Photobiomodulation protects the retina from light-induced photoreceptor degeneration

Albarracin, Rizalyn; Eells, Janice; Valter (Valter-Kocsi), Krisztina


Purpose. In this study, the hypothesis that near-infrared (NIR) light treatment (photobiomodulation) attenuates bright-light damage in the albino rat retina was tested. Methods. Young adult Sprague-Dawley (SD) albino rats were raised in dim (5 lux), cyclic light and then exposed to bright (1000 lux), continuous light for 24 hours. The animals were treated with 670-nm light (9 J/cm 2) in an LED array before, during, or after exposure to light. The retinas were examined for function, structural...[Show more]
