What eye conditions cause neck and shoulder pain?
Tension and pain in your neck and shoulders can result if you have an eye condition called binocular vision dysfunction (BVD). This condition occurs when your eyes are slightly misaligned, which makes it difficult for the eyes to send clear messages to your brain.
Eye misalignments can trigger neck and shoulder pain if you frequently tilt your head toward your shoulder to realign and clear your vision.
Modern Optometry offers an innovative new lens design that corrects an eye misalignment, giving you rapid and lasting relief from bothersome symptoms. Dr. Verna uses Neurolens® to treat individuals who wear prescription glasses, contact lenses, or no lenses at all.
When should I consider optometry care for neck and shoulder pain?
You should schedule a consultation at Modern Optometry if you have persistent neck and shoulder pain that occurs with:
- Dry eye
- Eye strain
- Light sensitivity
- Motion sickness
For some, symptoms of an eye misalignment can be severe enough to interfere with your daily routine. You may not be able to read, be physically active, or drive a car without experiencing an increase in your symptoms.
Using the Neurolens system, Dr. Verna can improve the clarity of your vision and prevent additional neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and other symptoms.
How does Neurolens work for neck and shoulder pain?
Neurolens is a prescription lens that features a contoured prism to correct your eye alignment. The lenses relieve eye strain when you focus on objects up close, and at a distance, so you no longer have to compensate by tilting your head and squinting your eyes to see clearly.
During a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Verna can measure your eye misalignment at different distances to create the Neurolens prescription you need. Your new lenses will feature areas of contoured prisms where you need it most to optimize your visual clarity.
You should wear your lenses at all times while you’re awake, especially when using your computer or another digital device, to ensure the best treatment outcome.
