Blue light filtering NOT recommended for inplanted lenses - Yay!!

    A review just published yesterday, Feb. 21, 2019, of 51 studies across 17 countries attempting meta-analysis could not come to a conclusion on the advisability of using blue light filtering implanted lenses, and thus recommended against their use, stating further that designing a proper study on this subject will probably be so expensive that it may never be done.

    Thankfully, there was an inability, due to many factors, to combine data across the studies; plus, as usual, the analysis found many deficiencies in the subject studies including insufficient quantifying if data. Only 2 of the 51 studies were even listed on a clinical trial registry. A glaring conclusion of this study was that, at least for this subject, there was a disastrous waste of money on the subject trials.

    The study results were summarized as:

    "Conclusions and Relevance Using blue light–filtering IOLs to impart benefits to the macula is currently not supported by the best available clinical research evidence, and it is important that clinicians are mindful of this evidence limitation when adopting these devices in clinical practice."

    So it seems IOL recipients may be spared having the beneficial effect of the sun's blue spectrum blocked if their surgeons stay up to date on the latest recommendations.
