With this service update, White Plains Eye Care’s optometry specialists can issue patients a comprehensive eye examination with an emphasis on evaluating the quantity and quality of their tear production. If appropriate, the optometrist will schedule the patient for LLLT, a non-invasive treatment option that uses medical-grade LEDs to stimulate Adenosine ATP production, a signaling molecule that is crucial to retinal function and eye lubrication.
Light sensitivity is often due to a lack of lubrication of the cornea, which is the first point of entry for light into the eye. If untreated, this type of light sensitivity can cause mild to severe pain in the eye when exposed to light and can trigger migraines. Improving tear production creates a healthy, consistently lubricated ocular environment that allows the cornea to react and absorb the light without creating discomfort.
Using the EPI-C Plus appliance, the optometrists at White Plains Eye Care can use LLLT to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and ATP in the eye with red light. The blue light delivered through this LLLT purifies the eye and eliminates bacteria, creating a more balanced ocular ecosystem. White Plains Eye Care’s LLLT also improves the function of the meibomian glands, which secrete lipids to form a protective layer of tear film on the eye for consistent lubrication.
