Binocular Vision Dysfunction in Peoria & Washington, IL

Healthy Vision Requires Teamwork

Binocular vision describes how eyes work as a team. Eye teaming can be like juggling. Both balls must match the same speed and take cues from the other ball’s movement or risk falling out of step. Of course, you can still juggle one ball, but it doesn’t look as cool.

When your eyes stop working together (binocular vision dysfunction), it can impact the quality of your sight. Vision therapy can help train your eyes to work simultaneously and support healthy vision.

Contact Vision Care Center today to see how we can help.

Problems Caused by Eye Misalignment

Binocular vision helps us see the world in 3D. But when our eyes stop working together, eye misalignment (binocular vision dysfunction) can cause eye strain, double vision, or poor depth perception.

Eye misalignment often develops in childhood. However, issues may not be detected until adulthood or develop due to health conditions, such as brain injuries, diabetes, or thyroid disease (Graves’ disease).

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is a personalized program designed to help restore or improve vision quality. A program focused on correcting binocular vision dysfunction may use a series of vision exercises or specialty lenses to help correct eye alignment conditions like amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eyes). 

Receiving support can offer relief from eye discomfort symptoms, so you can experience healthy, comfortable vision. Vision Care Center offers vision therapy programs for adults and children.

Dr. Cundiff examines vision therapy cases for our patients.


Your vision needs to work harder to compensate for eye misalignment, placing pressure on the trigeminal nerve. It’s one of the most complex nerves in your brain, and the pathway vision travels from the eyes to the brain. Additional pressure can cause uncomfortable symptoms, including eye strain, headaches, dry eye, and neck or shoulder pain.

Neurolens uses contoured prisms in prescription lenses. The prisms help correct eye alignment and relieve symptoms caused by increased trigeminal nerve pressure.

Our BVD Questionnaire & Traumatic Brain Injury

Vertical heterophoria, a condition characterized by a misalignment of the eyes, is a common occurrence following a concussion or other brain injury. A specialized type of examination is required to diagnose this condition accurately. 

We offer a comprehensive binocular vision dysfunction questionnaire that you can fill out to get started.

You will be in good hands with our experienced team. Dr. Fitch examines traumatic brain injury cases, while Dr. Cundiff focuses on vision therapy cases.
