Blue Light glasses may help with memory problems

Amblyopia

New research has found that blue light glasses may make a difference in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease.

The research, which is published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, found that patients with the disease who had blue light-blocking glasses showed a significant improvement in their memory, and the glasses improved their thinking, and made them feel more confident in their ability to recall important information.

The glasses are now being sold in shops around the country, and it is hoped they will be a new option for those suffering from the condition.

A spokeswoman for the Alzheimer’s Society said that the glasses have been available in the UK for several years, and there had been a positive response.

However, she added that she was not aware of any cases of people who had used the glasses to improve their memory.

The researchers analysed data from a study of over 300 patients with Alzheimer.

The patients were asked to complete a memory test in which they were asked not to remember any details of the test.

They were also given a questionnaire that included questions about their social relationships, work and other aspects of their life.

Some were asked how well they were able to remember a particular item or word, and others were asked whether they could identify a particular person by their face or voice.

Some patients were also asked to write down their thoughts about a particular situation.

The study found that when people were given glasses with blue light, they were better at remembering their memories, as well as performing better at identifying and naming the person in question.

This is important because the brain is less able to distinguish between real and imagined memories, and so can miss out on information.

‘It’s not perfect’ One of the study’s authors, Professor Brian Smedley from the University of Oxford, said that this finding was important because it shows that people with the condition can improve their recall of events.

However he said that it was not clear if it was a permanent improvement.

He added: ‘It is possible that the effects of blue light on memory would last for a period of time, and we may want to test whether this happens to people who develop Alzheimer’s later on.’

He also said that while it was possible that people could improve their abilities with glasses, he was not sure whether this would be enough to prevent people from developing Alzheimer’s.

‘People have a number of ways of improving their memory in the laboratory, so it is possible for a person with Alzheimer to benefit from glasses and cognitive enhancers,’ he said.

‘However, in people who do not have dementia, it may not be possible to improve memory in that way, and people with dementia who benefit from cognitive enhancer drugs may be less able than others to benefit.’

I’m not convinced that the benefits of glasses will last indefinitely, and if the effect of glasses lasts for a long time, it could affect people who have been wearing them for a very long time.’

The study is published on the Journal, Alzheimer’s, and is based on a team of researchers from the Universities of Cambridge and Bristol, who also looked at patients with dementia.

A further study has been looking at whether the glasses may be useful for helping people who suffer from dementia, but the researchers said that their results would be limited.

They say that while the research does show that blue-light glasses may improve the way people with a dementia are affected, the results are limited to one group of people.
