Fundus autofluorescence and retinal sensitivity in fellow eyes of age-related macular degeneration in Japan
TLDR
FAF and microperimetry are useful to assess macular function before development of neovascular AMD or geographic atrophy in Japanese patients, and patchy and focally increased patterns predominated in the abnormal FAF.
The Influence of Blue-Filtering Intraocular Lenses Implant on Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration: A Case–Control Study
TLDR
No correlations could be established between the presence of ablue light filter in the IOL and the occurrence of wet AMD, and AMD patients without blue light-filtering IOL were injected significantly later than patients with an IOL filtering blue light, which contradict the potential clinical benefit of the blue light filter.
Blue-light filtering intraocular lenses (IOLs) for protecting macular health
TLDR
Blue-light filtering IOLs have been suggested to impart retinal protection and potentially prevent the development and progression of age-related macular degeneration, and the evidence relating to these suggested benefits was investigated.
The Effects of Blue Light–Filtering Intraocular Lenses on the Protection and Function of the Visual System
TLDR
Evidence suggests that BLF IOLs would be returning the eye to a more natural state compared with non-BLF lenses, and recent studies reported no adverse effects on visual function or contrast under photopic conditions, no long-term effects on color vision, and no detrimental effects on circadian rhythms.
The evidence informing the surgeon's selection of intraocular lens on the basis of light transmittance properties
TLDR
On the basis of currently available evidence, one cannot advocate for the use of blue-light-filtering IOLs over UV-only filtering I OLs, and there is no level 2b (or higher) evidence in support of blue filtering Iolos vs UV- only filtering Iols.
Cataract surgery in patients with age-related macular degeneration: questions and controversies
TLDR
This study is instrumental in the development of measures preventing the reactivation of the pathological process, improving visual functions and the quality of life of patients after surgical treatment of cataracts.
Retinal Protection from LED-Backlit Screen Lights by Short Wavelength Absorption Filters
TLDR
The use of short-wavelength selective filters on the screens contribute to reduce LED light-induced damage in the rat retina.
Treatments for dry age-related macular degeneration and Stargardt disease: a systematic review.
TLDR
A systematic review of treatments for dry AMD and STGD was carried out, and a number of promising research topics were identified, including drug treatments, stem cells, new forms of laser treatment, and implantable intraocular lens telescopes.
OPTH_A_213280 2427..2438
TLDR
Evidence suggests that BLF IOLs would be returning the eye to a more natural state compared with non-BLF lenses, and recent studies reported no adverse effects on visual function or contrast under photopic conditions, no long-term effects on color vision, and no detrimental effects on circadian rhythms.

Changes in fundus autofluorescence in patients with age-related maculopathy. Correlation to visual function: a prospective study
TLDR
The preliminary data suggest that a patchy pattern of AF indicates a relatively high risk of progression to age-related macular degeneration with visual loss.
Patterns of increased in vivo fundus autofluorescence in the junctional zone of geographic atrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium associated with age-related macular degeneration
TLDR
The different patterns of autofluorescence in the presence of GA associated with ARMD may reflect variable forms of reactive changes in the surrounding RPE cells, and may indicate the extend of compromised RPE secondary to ageing changes inThe outer retina, Bruch’s membrane and choriocapillaris.
Autofluorescence Patterns as a Predictive Factor for Neovascularization
TLDR
The results indicate that patchy, linear, and reticular patterns are the specific patterns associated with CNV development in nonexudative AMD.
