Low-level light therapy (LLLT) provides a comfortable and noninvasive treatment to target the source of dry eye disease. It reduces inflammation and enhances cellular healing. LLLT treatment only takes 15 minutes, and there is little to no downtime!
Using gentle light patterns, LLLT technology warms your eyelids to help loosen blockages in your meibomian glands, promoting the healthy flow of oils to your tear film and stabilizing your eye comfort.
Some patients can even experience noticeable improvement in their eye comfort after a single appointment!
It is possible not to know if you’re developing dry eye. However, getting help is important even if you’re only experiencing minor symptoms. If left untreated, dry eye could cause long-term issues and increase your risk of experiencing corneal damage or frequent eye infections.
Annual eye exams are essential to detecting dry eye and getting the help you need. If you notice any of these symptoms, please book an appointment today.
