Do Yellow Tinted IOL’s Affect SWAP Perimetry?

August 21, 2010

I never thought of this. In short wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP), blue/yellow is used instead of standard lights. According to a recent study, having one of those newer yellow tinted intraocular lenses that blocks blue light will affect color perception and thus the results of SWAP, which is used to measure visual field changes from glaucoma. We need to keep this in mind.
