Have you or someone you care about experienced blurred vision or double vision symptoms? Both blurred vision and double vision cause significant discomfort and eye strain. Treatment can vary depending upon the diagnosis. It is very important that you get a proper diagnosis as these symptoms may indicate an eye misalignment.
When the two eyes are unable to align properly without some (usually subconscious) effort, reading can become a challenge. Reading will put a great deal of strain on the eye muscles as they constantly struggle to re-align and eliminate blurriness and double vision. This heavy strain often results in dizziness, headaches and disorientation. Children may complain that it hurts to read.
How a Neurovisual Exam Can Help
During a typical eye exam, your doctor will check your eyes against optical standards used for regular testing. This includes checking your eyesight for 20/20 vision and any astigmatism you may have. This kind of test is suitable for getting standard prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses, but does not test for small eye misalignments.
If you or someone you care about suffers from unexplained blurred vision or double vision symptoms, it is time you come in for a neurovisual exam. Double vision symptoms can occur after a concussion or through eye strain and stress brought about by having a condition like binocular vision dysfunction.
A neuro visual exam differs from regular eye exams in checking for small eye misalignments that a regular eye exam may miss. Using specialized equipment, your doctor will check for these misalignments that lead to conditions such as binocular vision dysfunction. Symptoms of BVD range from discomfort and headaches to nausea and double vision. Symptoms can sometimes be ignored or misunderstood if not properly treated.
