Driving

driving 1280x480

Whether it’s high performance around a track at 180mph or taking your family on a 3 hour trip, the fact is that you need your vision to arrive safely.  Everyone knows that you need to see clearly, but the other visual skills are often overlooked. These are the things that are important for keeping drivers from getting fatigued, double vision, blurry vision, and being able to stay focused on the road. 

Double/Blurry

Many drivers will experience times where the road will start to go slightly double or blurry.  This is often because their eyes have started to fall out of alignment. This is most often because the brain is not controlling the alignment accurately.  This is often easily remedied with a specialty glasses prescription (more than just for clarity), or with vision therapy to help the brain learn to use the eyes together more efficiently.

Fatigue

Fatigue is a common problem when driving for long periods of time.  If your eyes struggle to work together, the extra energy your brain has to spend on trying to correct this will make you fatigued.  This is similar to how poor wheel alignment will kill your fuel economy! So make sure that your eyes are working together properly, and avoid fatigue behind the wheel

Dear Valued Patient,

At Opto-mization NeuroVisual Performance, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you. Opto-mization NeuroVisual Performance Team
