Barberini Eyewear to Fund Foundation for Dry Eye Research

An agreement signed between Barberini Eyewear and Fondazione Banca degli Occhi del Veneto Onlus to support a study that the Foundation will conduct on the use of optical glass ophthalmic lenses with selective action against Infrared Radiation, verifying their protective effectiveness in patients affected by dry eyes. “Dry eye is a diffuse condition, which may be present alone or associated with other favourable ocular and systemic conditions. This agreement aims to evaluate the effect of the use of optical glass ophthalmic lenses, normal or graduated, by patients with moderate dry eyes”, says the Medical Director of Fondazione Banca degli Occhi del Veneto Onlus, Dr. Diego Ponzin. This is the aim of the agreement that will see Barberini participate in and fund the research laboratories of the Foundation.

Founded 30 years ago as a reference centre for corneal transplants in the Veneto region and now also in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, The Banca degli Occhi Foundation is the first Eye Bank in Europe for the number of selected and distributed tissues and the first born in Italy.

The product being analysed in this particular context is “Platinum GlassTM”. This glass offers maximum protection from UV rays, protecting up to 400 nm (UV400); however, the most interesting aspect, which the study will try to test, is the effectiveness of protection from Infrared Rays (radiation that tends to warm the eye and its contour) which aims to prevent the premature aging of tissues.
