sufferers and long term, diabetics may develop new vessels in the
retina (diabetic retinopathy), which, with a tendency to leak, can
lead to visual impairment.
Blue light entering the eye is poorly absorbed by the damaged retina
and consequently scatters internally, causing glare and visual haze.
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 diabetic retinopathy, the complete elimination of
high frequency blue light waves, stops the excessive glare &
haze, while the addition of a high contrast pigment often significantly
increases colour definition and contrast.
filters exceed the recommendations made by Retina International
& 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
