Neurolens glasses are an innovative eyewear solution designed to address symptoms caused by eye misalignment. Neurolens glasses use innovative contoured prism technology to correct eye misalignment, reducing eye strain, headaches, and neck pain.

If these sound like symptoms you experience regularly, you might be dealing with eye misalignment. Your eye doctor can help determine what’s causing your discomfort and whether Neurolens is the right option for you.

Understanding Neurolens Glasses

Neurolens glasses are specially crafted eyewear featuring contoured prism lenses. 

These lenses adjust the light entering your eyes, helping to align them properly. Eye misalignment can lead to various symptoms, particularly when focusing on near tasks such as reading or using digital devices. Neurolens glasses correct this misalignment, providing a more comfortable visual experience and reducing related discomfort.

Benefits of Neurolens Glasses

Neurolens glasses offer many significant benefits, such as:

  • Reduced Eye Strain: Neurolens glasses alleviate eye strain by correcting misalignment, allowing you to focus on tasks for longer without discomfort.
  • Headache Relief: Frequent headaches, especially those triggered by visual tasks, can be relieved by addressing eye misalignment with Neurolens glasses.
  • Enhanced Comfort: These glasses can also reduce neck and shoulder pain associated with prolonged visual effort.
  • Better Visual Clarity: By improving eye alignment, Neurolens glasses enhance overall visual clarity and comfort, especially during extended use of digital devices.
  • Better Quality of Life: Your vision should be clear and comfortable, otherwise it can get in the way of you enjoying your daily life. 

Who Are Neurolens Glasses Made For?

Neurolens glasses are particularly beneficial for individuals who experience frequent headaches or migraines linked to visual activities, chronic neck or shoulder pain, and persistent eye strain or fatigue, especially when using computers, smartphones, or reading.

Neurolens glasses can address these symptoms, especially helping to alleviate discomfort during prolonged near tasks such as reading or detailed work.

Symptoms of Eye Misalignment

Our eyes are supposed to work together seamlessly, giving our brains one clear image to process. However, for many people, this isn’t the case. Due to various reasons, such as brain injuries, congenital issues, or certain diseases, eye misalignment can occur, leading to a number of symptoms.

Your eye doctor can diagnose eye misalignment, but late onset of eye misalignment could indicate another health issue. If you’ve developed eye misalignment as an adult when you previously had no issues, you should contact your healthcare provider right away. 

Common signs of binocular vision dysfunction or eye misalignment include:

  • Eye pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Motion sickness
  • Eye strain
  • Difficulty driving
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Double vision
  • Feeling off-balance
  • Eye fatigue
  • Vertigo
  • Losing your place or skipping lines when reading
  • Anxiety
  • Clumsiness
  • Panic attacks

Computer Vision & Neurolens

Neurolens glasses can also help address vision issues related to computer vision, or digital eye strain. Digital eye strain is caused by prolonged exposure to LED screens, such as your phone or laptop. It can lead to discomfort in your eyes and strain your vision. If you spend long days behind a computer, ask your eye doctor about Neurolens glasses.

Our knowledgeable and welcoming team can listen to your concerns and provide personalized solutions to enhance your visual comfort.

Can I Wear Neurolens Glasses Outside?

You can wear Neurolens glasses while outside. However, for outdoor use, it’s important to consider the following:

  • UV Protection: If you plan to wear Neurolens glasses outdoors, ensure that they come with UV protection to shield your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays.
  • Tinted Lenses: If you spend a lot of time outdoors, you might want to consider Neurolens glasses with photochromic lenses, which darken in response to sunlight, providing comfort and protection in varying light conditions.
  • Prescription Sunglasses: Alternatively, you can have Neurolens technology incorporated into prescription sunglasses, combining the benefits of both.

Consult with your optometrist to explore options for Neurolens glasses that are suitable for indoor and outdoor use, ensuring they meet your vision correction needs and provide adequate protection against sunlight.
