Headaches commonly accompany adulthood. They arise from medical conditions, lifestyle choices, and more. The extensive use of digital devices at home and at work has led to a new entrant: computer vision syndrome (CVS) or digital eyestrain.
Worryingly, this condition is responsible for approximately 27% of reported headache cases. While several strategies are available to manage these symptoms, one solution stands out: Neurolens lenses.
Understanding Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)
CVS is associated with people leading digitally driven lives. On average, individuals in the United States spend around seven hours daily engaged with computers. This lifestyle leads to computer vision syndrome. It impacts the body in various ways, but headaches and migraines are the primary ones.
How Does CVS Cause Headaches?
Computer work involves near-vision tasks requiring prolonged focus on objects close to your face. Unfortunately, your eyes are not designed for sustained near-vision focus. Ideally, you should maintain a healthy balance between near and distance vision. Continuous near-vision work can result in eye misalignment, the primary cause of headaches and migraines associated with CVS.
Understanding Eye Misalignment
Your eyes gather visual information that it then transmits to the brain for integration. This process can become complex or interrupted in some individuals, leading to eye misalignment. Eye misalignment occurs when each eye looks at different objects simultaneously.
When misaligned, the brain receives two distinct and dissimilar images, hindering optimal vision. For proper visual functioning, the brain must receive similar images in various aspects. With eye misalignment, one eye may focus on an object while the other deviates upward or downward.
Eye doctors use an nMD or Neurolens Measurement Device to measure misalignment and convergence ratio. This device helps eliminate variability and biases from the measurements. The nMD uses a tracking system to get objective eye movement and focus measurements.
Neurolens is a revolutionary solution that combines neurology and optometry. Researchers realized that misalignment of the eyes significantly strains the brain. Neurolens realigns the eyes, alleviating symptoms associated with eye misalignment.
How Does It Work?
Neurolens incorporates a unique contoured prism technology. The prism technology alters how light enters the eye, ultimately resolving eye misalignment. Eye doctors can customize these lenses to fit patients and cater to their specific prescription requirements. Neurolenses are crafted using premium materials and feature antireflective coatings.
The Benefits of Neurolens
Neurolens is a groundbreaking innovation that effectively relieves mental and nerve strain. Remarkably, 90% of Neurolens users report a reduction in CVS symptoms.
Common CVS Symptoms That Neurolens Helps With
Another common consequence of eye misalignment is chronic headaches. Misaligned eyes result in conflicting images reaching the brain. This causes immense strain as the brain tries to reconcile these contradictory signals. Unfortunately, eye misalignments are often overlooked in conventional exams, leading to misdiagnosis of the root cause of CVS-induced headaches.
Misaligned eyes affect your brain and vision. Constant adjustments for clear vision can lead to quicker eye fatigue, especially during computer work. Additionally, working in poorly lit environments can exacerbate eye fatigue. To combat this, Neurolens can be a helpful solution.
