Retinal function imaging (RFI) is the next noninvasive technique which allows to assess several haemodynamic parameters such as oximetric state, retinal blood flow velocity, capillary perfusion map, and functional metabolic responses to photic activation.
However, photic effects on the circadian rhythm can be largely eliminated by using very dim red light, a common and long-standing practice in studies of circadian function [70-73].
(17,18) The aim of this method is to extend depth of focus and quality of vision as well as decrease photic symptoms, increase spectacle independence rates, and improve distance, intermediate, and near visual acuity.
