With this treatment update, Westchester Eyes offers patients suffering from dry eye, headaches, dizziness, light sensitivity, or eye strain, among other symptoms, a non-invasive, long-lasting solution. After issuing the initial questionnaire, the optometrists at Westchester Eyes will do a series of measurements using the Neurolens measurement device. If an eye misalignment is detected, Neurolenses will be prescribed.
While dry eye can be caused by dysfunctional or clogged Meibomian glands, it can also be a symptom of an eye misalignment due to excessive screen time. As computer and remote work becomes increasingly common in the workforce, eye misalignments have grown to affect 2 out of 3 people. Neurolenses help the eyes to stay in sync, so that they can maintain alignment even when looking at something in the near, like a computer or phone screen, without causing eye strain, dryness, or other issues.
The optometrists at Westchester Eyes are specialized in identifying and diagnosing eye misalignment and treating it through the Neurolens Solution. The practice can issue a comprehensive eye exam to gain a full understanding of a patient’s eye health. If necessary, Westchester Eyes can supplement a Neurolens prescription with a variety of dry eye treatments, including exfoliation of the eyelids or thermoelectric heat therapy to support Meibomian gland health.
