Do you have consistent headaches, eyestrain, neck pain, dry eye, or tired eyes from computer use? Neurolens may be the answer!

You could be suffering from Computer Vision Syndrome!

Eye Alignment at all distances is essential for comfortable vision. A lack of alignment between your eyes can cause unwanted stress on your visual system and many times results in symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome. The last decade has seen a dramatic shift in how we use our vision requiring us to see up close frequently.

We have a new testing device called SightSync. If it detects an imbalance in your vision, our eye doctor is the only one in St Louis who can prescribe a new Opti-Medical lens that includes your own custom compensation curve as measured by SightSync.

If you experience any symptoms of headaches, stiffness or pain in neck, discomfort in computer use, tired eyes, dry eye sensation, light sensitivity, or dizziness, then you may be an ideal candidate for Neurolenses.

Glass Lenses. Whats old is new again!

Some of you may remember wearing glass prescription lenses years ago. In fact at one time you could only buy glass lenses. Nothing else was available! Several decades ago different forms of plastic lenses became available and with advances in technology such as Cr-39, Polycarbonate, and high index lenses like 1.60, 1.67, 1.70 and 1.74 are now the norm. In fact we have the opposite problem, prescription glass lenses are much harder to find. Some offices do not even use them! These new advances have allowed an amazing amount of excellent solutions for patients. Thinner, flatter, lighter and impact resistance allow for a huge array of solutions for frames and eyewear needs. The issue tho is these lenses in some ways are much better and in others not as good as glass. Glass Lens offer the absolute best optics of any material. Ray-Ban, Persol, and many premium sunglass companies still use glass lenses because it offers the clearest vision possible with amazing scratch resistance. The downside is they are a bit heavier and can break or crack if dropped.
