BRAIN POWER, INC.’S DIAMOND DYE 460/510
This therapeutic tint blocks light of wavelengths shorter than 460 nm when tinted light, and values up to 510 nm when tinted darker. Diamond Dye 460/510 also blocks violet/blue in this spectral range to protect eyes from these light colors, which “have been implicated in macular degeneration,” according to BPI. Diamond Dye 460/510 does not inhibit seeing traffic signal colors, making it suitable for driving. For more information, contact Brain Power, Inc. at 800.225.5274, CallBPI.com.
