Near-infrared light heals eyes


More research about the benefits of Light Therapy (a.k.a. photobiomodulation) for recovery of vision cells in the retina! “Ms Albarracin said that treating the retina with just a few minutes exposure to soft near-infra-red light a day for less than a week had produced a remarkable recovery in damaged photoreceptors (vision cells) which ordinarily would have died. “ Photonic Therapy …


More research about the benefits of Light Therapy (a.k.a. photobiomodulation) for Macular Degeneration! “LLLT significantly improved visual acuity (p < 0.00001 versus baseline) in 162/182 (95%) of eyes with cataracts and 142/146 (97%) of eyes without cataracts. The prevalence of metamorphopsia, scotoma, and dyschromatopsia was reduced. In patients with wet AMD, edema and bleeding improved. The improved vision was maintained …

Low-level light therapy of the eye and brain


More research about the benefits of Light Therapy (a.k.a. photobiomodulation) for Diabetic Retinoathy! “LLLT or photobiomodulation refers to the use of low-power and high-fluence light from lasers or LEDs in the red to near-infrared wavelengths to modulate a biological function. Cytochrome oxidase is the primary photoacceptor of LLLT with beneficial eye and brain effects since this mitochondrial enzyme is crucial …


More research about the benefits of Light Therapy (a.k.a. photobiomodulation) for Diabetic Retinopathy! “In summary, PBM for only 4 min/day significantly inhibited the development of several clinicallyacceptedand important lesions of DR. In particular, daily administration of PBM for 8 months significantly inhibited the diabetesinduced increase in vascular permeability and capillary degeneration that is characteristic of DR. Moreover, PBM protected against …
