X-rays showed that I have an ‘S’ curved spine. I tend to put more weight on my left side and raise my right shoulder. Therefore my left hip is higher than my right. I often tilt my head. I had pressure on the top and back of my head causing headaches. Prism glasses have corrected all of these by balancing both sides. Somehow they have changed my posture and my gait for the better. The leg tremors have eased, allowing a longer stand. You can read of my experience in the Forum under the 3 different topics of prism glasses.
