People with AMD (Age related Macula Degeneration) very often have difficul-ties in getting everyday optics that really help them see significantly better. Normally they are offered standard optics which might help a bit, but an eye with AMD needs more than just the power correction. There are more that could be added.
Therefore we offer AMD Comfort.
AMD Comfort offers people who suffer from AMD a vast improvement to their sight along with enhanced visual comfort. It is easy to understand, easy to try and last but not least, easy to prescribe and order.
AMD-COMFORT – A SPECIAL KIND OF LENS
AMD Comfort is a specially developed ophthalmic lens for people suffering from AMD. For those affected by this condition, AMD Comfort offers a vast improvement to their sight along with enhanced visual Comfort.
AMD Comfort achieves these improvements through 4 main features:
The specially developed comfort filter offers the eyes the best possible protection against aggressive UV light, while reducing their sensitivity to bright daylight or sunlight. The comfort filter substantially reduced the blue components of the visible light, yet the rest of the spectrum is retained which helps to ensure natural colour vision.
AMD lenses provides a magnification that make more of the retina involved in the seeing process. The magnification is enough to make a difference for the wearer, but not so big that that field of vision is reduced.
The magnification is achieved with a special grinding technic, which makes the lens more curved and a bit thicker.
There are 2 magnifications available, AMD-I and AMD-II. AMD-I provides a balance between cosmetically appearance and magnification, whilst AMD-II provides more magnification but where the lens is thicker.
AMD-I means a magnification around 3% and AMD-II means a magnification of about 6 %. The exact magnification may vary up and down depending on the prescription and the lens selection.
Antireflex treatment is standard in AMD Comfort, improving comfort and decreasing glare.
When a person does not see normal, the first thing to check is if it is possible to correct with optics of some kind. The same applies for AMD patients; the first thing that should be done is to find out which prescription they need. Therefore all AMD Comfort lenses are specially made for each person with individual correction to make them as optimal as possible.
