PURPOSE To compare the relative effectiveness of photoentrainment of the circadian rhythm by a blue light-filtering tinted intraocular lens (IOL) (AcrySof Natural SN60), an untinted UV-only filtering IOL (AcrySof SA60), and human lenses in 4 age groups. SETTING Scientific consultant and Department of Biological Structure and National Primate Research Center, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA. METHODS Three of 8 action spectra for circadian photoentrainment published from… CONTINUE READING
