Envision Eye Care proudly introduces the latest cutting-edge technological advance in caring for the eye health of its patients, the Quantifeye MPOD test, in our fight against ocular disease. This amazing technology helps to check your eyes' natural defenses against blue light by measuring your macular pigment (The MP in MPOD). This is a yellow colored spot found in the macula, the area of the retina responsible for your central and detail vision. Made up of two unique substances called lutein and zeaxanthin, macular pigment acts as a sort of 'internal sunglasses,' that play a vital role in protecting the macula against the harmful effects of blue light, the largest dose of which usually comes from electronics such as smartphone, television and computer screens.
In the past, many instruments have been used to measure MPOD, with varying levels of success and accuracy, but QuantifEye is the first of its kind to bring this increasingly important test to the wider public.
