Binocular Vision Dysfunction, or BVD, is a serious eye disorder in which one eye sees the world differently than the other eye. The resulting incompatibility between both eyes can cause double vision or blurry vision, and trying to compensate for the disorder can result in headaches, dizziness, trouble reading and concentration, learning disorders, anxiety and general inability to use your eyes as they are intended. If you have noticed any of these symptoms and suspect you may have BVD, you should get checked out immediately by our optometrists in Hasbrouck Heights.

Talk to Your Doctor About Double Vision and Vertigo

Suffering from BVD means your life is harder to live, plain and simple, and why should you have to put up with that? If you are experiencing eye trouble that is compromising your standard of living, talk to your Hasbrouck Heights eye doctor about double vision and vertigo today.

In a nutshell, BVD is a condition in which your eyes are not aligned to one another, which results most commonly in double vision and vertigo. Some signs that you might be experiencing this disorder include:

  • Multiple trips to eye specialists without any noticeable improvement in your condition
  • Concussion or traumatic brain injury, following which these symptoms appeared
  • ADHD, dyslexia or other learning disabilities which may indicate the presence of BVD
  • Headaches, dizziness or anxiety over short or extended periods of time

Our eye doctor in Hasbrouck Heights can help you overcome the symptoms of BVD by fist conducting a comprehensive exam to assess your overall vision and then prescribe you a treatment that will correct the problem. In addition to treating BVD, we also can help if you suffer from other issues such as dry eye syndrome, macular degeneration, astigmatism, farsightedness and diabetic retinopathy. Our eye doctor can also help you address eye infections or other temporary vision problems.

Prisms and Lenses to Treat Your Eye Care Problems

Because the problem with BVD is that your eyes are not in line with one another, many doctors take the eye care approach of creating prisms in glasses or lenses, through which the image your eye sees will be bent, creating an effect of alignment between both eyes. When properly adjusted and fitted, prisms can effectively displace the image that one eye sees so that it matches up perfectly with the other eye and you no longer suffer from double vision or the other issues of BVD. If you believe this eye care treatment might be helpful to you, ask us about it today.

Headaches/Dizziness Questionnaire


I came in with constant headaches, dry eyes and anxiety. I didn’t realize anxiety had anything to do with my vision! My balance was also a little off. After seeing Dr. Aversa, he was able to help with everything! Never thought it would help my anxiety but it did! I feel better than ever! I can see, I can read, no more headaches, no more dizziness and my eyes aren’t as dry. I am very thankful to Dr. Aversa and his staff for their help with my health. They truly care. Thank you.

Before I changed my glasses I would get frequent headaches and motion sickness. My anxiety also used to be very high and hard to control. Since having changed my glasses to correct the imbalance with my eye muscles, I have seen such an improvement! My motion sickness is now more tolerable. My anxiety controllable and I am no longer troubled with constant headaches and neck pain. Overall this solution is best for me!

I had headaches, dizziness, nausea and an overwhelming feeling of anxiety while walking in large department stores. Dr. Aversa changed my eyeglass lenses to a prism to balance by eyes and I was able to see and feel comfortable walking and reading. I feel more relaxed. Thank you Dr. Aversa!

Before I was seen by Dr. aversa, I was having difficulty ready, headaches, dizziness and felt unsteady while walking. He prescribed special lenses that fit my exact needs. It has been a little over a month and I feel a lot better, mainly with reading and unsteadiness while walking. Switching my care to Heights Eye Center has been a beneficial experience for me personally and I look to continue with Dr. Aversa in the future.

I was suffering from unexplained dizziness for months. I finally decided to get my eyes checked out after years of not going to a doctor. Dr. Aversa was so helpful right from the start! After explaining my symptoms he wanted to test me for an eye muscle imbalance. Turns out I had a slight misalignment in my left eye. After getting the prism glasses my dizziness has subsided! I highly recommend this place!
