The average American adult spends 9+ hours daily on digital devices. Of those, 65% complain of headaches, neck/shoulder pain and eyestrain when using your devices. Speaking of devices, 70% of all Americans use more than 2 devices at the same time.
Historically, humans primarily used their visual systems to work at a distance and the ability to see prey or enemies from far away was most important. This has shifted tremendously in a very short period of time as we now sit with our eyes converged upon a screen within arms length most of our awake time.
If our eyes are not aligned with each other, they must work harder to maintain this converged state. We know that 90% of the population has a greater misalignment at near than at far. This sets us up for a serious headache and strain problem, which we call digital vision syndrome.
There has been a break through in technology designed to help you with this pain and discomfort. It is called a neurolens, a lens which uses a contoured prism to bring the eyes into alignment. This relieves headaches, neck/shoulder pain and eyestrain.
We are excited to have this new technology for the last 2 years. In this time, we have seen this technology achieve tremendous success in helping people relieve their discomfort and to see more clearly.
Read the recent review from one of our patients:
"Neurolens has literally saved me. I didn't always wear my
glasses at the computer because I don't require glasses to
see well, but with neurolenses I decided to make it
mandatory to wear my glasses when I'm at a computer.
Within a week, I felt my symptoms almost completely
alleviate. The first 3 days, the symptoms were still slightly
there but got better every day I wore them. I've had my
neurolenses for a few months now, and I was able to work in
front of my computer for 16 hours straight yesterday without
any problems. Neurolenses were the solution 100% and I
am so thankful for this technology."
