    Default Yellow LEDs for dry, gritty eyes

    I've been using a yellow LED array under my jaw where the glands are. This is the main area where my flushing starts. When I apply it my mouth waters almost instantly. It seems to stimulate my saliva glands. I have really dry gritty-feeling eyes due to ocular rosacea, so I decided to try the yellow LEDs on my eye lids. It has made a huge difference; I no longer need eye drops and they feel moist, with no grit.

    Happiness is a choice.

    Hey! So you dont wear any eyeprotection then if you treat your eyelids? Is this dangerous or can it be done without any apparent risk of eyedamage?

    No. I have posted on this a few times.

    595nm. Some consider it the beginning of the 'red' wavelength.

    I am fascinated by this low level light therapy and am continuously amazed by what it can do and how it can help.

    Default yellow led occular rosacea??

    hi i'm a newbie with recently occular and facial rosacea currently on restasis and artificial tears. i have had great success with restasis to date ( 1 month) but am curious about yellow LED. Can you give me specifics on your yellow LED protocol (ie: company, distance, time applied, how often used, and other treatment parameters, also mcd and nm if possible, pulsed or continuous treatment sessions). I have background in therapeutic ultrasound research, and am interested in learning more about this modality, for obvious personal but also scientific reasons.

    also, do you have meibomianitis/blepharitis or just abundant corneal neovascularization??

    thanks so much,

    anthony

    I bought this one from V, the Ledman. It's a rectagular brick with 96 LEDs, I've just ordered a round one with 126 LEDs (from a different source) that are behind glass, I'll see if that works equally well. I prefer the round shape -- this one will not run as bright (approx. 3000 MCD).

    I use it once (sometimes twice) a day (morning and night, while I'm in bed), 5 minutes each eye about an inch away. The LEDs are 595nm and rated approx. 4000 MCD, V runs them a bit hot so they're probably closer to 5000. That keeps my sessions short. I have a 660+595 'brick' as well and I use both interchangeably. I do not use pulse. As far as what I have, the 3 eye doctors I saw this year just said occular rosacea, very dry eyes and scratched corneas (both the later due to the former). My eyeglass prescription is a best guess because the dry eyes affect my astigmatism (explains 3 doctors). My eyelids swell and I lose my lashes (not all, just chunks), my eyes become so inflammed and irritated sometimes I wish I could just pluck them out. But not anymore. 8)

    how quickly did you begin to see improvement with your eyes? do you feel like they're continuing to improve?

    if 100% = normal eyes. what % would you rate your eyes at present vs. % before starting yellow led??


    thanks for the info.
