Optometrists and ophthalmologists can treat dry eye disease using weak alternate electrical current patterns using Quantum Molecular Resonance (QMR).
QMR emits an alternating electrical signal containing a specific range of frequencies, from 4 to 16 MHz, that are the same as the molecular bonds in biological tissue.
Subsequent studies found widening the range of frequencies, from 4 to 64 MHz, stimulated the metabolism and natural regeneration of biological tissue and cells.
QMR sends electrical signals to stimulate the metabolism and natural regeneration of malfunctioning cells and tissues, such as the lacrimal glands and Meibomian glands.
Our bodies rely on electrical currents to function – they stimulate our muscles to contract and we see or hear because our eyes and ears generate and transmit electrical signals to our brain. Electrical currents – both naturally and artificially generated – can also affect the body’s repair and healing processes.
This can be used to help patients with dry eye without the need for drops or gel.
This technology is used only in the Resono Rexon-eye Dry Eye Treatment device. Read more about it here.
