Frequently asked questions
Most frequent questions and answers
How long does the MP-eye test take?
On average it takes 52 seconds, with a range of between 20- 180 seconds.
Are glasses/ contact lenses worn for the test?
Correction of visual acuity is not necessary for the test. Glasses should be removed as the lenses can alter the polarisation used by the MP-eye, however Contact lenses do not need to be removed as they do not interfere with the test.
What actions should we recommend to someone that scores low on the MP-eye?
People with low macular pigment density can protect their eyes by wearing sunglasses or photochromics regularly even on overcast/cloudy days, eating a broad diet of dark green and brightly coloured fruits and vegetables, wearing a wide brimmed hat, considering macular pigment supplements and adding blue light filtering lens coatings to their prescription glasses.
Should I test all patients?
Yes. Understanding your natural protection against damaging light is helpful for people of all ages. That said, some patients with vision impairment may find the test very difficult e.g. severe cataracts.
Why test when eyecare providers can already recommend extra protection?
Everyone knows they should eat well, and protect their eyes, but we’ve collected data that demonstrates that giving someone an assessment of their natural protection can greatly improve their likelihood of those with low defences actually making positive lifestyle changes and buying protective products to enhance their eye-health.
