The tints used in normal sunglasses dim the complete colour spectrum of light and are not beneficial in many eye conditions. We stock a range of sun filters designed to be worn over your existing spectacles which block only specific parts of the colour spectra giving improved visual comfort, better sharpness and enhanced contrast. This is particularly beneficial to people with a visual impairment such as Macula Degeneration, Cataract, Corneal Ulcers, Diabetic Retinopathy and Retinitis Pigmentosa.
The following filters may be helpful for specific eye problems:-
- Macular Degeneration – yellow through to orange
- Glaucoma & Cataract – orange through to red
- Diabetic Retinopathy – red
- Photophobia (light sensitivity) red through to dark red
Selecting the most effective filter is a subjective process and depends on personal preferences and specific requirements. We would therefore recommend coming to the Resource Centre to try our extensive range of filters.
We stock a range of Optima fit-over anti glare shields and filter spectacles, ranging from £8.50 to £20.
These filters provide excellent glare protection, with their large side shields and top lip. With 100% UV protection and an extremely comfortable colour, they cut down glare, sharpen focus and provide natural colour rendition.
