    I am new to the bryan college station area being a college student. I needed to find a new eye doctor. I am one of those people that, take a long time exsploring my options online. When I first started my search they were the first ones that poped onto my screen. When I looked at there website I intantly felt like this was the one...

    Now that we have a better understanding of why eye misalignment can cause eye strain, headaches and neck strain, let’s talk a little more about what we can do to correct for this misalignment.

    We can use corrective prism, incorporated into your eyeglass prescription, to shift what you see to where your eyes most comfortably are aligned. Here’s where things get really exciting. Standard prism can only shift what we see the same amount throughout the whole lens, regardless of whether we are looking at something far away or something up close. NeuroLens is the first lens that has contoured prism, allowing us to increase the amount of prism for near work to compensate for the increased demand we face with near tasks.

    This contoured prism allows the NeuroLens to reduce eye strain and the constant over-stimulation of our trigeminal nerve that would otherwise have to correct for this misalignment. If you have symptoms of trigeminal overstimulation, such as headache, neck ache, eye strain, eye fatigue, or dry eye, call Eye Care Center and ask about Neuro Lens!

     

    Have you ever wondered how it’s possible that we have two eyes, yet see only one image? This is due to a system that connects our eyes and brain that allows us to see one clear image. For this to happen, a number of things have to go right. Especially when our eyes move, it’s a pretty complex system that is at play. With the digital revolution, we are seeing more issues and complaints of eye strain, eye fatigue, headaches and neck strain. It is believed that this can stem largely in part from a misalignment of our eyes, especially while doing near tasks such as computer work, reading, or even viewing our phones!

    It is a lot more work on our visual system to keep an image clear and single when it is nearer to us (i.e. our computer or phone!). Because of this, the majority of the population’s eyes want to naturally align behind where they need to be. However, if this occurred, we would see double.. YIKES! Our brain is so good at not allowing this to happen, that it sends compensatory signals to bring the desired near target in to focus. By doing this constantly, it can cause overstimulation of our trigeminal nerve, leading to eye fatigue, eye strain, headaches AND even neck aches!

    Check out this video for a visual of this process.

    Until recently, we have not had a solution to address this problem.. Luckily, with new EyeBrain technology… we do! We are so excited to share that EyeBrain technology and NeuroLens is available at Eye Care Center in College Station.

    If you have one or more of the following, you may be a good candidate for NeuroLens:

    • Neck, shoulder or back pain
    • Headache
    • Eye Strain
    • Blurred Vision
