As Neuro Visual Optometrists, we understand that proper binocular vision is essential for our patients’ overall visual health. Binocular vision dysfunction can cause problems such as double vision, headaches, dizziness, and eyestrain. It is a condition that requires specialized treatment and care to manage effectively.
Post-COVID Infection Leading To Binocular Vision Dysfunction
Recently, there have been reports of patients who have experienced binocular vision dysfunction following a COVID-19 infection. The virus has been shown to affect various systems of the body, including the visual system. The Neuro Visual Center of New York has seen an increase in patients experiencing visual problems related to COVID-19.
Binocular Vision Dysfunction Explained
Binocular vision dysfunction occurs when the eyes do not work together correctly. This can cause problems with depth perception, eye tracking, and eye teaming. Patients with binocular vision dysfunction may experience double vision, headaches, and eye strain. Even symptoms not commonly associated with eyes can occur, such as dizziness, brain fog, and neck pain.
The signs and symptoms of binocular vision dysfunction can be subtle, and patients may not even realize that they have a problem. The Neuro Visual examination is designed to detect even the smallest eye misalignments.
