Binocular Vision Dysfunction

Binocular Vision Dysfunction, or BVD, is a serious eye disorder in which the two eyes are misaligned, sending two very different images to the brain.

BVD is caused when the brain struggles to merge these two varying images into one clear and 3D image of the world and often results in double vision or blurry vision, eye strain, headaches, dizziness, trouble reading and concentration, learning disorders and anxiety

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 San Francisco.

Prisms and Lenses to Treat Your Eye Care Problems

Take the Adult BVD Test
Take the Pediatric BVD Test

Our eye doctor in San Francisco 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.

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.
