Visual Stress Programme

Our VISUAL STRESS treatment is offered as a monitored course of eye care. There is no ‘cure’ for Visual Stress and once the first pair of glasses has been prescribed the clinical investigation and support must be continued.

The initial prescription may need to be adjusted frequently as the eyes develop and adjust. Often prism is required to enable the eyes to work together correctly but may be removed later when reading improves. It is essential that this is monitored regularly by the qualified Visual Stress Optometrist.

The Visual Stress Treatment Programme is a minimum term of 18 months and visits to see the opticians are required every 3 months or as indicated by the optometrist.
