On 9th July 2013, Dr Simon Barnard attended the Macular Carotenoids Conference held at Downing College, Cambridge University. The conference discussed the latest evidence-based reseearch on the use and effect of lutein, zeaxanthin, and  meso-zeaxanthin on macular degeneration. In addition to optical coherence tomography (OCT), Barnard Levit Optometrists have now added new technology to diagnose macular degeneration as well as assessing risk, including the Elektron MPS II  macular pigment analyser, the Innova Cone Colour Contrast Sensitivity test and a sophisticated contrast sensitivity analyser.
