For some, headaches and dizziness have become an unfortunate part of daily life. Orginating from the forehead, behind the eyes and the temples, these headaches can be pulsating, painful and persistent. Many patients initially think this is sinus-related and take medication to treat sinus symptoms, with no apparent relief. Some of these medications can also have side effects that are unpleasant.
When you suffer from recurring migraines and dizziness, it may be time to seek out new professional help that is skilled in identifying the sources of such frequent headaches. Many patients of Dr. Cheryl Berger Israeloff at the Neuro Visual Center of New York have experienced dramatic improvement in their overall health and well-being after a proper diagnosis and treatment.
Detecting Minor Eye Misalignments
For individuals who suffer from headaches and dizziness, unexplained migraines may be tied to minor eye misalignments that often go undetected in routine eye exams. Dr. Cheryl Berger Israeloff uses the latest and most effective techniques and equipment to diagnose any eye conditions you have and then prescribe proper treatment. This treatment can include using realigning prismatic lenses. Patients of Dr. Cheryl Berger Israeloff have reported an improvement in eyesight and a reduction in headaches, often immediately after their first office visit. In addition to a decrease in eye strain, they also no longer experience migraines and dizziness.
Optometric Treatment for Migraines
Dr. Cheryl Berger Israeloff specializes in the optometric treatment of headaches and dizziness. At the Neuro Visual Center of New York, we offer comprehensive optometric eye examinations and thorough neurovisual evaluations. Our evaluations include very specialized and unique binocular vision tests for patients suffering from constant headaches.
Specialized Neurovisual Optometry Training
Proper testing is essential for the correct diagnosis of any condition that you have. Dr. Israeloff can assist patients who have previously taken routine eye exams and whose eyesight has been declared to be “fine” by other eye doctors performing standard tests because she has received specialized training. Using precise equipment, Dr. Israeloff performs a series of meticulous tests to check for eye misalignments and conditions that can give rise to painful headaches, neck and back pain, dizziness, and other symptoms. Dr. Israeloff trained under Dr. Debby Feinberg, a pioneer in neurovisual optometry, at Vision Specialists in Michigan.
Neurovisual optometry focuses on both diagnosing and treating binocular vision dysfunction (BVD). BVD can trigger symptoms of headache and dizziness. At the Neuro Visual Center of New York, we specialize in testing for vertical heterophoria, a misalignment of the eyes that can affect vision and cause strain on the eye muscles. Repeated eye strain also creates persistent neck and back pain, migraines, and dizziness.
