Glasses for Macular Degeneration

There are no glasses that can help sufferers of macular degenerative disease, although a strong reading lens, often called a page reader can help you see with your peripheral vision. However, there are glasses for macular degeneration that may help prevent the disease. These glasses for macular degeneration use the Alta Eficacia Method of filtering certain frequencies of light that are thought to promote macular degenerative disease.

Glasses for Macular Degeneration

There is a type of lens that is called glasses for macular degeneration. They are the lenses that were first developed by Celia Sแnchez-Ramos.

Celia Sแnchez-Ramos is a specialist in the field of Vision Sciences at the University of Madrid. She was awarded a prize for the invention of these glasses for macular degeneration or lenses in 2009 for best inventor. It is said that these yellow lenses are a break-through in the world of macular degeneration.

In June 2006, Celia Sanchez-Ramonos set up a company called Alta Eficacia Tecnologia S.L. in order to develop and market the yellow lenses which could provide better eyesight for sufferers of Age-related macular degeneration, which can be shortened to ARMD or just AMD.

AMD is the leading cause of blindness, especially age-related blindness in the Western world now that cataracts can be removed quite easily in a simple operation. The yellow lenses developed by Celia Sanchez-Ramonos filter out the blue and violet light which is thought to be chiefly responsible for the development of AMD.

These lenses or glasses for macular degeneration are said to use the Alta Eficacia Method, which is the use of a special filter to block the blue and violet visual spectrum lights that are thought to be chiefly responsible for causing macular degeneration.

The lenses are called "Therapeutic Contact Lens for Pseudophakic Eyes", which translates into eyes suffering from neurodegeneration, which in turn is the cause of macular degeneration.

The yellow colour of the lens has little to no effect on the wearer's vision and neither does it affect the way the wearer's eyes are perceived by a second party according to research involving 2,000 people. In fact, in addition to providing protection from AMD, these glasses for macular degeneration also improved perception of contrast at night or in bad light.

As you will no doubt understand, these macular degeneration glasses are still very new, but there are significant trials being held in over 23 hospitals. If you would like to know more, you will have to ask your doctor or keep searching the Internet on a regular basis.

If the trials work out as hoped and predicted these glasses for macular degeneration will help prevent AMD in people who are most at risk such as those who have a family history of age-related macular degeneration.. About 12% of people get some degree of AMD in old age, but the percentage jumps to 50% if there is a family history

Celia Sแnchez-Ramos' glasses for macular degeneration could be a very welcome source of hope for those who are extremely worried that they will lose their sight when they are at one of the most vulnerable times of their lives.
