MARCO EQUINOX – LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY
Do your eyes BURN, sting, or have a scratchy SENSATION? Are your eyes SENSITIVE to light? Do you have trouble wearing contact lenses due to DRYNESS?
Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
Developed by NASA, LLLT has proven effective at treating dry eye disease. LLLT uses specially designed LED lights to gently warm up the eyelids, causing the meibomian glands to unclog and release oils.
Safe, non-invasive procedure
15 minutes per session
No recovery time needed
No side effects or discomfort
It’s quick and painless! Simply lay back with the Equinox mask on and relax as the warm light clears your glands.
May also help decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles, acne, and rosacea.
What causes periorbital inflammation?
Periorbital inflammation is caused by inflammation on the surface of the eye which can be triggered by a variety of factors such as:
- Dry, dusty, or windy climate
- Insufficient blinking (such as when you’re
- staring at a computer screen)
- Long-term contact lens wear
- Medication side effects
- Eye surgery
Often, periorbital inflammation is caused by blocked Meibomian glands. These are the glands that make the oily, outer layer of the tears. A blockage in the glands can cause insufficiencies in tear film thickness, causing the tears to break apart when they shouldn’t.
Tears are essential for good eye health
After a blink, a tear film coats the surface of the eye and performs many functions for your benefit:
- Tears prevent dryness by coating and lubricating the surface of the eye.
- Tears supply oxygen and nutrients to the surface of the cornea.
- Tears form a barrier from infection and irritants washing away foreign substances.
- Tears help to heal damage to the surface of the eye.
- Tears create a smooth surface on the eye to help you to see more clearly.
Healthy tears maintain a stable tear film over the eye between blinks. If the tear film is not thick enough or doesn’t have enough lipid layer (the outer layer that holds the tear together), the tear can break apart and expose the surface of the eye. If this happens regularly, dry eye disease may result.
