Motion Sickness

carsick white finalDo you get a headache, stomach distress, or nausea as a passenger in a car? Is it worse when you read, play games, or try to watch a movie in the car? Motion sickness is caused by a miscommunication between the eyes and the body. A mismatch in information between the central and peripheral vision systems, along with eye focusing (looking from near to far) can attribute to the feelings of motion sickness. This is known as See-Sick-Syndrome.

Visual conflicts can be greatly reduced with a prescription for ambient prism glasses and/or vision therapy to retrain the vision-brain connection. If you are suffering from motion sickness schedule a comprehensive vision exam with Dr. Cummings to determine if the use of prism glasses or vision therapy can help reduce your symptoms.
