Our comfort filters have been developed to have a specific absorption of certain part of the spectrum. This have been proven to be effective for patients with different kind of neuro visual problems. The leading hypothesis is that the brain’s ability to filter information has deteriorated after an injury or disease. This leads to over stimulation of the brain, leading to different symptoms, such as light sensitivity, balance problems and tinnitus.
Some of the patient groups that can benefit from this kind of filters are:
• Post-concussion syndrome (after concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury – TBI)
• Brain fatigue
When trying these filters, it’s important to keep in mind that visual comfort is more interesting than visual quality. You should always ask yourself or the patient “how does it feel with this filter?” rather than “How do you see with this filter?”
Our comfort filters exist in three different colours and each colour in three different light transmission levels; Light, Medium and Dark. All three colours are used by Eye Care Practitioners for patients experiencing visual stress after head injury to relieve symptoms.
ML41 - A pink lens that absorbs some of the blue light but also a bit of the green. The greatest absorption lies in the boundary between blue and green. There is a proven effect at benign essential blefarospasm (BEB), both in terms of photosensitivity and blink frequency. Many people perceive the filter as generally comfortable and many experiences a relief in migraines. Colour: Pink.
Emerald - A green lens that absorbs the short-waved blue light as well as the yellow light. The main focus on the transmission is on long-wave blue light and green light. Colour: Green.
Sapphire - A blue lens that absorbs yellow light. The main focus on the transmission is on blue light. Colour: Blue.
