What is Prism?

Prism is a type of lens that is shaped in a way to bend the light that is coming into the eye.  This means that we can "move" images seen by the eyes/brain to a place that is more comfortable for the eyes to see - allowing for single, clear, and comfortable vision.

Types of Prism

What if I already tried prism before and it "didn't work for me"?

Prescribing prism is an art.


The eyes are dynamic and can fluctuate throughout the day, so sometimes it can take a few attempts to get the prism correct.  If Dr. Theis is concerned that your double vision fluctuates or the prism prescription may need a trial period, she will prescribe a temporary Fresnel prism to figure out what works for you outside the exam room.
