Dr. Janjua Launches Specialist Lenses for Macular Degeneration (AMD)
The practice dispenses specialist lens types, tints and coatings which can help people with various daily tasks such as driving (day driving and night driving), vision in low light level and VDU work.
In 2016 Dr. Janjua introduced specialist lenses from the USA for people with vision loss related to Glaucoma, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Diabetic Retinopathy and macular degeneration (AMD). These special – prismatic lenses change the direction of light to alternative healthier parts of the retina. Combined with a special filter to improve contrast – they have been a huge success.

It even offers frames which are virtually unbreakable including titanium – where the sides (arms) are based on the human shoulder joint and ones with nose pads that soften when they touch the skin around the nose.
