We are excited to offer this cutting edge technology to our patients for the treatment of dry eye disease due to meibomian gland dysfunction, blepharitis and ocular rosacea. LLLT also has cosmetic benefits including decreasing under eye puffiness and reducing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Developed by NASA, LLLT utilizes medical grade LED lights at a particular wavelength to improve cellular function and decrease inflammation. It has been used for decades in other medical fields such as dermatology and dentistry.
Most patients can be successfully treated in two to four 15 minute sessions. 85% of patients who receive LLLT report noticeable improvement of symptoms after their first treatment.
Several of our patient have undergone treatment here at the office and the results have been overwhelmingly positive! The following are comments from two of our patients:
“NO more tears! After many bouts of non stop tears, red and extremely irritated eyes, I finally have relief. Dr. Longo, with help from new LLLT, gave me a comfortable, non invasive long term treatment for my dry eye. Thank you!”
“I would leave 10 stars if I could!! Dr Longo Williams and the rest of the staff are the BEST! They always make you feel welcome and well cared for. Dr Longo recommended LLLT therapy for my dry eyes and after four weekly sessions I noticed a huge difference! I couldn’t recommend Dr Longo enough!”
