What Is Neurolens?

The 21st century is a digital one, and most of us spend our days surrounded by screens, LED lights, and advanced devices. But when you spend too long focusing intently on a screen, you’ll likely start to notice fatigue, discomfort, and headaches—all tell-tale signs of digital eye strain. So what do you do?

If those symptoms sound familiar, it might be time to try Neurolens. Neurolenses incorporate a contoured prism into their lenses to accommodate eye misalignment, making it much easier to spend time on tasks that require intense focus. They’re an incredible way to deal with eye strain, headaches, misalignment, and more!

What Causes Eye Misalignment?

The human eye is incredibly complex—a lot more so than most people think. Light bends as it enters the clear front lens to focus on a singular point on the retina. There, this light is sent as information through the optic nerve so it can reach the brain.

Every time you focus your eyes on something, switch between objects, or even stare at the same thing for a long time, you’re using tiny optical muscles. They control the lens and how it focuses, alongside each minuscule eye movement you make.

Just like every other muscle in the body, your eyes can get tired when overworked. Think of any time you’ve worked out a little too hard or spent too long doing a physical task—the muscles you’re using eventually reach a point when you need a break. The eye is exactly the same; repetitive tasks or constant strain can overwork these muscles, and they start to develop issues.

The Signs of Eye Misalignment and Strain

When you spend too long at your desk staring at a screen, your eyes will send signals that they need a break. You may start to experience blurriness or difficulty focusing as your eyes work too hard to focus on the same point. This can cause:

  • Headaches
  • Eye strain
  • Tension and pain in the back and neck
  • Blurry vision
  • Irritation
  • Light sensitivity

This is due to the muscles beginning to struggle; they can drift apart slightly, and the information sent to the brain can be messy. This is called “binocular vision dysfunction” or “eye misalignment.” It’s a lot more common than most people think, affecting millions of people every year.

What Are Neurolens Glasses?

When you’re dealing with eye misalignment, it can make screen usage miserable. Your eyes will likely work too hard to focus, and you’ll start dealing with the uncomfortable symptoms of eye strain. There’s good news, though—Neurolens may be able to help.

Neurolens glasses are a type of specialty eyewear designed specifically to correct eye misalignment and reduce the symptoms of strain and misalignment. These glasses incorporate a unique contoured prism into the lens itself, adjusting light as it enters the eye to accommodate your natural misalignment.

These prisms are customized to your specific situation, acting as an excellent way to address the symptoms of misalignment and strain. This means that whether you’re trying to write a compelling story, analyze a spreadsheet, edit a graphic, or perform any other task that requires intense focus, Neurolens may be able to help.

How Does Neurolens Work?

You may be wondering—”How does Neurolens work?”

When you visit an optometrist—one who’s part of the Neurolens network—to discuss Neurolenses, they’ll need to examine your eyes. They’ll take a series of measurements to determine the exact level of misalignment you’re dealing with, and use this information to decide whether or not Neurolens is the right solution for you.

Then, these measurements are used to create a customized pair of lenses. Once the glasses are made, they’ll naturally and subtly alter light as it enters the eye. These glasses can come in prescription and non-prescription form, making it a convenient and adaptable solution.

When you’re wearing the glasses, they bend light rays as they pass through the lenses. You won’t even notice the prisms in the lenses—they’re almost entirely invisible to the naked eye. As the light reaches your eyes, it refracts to the proper place, making it much easier for your entire visual system to process the information it receives.

Then, you’re able to perform your tasks and hobbies without worrying about headaches and misalignment. Your misalignment will be taken care of, so instead you can enjoy clear, comfortable vision!
