What are Prism Glasses?

Microprism lenses and prism are uniquely designed, prescribed and manufactured to refract light in a specific way that guarantees that light enters your eyes appropriately, as well as reengage and redirect eye muscles to work correctly, to change eye shape and vision.

The prism is derived, prescribed and located in a unique location that not only helps support the eyes to improve vision at the time, but also acts as an eye gym to encourage eye muscle change over time.

Prism lenses are a technological advance in optometry and are used in a unique way in Quantum Photo-Somatics. Opening the discipline of optometry to the quantum field dramatically increases the possibilities and solutions that optometry can provide by engaging feedback and support from the rest of the body, not just the eyes. Couple this with the scientifically proven theory of neuroplasticity and things really get interesting. Prism focussed light has a positive flow on effect to the whole mind and body.

Prism Glasses Benefits:

Better, improved, realigned vision

Act as eye gym whilst wearing to improve vision over time

Allow free flow of visual information, close, intermediate and distance

Comfortable and easeful

Reduced stress on eyes and body

Improved performance and energy

Prism Glasses FAQs

How do prism glasses work?

Prism glasses work by shifting the image position to assist in binocular vision. This correction helps each eye to work together more effectively, reducing or eliminating double vision.

Who needs prism glasses?

Prism glasses are typically prescribed for individuals who have conditions like strabismus (crossed eyes), diplopia (double vision), or other issues related to eye alignment and coordination. They are crucial for those who cannot naturally align their eyes.

Can prism glasses be used for driving?

Yes, prism glasses can be used for driving and other daily activities, especially for those who experience double vision, as they help in correcting the visual alignment, making it safer and more comfortable to perform these tasks.

Are prism glasses noticeable?

Prism glasses look very similar to regular glasses. The prismatic effect is achieved within the lens itself, so it’s not generally noticeable to others.

How are prism glasses different from regular glasses?

Unlike regular glasses, which correct refractive errors like nearsightedness or farsightedness, prism glasses correct binocular vision problems by adjusting the light path to help the eyes work together.

Can children wear prism glasses?

Yes, children can wear prism glasses if they have been diagnosed with binocular vision problems. These glasses can significantly improve their quality of life by enhancing their ability to see clearly and correctly.

How do I know if I need prism glasses?

If you experience symptoms like double vision, headaches, or eye strain, you might benefit from prism glasses. An optometrist in Melbourne can conduct a comprehensive eye exam to determine if these glasses are suitable for you.

Can prism lenses be added to any frame?

In many cases, prism lenses can be incorporated into existing eyeglass frames. However, some frames may not be suitable depending on the amount of prism needed. It’s best to consult with an optometrist for appropriate recommendations.

How long does it take to adjust to wearing prism glasses?

Adjustment periods can vary. Some individuals may adapt quickly within a few days, while others might take a few weeks to get used to the new visual perspective.

How much do prism glasses cost?

The cost of prism glasses can vary based on the complexity of the prescription and the chosen frames. They are generally more expensive than standard eyeglasses due to the customisation required in the lenses.

100-Day Perfect
Prescription Guarantee

Quantum Photo-Somatics is a dynamic process, activating the system to begin rearranging and realigning itself to a state of ease. On average, follow-up consultations resulting in a change of prescription occur on a 6-monthly basis. In most cases this is a decrease of prescription, allowing the system to continue moving forward. Where a prescription has increased, it is an indicator that more support is required at that moment, and will likely come down when conditions change. 

However, if your new lenses aren’t delivering the comfort or improvement you expected within 100 days, we’re here for you. We’ll re-evaluate your eyes and make any adjustments that are required.

In the majority of cases, we find that a brief 15-30 minute consult suffices to determine the issue, and is usually a matter of further integration, or a slight adjustment to the prescription. These consultations are available free of charge within the 100 day warranty period. 

  • Progress and Support: In some cases, changes occuring as a result of the process may temporarily create some discomfort. Different stages of progress may require varying levels of support in order to reach the desired outcome. 
  • Consultation Fees: A consultation fee will be charged for consultations extending to an hour or more, given the extensive work involved.
  • Discounted Lenses: If the outcome of your consultation is a significant decrease of prescription, new lenses will be prescribed at a 30% discount. Lens remakes under warranty are not honored for obvious improvements.
  • Warranty Lens Remakes: If there’s another significant shift within the next 100 days, lens remakes we will remake your lenses free of charge. 

As the outcomes of this work are highly individual, the application of this policy will have variability depending on the case, and is continually being adapted as the modality itself evolves.

What’s the Science Behind Prism Glasses?

Prism lenses are a technological advance in optometry that involves the theories of Quantum Ophthalmic Optics. Opening the discipline of optometry to the quantum field dramatically increases the possibilities and solutions that optometry can provide. Couple this with the scientifically proven theory of neuroplasticity and things really get interesting.

Neuroplasticity posits that the brain’s cells can be renewed, changed, joined and arranged into new patterns. This malleability of the brain’s neural pathways means that new pathways can be written into the brain with repeated use. This ability allows new skills to be learnt – for example, the eye muscles can learn to see with better vision as they get stronger.

So, how do prism glasses work? Put simply, prism lenses are designed to refract light in a specific way that guarantees that light enters your eye appropriately. The use of Prism lenses for double vision, which is sometimes also referred to as diplopia, is very common, as well as to reengage and redirect eye muscles to work correctly to change eye shape and vision. People can experience diplopia while intoxicated or nauseous, but some experience it constantly due to deterioration, infection, medical condition, or injury.

Persistent diplopia means that light is not hitting both your retinas identically. Your eyes work together to project the same image, but how information on that image is gathered will affect its nature. If light hits one of your eyes in a markedly different manner to the other, your eyes may project the same image twice but just slightly apart.

Double vision can be an ongoing condition with challenges of its own, but left untreated, it can compound your troubles. Untreated diplopia can further strain your eyesight and result in near- or far-sightedness as well as give you regular eye fatigue.

Prism eyeglasses counteract this by redirecting light to the proper spot on both your retinas. By perfectly matching light refraction on both eyes, they ensure that there’s no difference and therefore no chance of seeing the same image twice before you.

Big Results from Professional Prism Lenses

When properly prescribed by our reliable optometrist in Melbourne, prism glasses can eliminate double vision for good. However, just because the science behind them is relatively straightforward doesn’t mean just anyone can sell you a pair! Improper prescriptions will only worsen your vision over time. If you’ve been prescribed and sold the wrong prism glasses, you’ll feel it clearly in the pounding in your head and the nausea in your gut.

In other words, you don’t want these being offered to you by anyone besides professionals! And we want to spare you that trouble here at Microprism Vision.

What is the difference between what you do and others?

We take a unique approach to vision and eye health by holistically and dynamically assessing vision, mind and body as a complete unit, working on conscious and subconscious levels.

Our unique methodology, Quantum (Energy) Photo (Light) Somatics (Body Movement) (QPS) has been developed by Dr Michael Christian. QPS supports Optometry and is an endorsed and accredited field with the IICT (International Institute of Complementary Therapies)

It engages a real time integrative feedback system of many factors, making adjustments, counter checks and further adjustments through the process.

Light uniquely and appropriately refracted through lens and prism combinations support and change factors such as breath, posture, balance, muscles, energy, nerves, emotions, movement and body functions, which in turn aims to positively affect the eyes and vision.

Once we understand the wearers profile, we prescribe balanced, highly customised, activating lens and prism prescriptions. These lenses aim to change the way the wearers eye muscles work while supporting how the brain processes visual information.

Just as you work out your body with weights and movement, the glasses we prescribe act as a personal trainer for your eyes that are designed to work just by wearing them, without the hassle of boring and limited time-consuming eye exercises.

The lenses aim to also encourage improvement of health conditions that are linked to, being caused by or exacerbated by poor vision, while aiming to avoid the usual deterioration of vision commonly experienced by long-term glasses wearers. The eyes affect the mind and body, and the mind and body affect the eyes.Both need optimal support. These links and relationships are thoroughly investigated in depth for each person.

How do lenses and prism encourage positive visual change or improvement?

Just as good air, food and water provides integral fuel for the body, good light, presented correctly, provides integral fuel for vision and mind.

The function of your eyes has a flow on effect to the rest of your mind and body. Just as changing any nerve or muscle group in the body does.

Microprism integrative prescriptions are derived by focusing two eyes together in specific binocular refractive patterns for clear perspective and detail discrimination. In Microprism progressive lens manufacturing, the prism is located in unique non-traditional active locations to ensure clear, open, comfortable and dynamic vision. Microprism directional prisms (up, down, in and out summations) are located differently and affect eye muscles, changing eye shape and location and the perception of objects within a space. The internal shift on eye muscles via the incoming prism re-directed light, effects and brings into alignment and balance, how near, distance and perspective are observed. This ideal state of alignment brings ease to the optical, motor and sensory system and has a positive flow on effect to the rest of the body. Light feeds the whole biophotonic transduction system of the body.
