Eyeglasses have helped many patients achieve better vision, but they can cause a common problem known as aniseikonia. At Eyes for Wellness in Indianapolis IN, we treat several eye conditions and situations, including aniseikonia. Learn more about the condition below.

What is Aniseikonia?

Traditional glasses cause aniseikonia which means unequal images. There are two types; static and dynamic. Static aniseikonia causes the glasses to make images appear different sizes for each eye. Dynamic is very similar to static, but with motion. If you have this condition, tasks are generally easier to perform with only one eye open. Aniseikonia can also be caused by astigmatism differences or photoreceptor density. Refractive errors can also cause aniseikonia.

What are the Symptoms of Aniseikonia?

There are some unpleasant symptoms of aniseikonia, which include:

  • Eyestrain
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Nausea and dizziness
  • Inability to detect 3-d images

The symptoms are nothing to panic about, but you should seek treatment from our team as soon as you notice anything out of the ordinary. Our eye doctor team can pinpoint the causes of your symptoms and determine if aniseikonia is the culprit.

How is Aniseikonia Treated?

An optometrist from our professional team will complete a thorough eye exam to determine whether or not you are experiencing aniseikonia. We may recommend special contact lenses or glasses to correct your vision. These recommendations will be made based on your medical needs and lifestyle.
