Understanding Neurolens

When a person’s eyes are not aligned, their visual system has to work extra hard to compensate for the problem. This puts stress on one of the nerves connected to the brain. Neurolenses are designed to enhance alignment for proper vision.

At Summit Eyecare, we offer neurolenses for effective relief from headaches, eye strain, and other problems caused by eye misalignment. During your first consultation, we will examine your eyes using state-of-the-art equipment to determine the extent of misalignment. This helps us in giving you the correct prescription for optimal relief. You can trust our eye doctors to take care of your vision and give you long-lasting solutions at our Idaho Falls, Merlin, Pancheri, Pocatello, St. Anthony, and Rexburg locations.

What Are Neurolenses, and How Do They Work?

Neurolenses refer to prescription lenses that add a contoured prism that help in correcting eye misalignment. Neurolonses alter light, aligning the images you see in one place for a single clear picture. This reduces strain on the muscles surrounding the eye. Many patients report seeing results within a week of using neurolenses, while others will experience the benefits gradually.  

Since every patient is unique, the amount of prism put in the lenses differs according to an individual’s condition. When you visit our optometrists for neurolenses, we use an eye-tracking device to measure your eye’s misalignment to determine the most suitable adjustment you need. Our optometrists can also adjust the prism in the future to help you maintain optimal vision at any stage of life. These lenses can be put in almost any type of frame you prefer. Our optometrists may advise you to use neurolens during daily activities or only when using digital devices or reading. 

Benefits of Neurolens

The main benefit of neurolens is eliminating the problems that occur due to eye misalignments. Common benefits of neurolenses include:

  • Improving coordination and gross motor function
  • Reducing double vision
  • Reducing eye strains and light sensitivity
  • Relieving neck pain, shoulder pain, migraines, and headaches
  • Improving depth perception
  • Reducing motion sickness
