PREVIEW - Ocular light toxicity and the requirement for protection
Date of publication :
Best moments of the round table discussion of eight international eye health experts with a diverse range of professional and geographic backgrounds (North America and four European countries) who met in Paris (November 2016) to discuss blue light toxicity. The aim of the meeting was to share personal experience in this field, identify areas to focus on, and explore solutions for managing potential blue light toxicity.
The event was chaired by Prof. Dot. The panel captured a wide range of domains in eye health care, including academic and applied research in both the preclinical and clinical settings, as well as patient management in surgery and private practice. The meeting was driven by an increasingly pressing need to deepen knowledge among our eye health professionals on the biohazards of light exposure – and specifically on the dangers of and the need for protection from blue-violet light.
