unstar this property answer text <p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has advised that there were no exceptional circumstances that led to the addition of a review question on blue-light filtering intraocular lenses in the development of its guideline on the management of cataracts. The draft review questions in the scope for the guideline referred to various aspects of lens design and, during the NICE Guideline Committee’s work on this area, the question relating to blue-light filtering intraocular lenses was added and subsequently signed off through all the normal processes. This is consistent with the normal way in which questions are refined by committees during guidance development.</p> more like this
