – a short assessment which will determine how misaligned your eyes are and what contoured prism prescription is needed to relieve your symptoms.
Neurolens® lenses can be placed into virtually any frames, enabling patients to continue to enjoy clear vision while maintaining their own style.
