At Sanibel Eyecare, we strongly recommend Hoya Recharge lens treatment for patients who are either computer users or are school-aged. The recommendation is based on a number of important factors:
- Macular damage from HEV light (Smartphone, Tablet, Computer, TV) is an accumulation effect over a lifetime. Similar to UV damage to the skin over time.
- Children are smaller and shorter and thus hold their digital devices closer. Effectively increasing the amount of HEV light to the eyes.
- Children have larger pupils allowing more HEV light to enter the eyes
- Children’s natural lenses are pristine and allow HEV light to enter at full strength.
