When the eyes aren’t in sync, the brain must do the work to compensate for the misalignment. The additional work puts stress on the trigeminal nerve – the largest nerve in the brain and the one responsible for the majority of head and neck sensations.
Why am I Experiencing Symptoms?
Eye Misalignment & Trigeminal Dysphoria
- When the eyes are out of sync, or misaligned, it puts higher demand on the visual system which must work constantly to compensate for the misalignment.
- This can lead to overstimulation of the trigeminal nerve – the largest and most complex nerve connected to the brain, and the one responsible for sending sensations to the head, eyes and shoulders – resulting in visually induced Trigeminal Dysphoria.
