Binocular Vision Dysfunction, or BVD, is a serious eye disorder in which one eye sees the world differently than the other eye. The resulting incompatibility between both eyes can cause double vision or blurry vision, and trying to compensate for the disorder can result in headaches, dizziness, trouble reading and concentration, learning disorders, anxiety and general inability to use your eyes as they are intended. If you have noticed any of these symptoms and suspect you may have BVD, you should get checked out immediately by our optometrists in Mascoutah.
Talk to Your Doctor About Double Vision and Vertigo
Suffering from BVD means your life is harder to live, plain and simple, and why should you have to put up with that? If you are experiencing eye trouble that is compromising your standard of living, talk to your Mascoutah eye doctor about double vision and vertigo today.
In a nutshell, BVD is a condition in which your eyes are not aligned to one another, which results most commonly in double vision and vertigo. Some signs that you might be experiencing this disorder include:
- Multiple trips to eye specialists without any noticeable improvement in your condition
- Concussion or traumatic brain injury, following which these symptoms appeared
- ADHD, dyslexia or other learning disabilities which may indicate the presence of BVD
- Headaches, dizziness or anxiety over short or extended periods of time
Our eye doctor in Mascoutah can help you overcome the symptoms of BVD by fist conducting a comprehensive exam to assess your overall vision and then prescribe you a treatment that will correct the problem. In addition to treating BVD, we also can help if you suffer from other issues such as dry eye syndrome, macular degeneration, astigmatism, farsightedness and diabetic retinopathy. Our eye doctor can also help you address eye infections or other temporary vision problems.
Prisms and Lenses to Treat Your Eye Care Problems
Because the problem with BVD is that your eyes are not in line with one another, many doctors take the eye care approach of creating prisms in glasses or lenses, through which the image your eye sees will be bent, creating an effect of alignment between both eyes. When properly adjusted and fitted, prisms can effectively displace the image that one eye sees so that it matches up perfectly with the other eye and you no longer suffer from double vision or the other issues of BVD. If you believe this eye care treatment might be helpful to you, ask us about it today.
