Neurolens

Neurolens is the maker of the first and only spectacle lenses that provide patients relief from the discomfort of eye misalignment caused by today’s increased near vision demands.

Today’s eyes work hard. In work and leisure, busy people are using their near vision more than ever, especially with digital devices. The disparity between comfortable eye alignment and required eye alignment causes painful symptoms such as headaches, eye strain, neck and shoulder pain, dry eye and dizziness. Eye misalignment is greater at near than at distance for 90% of people. The Neurolens contoured prism design provides more prism where it is needed most, correcting eye misalignment to restore naturally comfortable vision and symptom relief. Find out more at www.neruolens.com
