An Emerging Optical Treatment
Around the age of 40 our retinal cells begin to age, studies have shown that using red light treatment as little as once a week for 3 minutes, can protect your eyes and help to slow down the ageing process.
Red light treatment works by stimulating the cells, in particular, the part of the cell called the mitochondria which gives the cell it’s energy.
Red light therapy is an emerging treatment, not only used in ophthalmology, but also cosmetically for conditions such as wrinkles, scaring and acne and in neurology and psychiatry to support brain health.
Macular Degeneration is an age related eye condition in which the cells in the middle of the retina, the macular are damaged or die. People with Macular Degeneration lose their central vision but their peripheral remains. Red light is very new in the treatment of Macular Degeneration but recent studies have shown some improvements in vision.
