After years of in-depth clinical research conducted at neurology centers nationwide, a new link between optometry and neurology has been discovered. Results from a series of clinical studies on headache patients revealed that symptomatic patients shared a common trait: a misalignment in their vision that caused specific symptoms when using digital devices, reading or doing near work. Symptomatic patients studied were found to share a common trait: a misalignment in their vision that was believed to put continual stress on the trigeminal nerve – the largest and most complex nerve connected to the brain, and the one responsible for head, eye and neck sensations. A further review of optometric literature revealed complaints of similar symptoms documented throughout history, predating the use of digital devices. You will gain an understanding of the optical neurological mechanism triggering headaches and how it relates to neck pain/tension and eye fatigue. You will also gain new insights into how to identify and treat patients suffering from a misalignment in their vision.
