Do you suffer from
without much relief?
The doctors at Vision Specialists of Michigan have made pioneering discoveries into the diagnosis and treatment of Vertical Heterophoria and Superior Oblique Palsy, two uncommonly recognized and poorly understood eye misalignment conditions. Those who suffer from Vertical Heterophoria or Superior Oblique Palsy tend to have a small amount of vertical eye misalignment, which the brain corrects by directing the eye muscles to properly reposition the eyes. However, using the eye muscles in this manner overworks them and they become strained and fatigued, causing the many symptoms of Vertical Heterophoria and Superior Oblique Palsy:
The severity and number of symptoms vary from person to person – some people are much more affected than others. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) has been known to cause these symptoms.
The doctors at Vision Specialists of Michigan have developed a very detailed and specialized NeuroVisual Evaluation, which allows for the accurate diagnosis and treatment of Vertical Heterophoria and Superior Oblique Palsy. Using realigning prismatic spectacle lenses, the strain and fatigue within the visual system is reduced or eliminated. Patients notice significant improvement in their symptoms during their first office visit. Improvement continues over the course of several visits as the prismatic prescription is fine-tuned and customized for the individual.
A specialized Questionnaire has been developed by the researchers at Vision Specialists of Michigan to identify those who might be suffering from Vertical Heterophoria or Superior Oblique Palsy. Fill in the Questionnaire and find out if you might benefit from an evaluation at Vision Specialists of Michigan.
