Have you been struggling with headache pain and migraines with little or no relief from your treatment? Having constant or frequent head pain can prevent you from living your life to the fullest. Our patients have been previously diagnosed with severe muscle tension headaches, migraines, atypical migraines, sinus problems and have tried to get help. When you have attempted countless treatments, medications, and seen multiple doctors and are still overwhelmed and looking for headache relief, you may actually be suffering from Binocular Vision Dysfunction.
Binocular Vision Dysfunction & Headaches
Binocular Vision Dysfunction is caused when your eyes are misaligned, causing the eye muscles to overwork and strain to correct this vision impairment. When your eyes are even subtly misaligned, your body is struggling to compensate, which results in painful headaches which are often confused with:
- Migraines: Migraine pain can be debilitating and is categorized by severe pain, light and sound sensitivity, as well as nausea. When you suffer from vision misalignment, your eye muscles are strained and struggle to see clearly throughout the day. The pain from your eye muscles, as they constantly battle to keep your vision in alignment may cause the same discomfort as migraines.
- Atypical Migraines: Usually, a migraine provides its sufferer with a visual signal alerting them to the oncoming discomfort, while atypical migraines frequently start with the throbbing head pain. Your atypical migraine symptoms may actually be the result of a vision misalignment. By treating the vision alignment, we can provide you with the relief you need.
- Sinus Headaches: With the overuse and overexertion of your eye muscles, attempting to realign your eyesight can cause the same discomfort and pain as a sinus headache. By treating the vision misalignment, we relieve the constant pressure within your face and provide you with long term sinus headache relief.
- Muscle Tension Headaches: Your eye muscles are being constantly strained as your eyes attempt to realign themselves. This relentless stress and overuse of your eye muscles feels the same as a muscle tension headache to many of our patients. By eliminating this constant overuse of your eye muscles, we provide you with muscle tension headache relief.
At Vision Specialists of Michigan, we make our treatment easy for our patients. Our compassionate doctors will complete a thorough NeuroVisual Examination to determine the extent of your vision misalignment and to prescribe you with our specialized aligning lenses. Unlike your standard eyeglass prescription, our lenses treat your Binocular Vision Dysfunction, along with any additional vision impairments, to allow your eyes to work together. Without the constant struggle to realign vision, your eye muscles are able to relax, releasing the tension and providing you with headache pain relief.
