Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
Low Level Light Therapy is a non-invasive dry eye treatment that uses LED light to gently warm up the eyelids which melts down the oils to unclog the meibomian glands. The LED mask is placed on your face for 15 minutes. 2-3 sessions about 3-5 days apart are needed to ensure longer lasting results.
In our office, we use red and blue light therapy. The red light is anti-inflammatory, helps with meibomian gland dysfunction, treats styes, and also boosts collagen. Blue light is anti-microbial and treats blepharitis, demodex, and acne. Our doctors may recommend red or blue light or both.
