The MP-eye is a fast and easy tool that assesses a person's natural defence against harmful blue and violet wavelengths that affect the retina. It outputs a single score that ranks your patients' macular pigments' strength against the wider population.
People with high macular pigment levels have a decreased risk of long-term light and oxidative (photochemical) damage to the retina leading to drusen and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In addition people with high levels of macula pigment have better contrast sensitivity, greater ability to deal with glare, and better photo-stress recovery.
Having this information allows Eye Care Professionals to identify patients at risk of developing diseases such as AMD and help patients take action to protect their eyes.
