Find The Help You Crave

It’s no surprise we all get a lot done by focusing on close-up work for hours on end. This kind of work can eventually take its toll on your body, causing a range of issues, including headaches, neck and shoulder pain, or even eye strain.

In some cases, you may be experiencing what is known as trigeminal dysphoria. Fortunately, our team is here to help! Please book an appointment with our team, and we can help use the latest technology to diagnose and manage your symptoms today.

What is Trigeminal Dysphoria?

Trigeminal dysphoria is a is a term that describes a variety of symptoms including headaches, eyestrain, dry eye sensation, motion sickness, neck, and shoulder pain. It can sometimes disguise itself as symptoms of dry eye, when in fact it’s caused by eyestrain related to prolonged close-up work.

Symptomatic patients have an ocular misalignment causing the visual system to work overtime to compensate, constantly making small binocular adjustments and stressing the largest and most complex nerve connecting to the brain, the trigeminal nerve.

When you’re doing close-up work, your eyes are making constant binocular movements that can produce excess proprioceptive afferent fibers that can overstimulate your trigeminal ganglion.

This overstimulation then causes headaches, eyestrain, and even dry eye symptoms.

What is Neurolens Technology?

The first step to managing trigeminal dysphoria is with the use of the Neurolens Ocular Motility Testing device. This device measures how well your eyes track objects at near and far distances, and their ability for binocular movement.

By taking into account these measurements and your prescription, we can develop lenses to help reduce or even eliminate your symptoms.

The lenses that Neurolens technology produces are known as contoured prism lenses. What this means is that it takes the information provided by the Ocular Motility test and designs lenses to correct these slight misalignments while also correcting your refractive error.
