are where the crystalline lens within the eye becomes cloudy, so
preventing light from reaching the retina. Cataracts not only reduces
vision and colour definition, but also scatters light, resulting
in severe glare.
After cataract surgery, the absence of the crystalline lens means
the retina is no longer protected from UV and high energy visible
Can Medi-View Filters do to Help?
special combination of blue-bloc and high contrast pigments is used
to create Medi-View filters.
For people with cataracts, the complete elimination of high frequency
blue light waves, stops the excessive glare & haze, while the
addition of a high contrast pigment increases colour definition
Once the cataracts are removed, protecting the retina from exposure
to UV and high energy visible blue light is particularly important,
to reduce the risk of Macular Disease (AMD).
Medi-View filters exceed the recommendations made by Retina
International (Retina International) and block 100% UVA/UVB
and all blue light.
makes Medi-View filters better than regular sunglasses or photochromics?
sunglasses and photochromic lenses:
• do not eliminate blue light or therefore the cause of glare
for those with degenerative retinal disorders.
• reduce the transmission of all light waves across the spectrum
succeeding in making things simply ‘too dark’ while
still allowing through light that is problematic
