Contoured Prism Lenses
Neurolenses are the first and only prescription lenses that add a contoured prism to bring the eyes into alignment. Contoured prism has been shown in studies to relieve the headaches, neck/shoulder pain and eyestrain that many people experience when using digital devices, reading or doing detail work.
When the eyes aren’t in sync, the brain must do the work to compensate for the misalignment. The additional work puts stress on the trigeminal nerve – the largest nerve in the brain and the one responsible for the majority of head and neck sensations.
To think of it a little different, imagine a vehicle. To get optimal fuel mileage and a smoother ride, your tires have to be in alignment. If your tires are not in alignment, the engine efficiency is reduced and you can feel the vehicle fighting you while you are holding the steering wheel. This is similar to your eyes, which can be fighting your brain if alignment is off.
Most patients see results with their neurolenses within the first 3-7 days of wearing them; however, some patients take a bit longer to adjust — sometimes up to 2 or 3 weeks.
A survey of hundreds of neurolens patients showed that 93% of patients got relief from their symptoms.
