Reduction of Glare Discomfort and Photostress Recovery Time through the Use of a HEV-filtering Contact Lens
John Buch , OD, MS, FAAO; Thursday, October 27  in 9: 30am ; Room 29CD   In a randomized, double-masked study, 61 patients wore a HEV light-filtering contact lens in one eye versus a non-HEV light filtering control lens in the other eye and were exposed to the broadband white light with regard to five seconds. The magnitude of eye squint was measured along with photostress recovery time (i. e., the time needed regarding vision in order to return to normal following exposure to bright light). Findings showed the difference between the two lenses was statistically significant (p< 0. 0001). The HEV light filtering zoom lens had a greater reduction in glare discomfort plus photostress recuperation time following contact with bright light.

The Influence of a HEV-filtering Contact Lens on Behavioral Indices of Bright glare
Billy R. Hammond Jr. , PhD; Friday, Oct 28 from 1: 00-3: 00 PM ; Exhibit Hall H
A second randomized, double-masked study completed by 58 patients who wore the HEV lighting filtering contact lens in one eye compared to a non-HEV contact lens within the some other eye, were exposed to broadband stimulated sunlight that created the appearance of halos/starbursts. Results showed the HEV blocking lens has been statistically superior (p< 0. 0001) in reducing harmful visual effects of bright light by decreasing light scatter and visible artifacts (starbursts, halos).
