Unbalanced Eyes and Eyestrain
Some people have eyes that focus differently to
each other. If the eyes cannot work together the world will be perceived
without any depth. If the imbalance is mild the only symptom may
be a tendency to get headaches or eyestrain when reading. This is
basically a sign that the brain is having difficulty merging the
images from the two eyes together, one is sharp the other fuzzy.
The brain tenses the muscles around the outside of the eyes as it
tries to steady them to get better images. The muscles start to
ache after a while. Use Trayner pinhole glasses to encourage the
eyes to work together.
In some cases the imbalance is sufficient for one
eye to be long-sighted and the other short-sighted; The eyes have
become specialised. The brain uses one eye for the distance and
the other for close work. In these cases it is necessary to exercise
the eyes individually. Use Trayner pinhole glasses to help bring
the eyes back into balance.

''I wore them every day for 15 minutes and
after a month, my eyes were stronger and clearer. My eyestrain and
headaches have gone and my eyes feel so rested when I take them
off. I'm hooked and will continue to use them.''
