Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) by Celluma – Treatment for Dry Eye in Avon, CT  

Dry eye disease affects millions of people in the United States, and that number is growing in both young and older adults. Patients at our Avon, CT and New Hartford, CT offices often tell us that their eyes are burning, gritty, and dry, they must blink a lot to clear their eyes, they have concerns about fluctuations in their vision, and they feel like they don’t see as well after being on the computer all day. These are all symptoms of dry eye disease!  

Our dry eye specialists in Avon and New Hartford offer advanced treatments for dry eye disease. One of the treatments we offer is low level light therapy (LLLT) by Celluma.  

What is low level light therapy (LLLT) by Celluma?  

Celluma’s LLLT uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate cellular activity and promote healing. When used for dry eye treatment, the light energy helps to increase blood flow and reduce inflammation in the eyes. This can help improve tear production and relieve dryness and discomfort. Light therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction and blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids), which are two common causes of dry eye symptoms. Many patients report significant improvements in their symptoms after just a few sessions, with results lasting for weeks or even months.  

What are the benefits of LLLT by Celluma?  

Some of the benefits of low level light therapy include: 

  • Immediately return to your daily activities after treatment – no recovery period    
  • Decrease your dependence on eye drops    
  • Treat the underlying cause of dry eye, not just the symptoms   
  • Celluma light therapy is also effective in addressing a range of other skin-related issues such as acne, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage.

What to expect during a LLLT session  

During the treatment, you will sit or recline in a comfortable position while a specialized device is placed over your eyes. The device will emit gentle light energy that penetrates deep into the tissues, stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. You may feel a sense of warmth during the treatment, but there is no pain or discomfort. Some people even say the experience is relaxing and rejuvenating. The entire treatment typically lasts around 30 minutes, making it easy to fit into your schedule. 

Before you undergo LLLT treatment, our eye doctor will complete a thorough evaluation of your eyes to make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment. This will likely include tests to measure the health of your eyes and tear production. Our eye doctor may also ask you to avoid using makeup or lotions on your face for 24 hours before treatment, as these can increase the risk of side effects.
