Do you experience frequent headaches? Eye strain? Did you know that eye misalignment could be the source of your discomfort?

Your eyes send signals to your brain, and this renders what you see. Even though you have two eyes, your brain creates a single visual image when you look at something, and this ability to maintain focus is the result of binocular vision. When your binocular vision is healthy, you have perfectly aligned eyes, and can see one clear image.  

Sometimes, though, the eyes are misaligned, which means they aren’t working well together as a team.  

When your eyes are misaligned, this condition is known as binocular vision disorder, or BVD. Binocular vision disorder causes serious stress on the trigeminal nerve, which is the largest and most complex nerve in your brain, leading to a condition known as Trigeminal Dysphoria. This problem may be exacerbated by the drastic increase in time spent on digital devices, such as computers, tablets, and cell phones in modern day life.  

If your eyes are misaligned, this can cause stress on your visual system and some uncomfortable symptoms. Even small misalignments can cause painful symptoms.  

What are symptoms of eye misalignment?  

If your eyes are misaligned, you may experience the following symptoms which can be uncomfortable and impact your work and your quality of life.  
  • Headaches, eye strain and fatigue  
  • Dry eye sensation 
  • Neck and shoulder pain 
  • Motion sickness/feeling off-balance  
  • Poor depth perception  
  • Clumsiness 
  • Blurred or double vision 
  • Difficulty reading
