An agreement has been signed between Barberini Eyewear and Banca degli Occhi del Veneto Onlus Foundation for a study into the use of optical glass ophthalmic lenses with selective action against infrared radiation, verifying their protective effectiveness in patients affected by dry eyes.
“Dry eye is a diffuse condition, which may be present alone or associated with other favorable ocular and systemic conditions. This agreement aims to evaluate the effect of the use of optical glass ophthalmic lenses, normal or graduated, by patients with moderate dry eyes," says the Medical Director of Banca degli Occhi del Veneto Onlus Foundation, Dr. Diego Ponzin.
Founded 30 years ago as a centre for corneal transplants in Italy’s Veneto region and now also in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, the Banca degli Occhi Foundation is the first eye bank in Europe for a number of selected and distributed tissues, and the first to be established in Italy.
Barberini is known for its unique premium Platinum Glass™ lenses, designed to offer a range of benefits including better rendering of colours and contrast thanks to the presence of Rare Earth Elements, as well as UV400 protection.
