  • Blue-light filtering intraocular lenses (IOLs) for protecting macular health. [Review]
  • CDCochrane Database Syst Rev 2018 May 22; 5:CD011977
  • Downie LE, Busija L, Keller PR
  • CONCLUSIONS: This systematic review shows with moderate certainty that there is no clinically meaningful difference in short-term BCVA with the two types of IOLs. Further, based upon available data, these findings suggest that there is no clinically meaningful difference in short-term contrast sensitivity with the two interventions, although there was a low level of certainty for this outcome due to a small number of included studies and their inherent risk of bias. Based upon current, best-available research evidence, it is unclear whether blue-light filtering IOLs preserve macular health or alter risks associated with the development and progression of AMD, or both. Further research is required to fully understand the effects of blue-light filtering IOLs for providing protection to macular health and function.
