Nature's Own Light Filter

Acrivue Aspheric Foldable IOL is made from Natural Yellow material having a special monomer containing the identical chromophore present in the human crystalline lens. Natural Yellow is the first IOL material to incorporate the same UV-A blocking and violet light filtering chromophore that is in the human crystalline lens. The approach, to UV blockers and violet filters is to use nature's own solutions to the problem of protecting the retina from harmful energetic light. This proprietary natural light filtering material is named as "Natural Yellow".

Technical Details

The absorption spectrum of 2 - Hydroxykynurenine(Figure-1) shows that this natural compound is an excellent UV-A blocker with secondary purpose of filtering (nonblocking) violet light.The visible transmission spectrum of our Acrivue natural Yellow IOL (Figure-2) compared to the transmission spectrum of a young human crystalline Lens as defined by van de Kraats and van Norren. Recent independent investigations have shown that current blue blocking IOLs cause a loss in contrast sensitivity as well as color perception. Acrivue Natural Yellow with Aspheric Optic IOLs provide complete natural protection without loosing contrast sensitivity or color perception.
