What is Macular Degeneration?

Macular Degeneration is a problem concerned with the retina of the eye.

In this disorder, the nerves of the central part of the retina are affected, and this is called the macula.

In this condition, the central vision is blurred whereas the peripheral vision of sides is normal.

The effect is so intense that the affected person is considered to be blind.

What does Iris do?

Iris reduces blue light from the monitor which causes macular degeneration.

The point is that nowadays blue light is everywhere in the form of smartphones, computers, laptops and other screens.

Blue light, if in normal amount as in nature, is not harmful but unfortunately, artificial light emits blue light in a huge amount which is very dangerous for our vision.

We know that how UV light is harmful to our body but what we don’t know is that blue light is equally harmful.

When blue light passes through our eyes, it reaches macula and after sometime macular degeneration makes its way.
