Prescribing For Your Visual Needs
Behavioral optometry is the understanding balance between
the brain and the eyes. The eyes send
our visual input to the brain, but it’s in the brain where vision and perception
is calculated and translated.
When our eyes work together, in harmony with each other, the
brain receives a comfortable overlapping of the two images and thus an
accurate, binocular view of our world is obtained. When the two eyes fight with
each other, the cause of uncomfortable viewing becomes apparent. This “strain” is
especially noted when performing prolonged amounts of concentrated detail work.
Symptoms of “eye strain” may include… headaches, light
sensitivity, fluctuation in vision, double vision, slow reading, poor comprehension,
decreased reading time, dry eyes, tired eyes, red eyes, head tilts, and increased rubbing of eyes.
In today’s world we put significant demands on our eyes that
have never existed before. With our ever increasing use of computers and cell
phones, the demand for our eyes to keep consistent focus at different distances
is becoming an epidemic. Now with the increase use of smart phones and tablet
computers, the demands will become even greater. In just a few generations we have created new
environments for our eyes to work.
