There are many different reasons that people see double(diplopia). It can occur from natural eye misalignment from birth, diseases such as diabetes, or trauma.
Fortunately, occasional or full-time diplopia can be resolved with prismatic lenses.
Prisms bend light, and this property is used to deflect light to the eye to eliminate the double vision.
Sometimes eye misalignment can be straightened by using the eye muscles.
Even though there may be no diplopia, often times eye fatigue and headaches can occur when trying to keep vision from going double. Prism can also be prescribed for these situations and often results in dramatic relief from these symptoms.
Binocular vision testing is part of a comprehensive eye examination. At Optiexpress we have the experience to make sure that your eyes work together properly.
