Digital Vision Syndrome
Throughout history we have primarily used our visual system to work at distance. However, in the last decade there has been a dramatic shift in how we use our vision. With the digital revolution, we have seen a rapid increase in the use of laptops, tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices. As a result, the increased demand on our eyes is relentless.
People are using digital devices and spending more and more time in front of screens every day. Our eyes are feeling the strain – literally. Our eyes are tired, red, dry and sensitive to light, not to mention the accompanying neck pain, headaches, and muscle stiffness that often accompany extended screen time usage.
neurolens® is a new lens designed for eyeglasses that provides relief from the symptoms associated with the overuse of the digital devices. Developed specifically to reduce or eliminate eye misalignment at all distances, neurolens® is the only lens that corrects the eyes from overcompensating during digital device use.

With a misalignment in your visual system, your eyes overcompensate to see one clear image. This can trigger unwanted stress on the trigeminal nerve, causing symptoms of digital vision syndrome. When the misalignment is corrected with neurolenses, your visual system doesn’t need to work as hard, relieving your symptoms.
SightSync is the only objective visual testing system designed to accurately measure and prescribe for eye misalignment. SightSync detects eye misalignment at all distances, which is essential for comfortable vision. Your eye care professional can test if you have an eye-misalignment and treat your symptoms with the neurolens® system.
Neurolenses have helped me with relaxing my nystagus while working on computers. I work in excel a lot and I am now able to see clearer numbers without adjusting my focal point. I appreciate Dr. DenHartog and her team for listening to my vision concerns and helping me get the best vision possible! That is how the lenses have helped me. I only use them for computer work
I have seen an incredible decrease in symptoms and love these lenses so much. My nerve pain in my jaw is nearly nonexistent at this point which is incredible because I had severe debilitating pain several times a week before. I still have occasional migraines but they are more caused from tension from shoulders/neck that are related to an old injury.
