While some people have chronic conditions for which they’ll have to take medication for the rest of their lives, this isn’t the case for every condition. In fact, it’s not unusual for people who suffer frequent, ongoing headaches and dizziness to be taking prescriptions that aren’t really helping.
In cases such as these, it may be an undiagnosed binocular vision problem such as binocular vision dysfunction (BVD) that’s causing these symptoms and others the patient may not even be aware of. Imagine the surprise of Alex H., a patient at the Neuro Visual Center of New York, when she found this was the case for her.
Aligning Glasses to the Rescue
“Before I got these glasses, I’d been on medicine my whole life and just always assumed that I would be on medicine the rest of my life as well in order to prevent the headaches that I was experiencing every day. And I never thought that there would be a solution for me. I didn’t even realize I was having other symptoms as well. I had 20/20 vision and I could read fine and I could drive, but then I realized after talking with Dr. Cheryl that I couldn’t actually read fine, that the words were blurring together and I was just so used to compensating for it that I was totally unaware of it.
“I was also getting dizzy all the time, but it wasn’t interfering with my everyday so I didn’t know that it was abnormal. And so coming here, I realized how much bigger of an issue it is and how incredible it is that I have the opportunity to go off medicine and have a solution and have an actual issue instead of being like, well, I’m just wired backwards. Now I have a concrete issue and solution.”
