Hanson Medical are proud to announce that Prof James Wolffsohn will be delivering an exciting lecture on PhotoBioModulation for the Ocular Surface at 100% Optical OSA Stand W330, Saturday 25th February, 12:30pm.
"PhotoBioModulation for the Ocular Surface"
Photobiomodulation is “the mechanism by which nonionising optical radiation in the visible and near-infrared spectral range is absorbed by endogenous chromophores to elicit photophysical and photochemical events at various biological scales without eliciting thermal damage”. Come and find out how it differs from Intense Pulsed Light Therapy and how you can use it in clinical practice to treat dry eye patients.
