Equinox Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
We are proud to be the only optometry practice in the state of Minnesota to offer the Equinox Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT). LLLT is a non-invasive, pain and stress-free Meibomian Gland & Dry Eye Treatment for all patients regardless of skin type. No gel is required and both upper and lower lids are treated simultaneously, using direct and indirect Photobiomodulation, during the typical 15-minute application.
Our technology utilizes specially designed LED lights to deliver focused light of a specific color that targets the cellular power plants of the cells – the mitochondria, via comfortable wearable mask technology. This photobiomodulation stimulates the production of ATP – the energy that powers the cell. Our exclusive Mask technology places the LEDs 5-10mm from the skin, optimizing treatment.
LLLT technology has been used in medicine for over 10 years but only until recently did doctors discover its benefit for the Dry Eye patient, as well as several other eye conditions.
