The therapeutic potential of 670nm light in retinal degeneration
The retina is susceptible to degenerative changes over the natural life-span, owing to a range of different factors, including genetic susceptibility and environmental and lifestyle factors such as smoking, diet and exposure to bright light. Photoreceptors, with their high metabolic demands and polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA)-rich outer segments (OS), are the most vulnerable of retinal cells, being sensitive to oxidative damage and inflammatory attack, resulting in cell death. Because the...[Show more]
