VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron DIFFERENT PRESCRIPTIONS FOR EACH EYE The term "aniseikonia" refers to a condition in which there is an excessive difference in the prescription for each eye. This difference in perceived image size gives rise to unequal magnification, which can produce such symptoms as headache, dizziness, disorientation, and excessive eye strain. While static aniseikonia" is associated with glasses making the same image appear to be a different size to each eye, "dynamic aniseikonia" occurs with motion. As far as treatment is concerned, Shaw lenses are designed with sophisticated algorithms that model the rotation of the eye in order to predict and prevent the distortions created by traditional lenses. This system accommodates the way both eyes work together, to solve for both dynamic and static aniseikonia. Aniseikonia makes the brain work harder when reading. This can be a big problem for children who wear glasses. Shaw lenses are particularly effective in pediatric optometric care. When you need to schedule an eye exam, please contact SKOWRON EYE CARE.
