Science behind Reticare

Health risks associated with Light emitted from screens:

Figure 1: Normal Sight and Sight with Macular Degeneration

1.- RetinaL Phototoxicity, as a result of overexposure to high energy light, can damage the retina cells and increase the risk of macular degeneration or irreversible central blindness

2.- The overexposure to high energy light can accelerate the photooxidation of the crystalline lens and lead to early cataracts

3. Children receive more light than adults and have less natural protection from high energy light

4.- Numerous studies show, when using devices at night, the light emitted from screens influence the circadian cycle that affect the quality and the quantity of sleep.

5.- It has been documented that exposure to Smartphones at night may provoke Transitory Blindness (cases of women, between the ages of 22-40, with 5-20 minutes of transitory blindness were reported).

Summary of Symptoms and consequences for the eye: Macular Degeneration, Cataracts, Dry eye, Photophobia, Headaches, Eye fatigue


Risk groups:

Based on the actual data, it is evident that every single screen user should be protected with Reticare intensive ocular protector. The risks and the amount of possible consequences of light exposure from screens are too varied to predict because the effects are dependent on user habits (how long or how much exposure). Therefore, some may experience bigger complications and/or faster effects than others:

 

Very high risk groups – Highly Recommended: Use Reticare intensive on all screens and use glasses for TVs:
  • Patients with Macular Degeneration or those with any other existing retina damage
  • Glaucoma patients
  • Diabetes patients
  • Heavy screen users, more than 8 hours per day (combined hours from all devices: Smartphones, tablets, computers and TVs)
  • Kids and young adults who look at screens every day
  • Video gamers and YouTubers
  • Virtual reality professionals or heavy users (1 hour per day)
High risk groups – Highly Recommended: Use Reticare intensive on all screens:

 

  • Users who look at screens more than 5 hours per day (combined hours from all devices: Smartphones, tablets, computers and TVs)
  • Those who use screens every day and are over 50 years old
  • Video gamers and occasional Virtual reality (VR) users

Reticare Scientific background

Tema 1

Reticare is the result of 15 years of studies regarding the risks of light on eye health. During these years, more than 100 national/international researchers and 1500 people were involved in the studies. This is why Reticare is the world leader in regards to protection from high energy light or “blue light.”
The most relevant studies that are behind Reticare products:

1 – Animal Experiments with Lab Rats 2002 – 2003

Light exposure: white light, blue light and white light without blue

Filter: Source of light from screens with and without filter

Study: Transversal

Duration: 1 Year

Conclusion: The test results show retinal damage on exposed eyes to radiation of 450 without protection.

2 – Animal Experiments with Lab Rabbits
2003 – 2005

Light exposure: Chronic exposure to cycles of 12hrs light/12hrs dark to white light, blue light and white light without blue

Filter: Intraocular lenses implanted (in eyes) – one eye with filter, one eye without filter

Study: Transversal and Longitudinal

Duration: 2 Years

Conclusion: Observation of the activation of pro-apoptosis genes on unprotected retinas and the activation of anti-apoptosis genes on the photoprotected retinas

3 – Clinical Studies in Humans 2006 – 2015

Light exposure: Observation of humans during daily routine behaviors in natural and artificial light environments as well as during use of screens.

Filter: Intraocular lenses implanted (in eyes) – one eye with filter, one eye without filter

Study: Transversal and Longitudinal

Duration: 7 Years

Conclusions: Reduction of macular thickness in the eyes without protector filter and a higher prevalence of ocular disease observed. The macular thickness of the eye with protector filter remained unchanged.

4 –In-Vitro Experiments with Donated Human

Light exposure: To LEDs, blue (short wave length), green (medium wave length), red (long wave length) and white (cold and warm), in cycle of light/dark for 12 hrs within 3 days.

Filter: LEDs with and without filter

Study: Transversal

Duration: 1 Year

Conclusions: Without photoprotection, over 90% cell death observed. With photoprotection approximately 83% survival rate of cells observed.


5 –In-Vivo Experiments with Lab Rats 2015-2016

The latest study, presented in January 2017, changes everything: the effects of standard tablets on animal eyes without and with Reticare Intensive Ocular Protector.

Light exposure: To LEDs of current tablets in cycles, 16hrs light/8hrs dark, for 3 months

Filter: Retro illuminated LED screens with and without Reticare filters

Study: Longitudinal

Duration: 1 Year

Conclusions: Group of rats exposed to light without Reticare protection, a 23% of retinal cellular death (irreversible) is observed as a consequence of photoexposure. Group of rats exposed to light with Reticare protection, the retinal cellular death is nearly null.
