As seen in the media: “Global epidemic of blindness on the horizon”
The results from University Complutense of Madrid (UCM) regarding their latest research are groundbreaking: These studies confirm the irreversible damage to eyes caused by light emitted from digital screens is more serious than the UCM team of scientists thought before and Reticare eye protectors are much more effective than what had been believed previously. The studies have received a variety of interesting coverage in National and International Media.
Popular media outlets in the U.S. such as NBC, CBS, ABC, The Boston Magazine and Fast Company as well as international media such as The Daily Mail (UK) have caused much interest and awareness across a diverse population regarding these historic findings. The study shows it is now clearer than ever that we are facing a new global epidemic (especially for younger generations).
Even though these discoveries should have been a front page news in every media in the world, we realize media chooses what they publish. In some cases, some media may be cautious in publishing such scientific results to avert from influencing audiences that would negatively affect companies with bigger interests in the marketplace.
The UCM team tested the effects of LED exposure on rats, placing six tablets emitting white LED light around the animals’ cages. Tablets were turned on for 16 hours, then turned off for eight hours. The rats exposed to screens lost almost one-fourth of their vision (23 % retina cell death) in only 3 months, The Boston Magazine reports.
The rats that were exposed to tablets filtered with Reticare, the only eye protector based on scientific data, experienced no retina cell death, reports Mary Kekatos, Daily Mail.
The impact of this study on rats indicates a possible massive risk for the human population, taking into consideration that retina damage is the biggest cause of central vision blindness. “It is paramount for adults and parents to act now and protect themselves from further damage”, said Dr. Celia Sanchez-Ramos, the leading scientist of the studies.
Consider this: Rats live between 7-10 years and they were exposed to the high energy light emitted from tables for only 3 months - you can do the math. Is it too late for you and for your family?
There is one way you can beat retina damage: Reticare, is the only eye protector with scientific proof that reverses the effects of LED light.
