Successfully completed tests were conducted by Fondazione Banca degli Occhi del Veneto Onlus 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, with selective action against Infrared Radiation, by patients with moderate dry eyes”, says the Medical Director of Fondazione Banca degli Occhi del Veneto Onlus, Dr. Diego Ponzin.
The keyword of the product that should be analysed in this particular context is “Platinum Glass™”.
Barberini’s technicians explain that glass is the best way to observe the world and guarantees the best constant vision over time, high resistance to scratches and mechanical stress and minimum environmental impact, being 100% recyclable. This particular type of lens, the Platinum Glass™, aims to ensure maximum protection from UV rays, protecting up to 400 nm (UV400), maximum protection from reflected light, with multilayer anti-reflection and polarized lenses and, within particular lenses, protection from Infrared Rays (radiation that tends to warm the eye and its contour) which aims to prevent the premature aging of tissues. This is obviously the most interesting aspect for this experimentation, which showed significant improvements in patient sensations.
The words of Dr. Ponzin after this first experimentation: “In conclusion, the data show that the sun filters used can improve the subjective symptoms of patients with dry eyes and may promote healing of the ocular surface in some subjects treated with tear substitutes.”
