What is Binocular Vision Dysfunction?

People suffering from Binocular Vision Dysfunction have a small amount of vision misalignment not found on a routine eye exam. Their body corrects the misalignment by overusing and straining the eye muscles, causing the symptoms of Binocular Vision Dysfunction.

Typical Symptoms

What is the solution?

NeuroVisual Specialists have made pioneering discoveries into the diagnosis and treatment of Binocular Vision Dysfunction. Our patients undergo a detailed and thorough examination of their vision, including assessment for small amounts of vision misalignment (the NeuroVisual Evaluation). Near vision, far vision and alignment problems will be corrected using glasses with specialized micro-prism lenses.

Expect to feel noticeably better right away. The average patient will notice a 50% reduction of symptoms by the end of the first visit. Improvement continues over the next several visits as the micro-prism lenses are fine-tuned, giving the average patient an 80% reduction of symptoms by the end of treatment.

​​How do I know if a NeuroVisual Evaluation can help me?
A scientifically validated questionnaire has been developed by researchers to screen for Binocular Vision Dysfunction due to Vertical Heterophoria.

The number and severity of symptoms are different for each person. Some people are disabled; others aren’t bothered much.  Many people with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) develop a small amount of eye misalignment from their injury that cause these symptoms.
