Understanding Eye Misalignment: Symptoms & Treatment

Mar 15, 2023 | Eye Health

Your eyes are a team, working together to see objects clearly and focus properly. This ability is called binocular vision, and it enables us to see with depth and perceive objects in three dimensions. However, an eye misalignment can impair your binocular vision, resulting in uncomfortable or even painful symptoms. 

Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help alleviate symptoms caused by eye misalignment. In this blog post, we share everything you need to know about the symptoms of eye misalignment and how Neurolens can help improve your quality of life.

What is eye misalignment? 

Eye misalignment is also known as binocular vision dysfunction. Binocular vision dysfunction (BVD) is a condition that affects the way our eyes work together. Normally, our eyes move in unison to focus on an object, which allows us to see it clearly and in 3D. In people with BVD, the eyes don’t work together properly, which can cause a range of symptoms, including: 

  • Headaches 
  • Eyestrain 
  • Blurred or double vision 
  • Difficulty with reading and other visual tasks 
  • Dizziness or balance problems 
  • Neck pain 
  • Eye fatigue 
  • Motion sickness 
  • Restless sleep 
  • Clumsiness 
  • Sensitivity to light

When your eyes are out of alignment, even slightly, you can experience painful symptoms.
