Is Neurolens Covered by Insurance?

Book Your Appointment

Neurolens are specialty lenses that can help with a vision-related problem known as binocular vision dysfunction. If you experience headaches, eye strain, or neck pain or have trouble concentrating, an eye exam can help our eye doctors determine if Neurolens can improve your symptoms. 

Insurance coverage for Neurolens depends on your specific benefits plan. Contact your insurance provider to see what they cover. If your vision benefits do not cover the cost of Neurolens, you may be able to use your personal spending account (PSA) or health savings account (HSA) to help cover the price, if you have one.

What Is Neurolens?

Neurolens is an innovative eyewear technology that aims to alleviate symptoms like headaches, neck pain, and digital eye strain caused by the extended use of digital devices. Unlike traditional lenses that primarily correct your vision, Neurolenses address eye misalignment and help improve the connection between the eyes and the brain to enhance visual comfort. 

What Is Eye Misalignment?

Binocular vision dysfunction, or eye misalignment, is when the eyes have trouble working together as a team. When we look at an object, our eyes should be aligned and focused on the same point. However, in binocular vision dysfunction, there may be issues with eye alignment, coordination, or focusing, causing overstimulation of the trigeminal nerve, the largest and most complex nerve connected to the brain and the eyes. 

Eye misalignment can lead to trigeminal dysphoria and associated discomforting symptoms, including:

  • Dry eyes
  • Eye fatigue and strain
  • Headaches
  • Neck tension
  • Shoulder pain
  • Dizziness or nausea
  • Difficulty reading or concentrating

How Do Neurolenses Work?

With misalignment, your eyes do not work together, and one eye may need to work harder than the other, resulting in visual stress. Neurolenses have contoured prism technology, which helps to realign the eyes and reduce stimulation on the trigeminal nerve and strain on the eye muscles. 

Realignment helps create a more harmonious connection between the eyes and the brain, reducing the effort required to maintain clear vision. By incorporating prism elements into the lenses, Neurolens optimizes how light enters the eyes, allowing for more comfortable and relaxed vision, especially during extended periods of screen use.

Who Is Neurolens For?

Neurolenses can help anyone experiencing discomfort or strain related to digital eye strain. In the digital era, where screens dominate our daily lives, many individuals experience discomfort and digital eye strain. 

Professionals who spend extensive hours on computers, students engrossed in online learning, and individuals who use digital devices can all benefit from Neurolens technology.

The lenses are particularly beneficial for those who experience symptoms such as chronic headaches and neck pain. The innovative design and customizable lenses consider the varying degrees of misalignment in the eyes, providing a personalized solution.

Eye Assessment for Neurolens

Our eye doctors can assess your vision and take accurate measurements of your eye misalignment to determine if you will benefit from Neurolens. They will use these measurements to determine the difference between your eye’s position and where it should be to create customized Neurolens for your eyewear. 

How Much Do Neurolenses Cost? 

Cost is always an essential factor when choosing eyewear. Prices can vary depending on factors like your prescription level or frames. Neurolenses can be a significant investment but offer improved visual comfort and relief from eye misalignment symptoms. 

Your insurance may cover the cost of Nuerolenses, but every insurance plan is different. If you are interested in Neurolens, call your insurance provider to determine the extent of your coverage and any potential reimbursement options.

Neurolens can cater to your specific eye alignment needs to improve vision and comfort. If you are experiencing symptoms of eye misalignment or digital eye strain, book an appointment with Eye Care Group to learn more about customized Neurolenses.
