How Do Eyelights Work?

Eyelights target the weaker functioning hemisphere of the brain via the non-dominant eye. With Eyelights therapy, both sides of the brain are being affected, but emphasis is placed on the non-dominant system where dysfunction usually first occurs.

Stimulation of the non-dominant eye will affect the opposite hemisphere of the brain via the thalamus. When stimulating the right eye, the left side or analytical portion of the brain will be affected greater. When stimulating the left eye, the right side or creative portion of the brain will be affected greater.

The lights flash in a monocular pattern with both top and bottom rows flashing at the same time. However, one row will always flash brighter than the other. When the top row of lights is flashing brighter it will affect the temporal lobe (mentality/emotionality) of the brain and parvo cells of the thalamus greater. When the bottom row of lights is flashing brighter it will affect the parietal lobe (sensory/motor) and magno cells of the thalamus greater.

Research has shown that light projections into the eye can have a profound effect on the hormonal system, emotions, stress levels, sleep, brain function, and many other aspects of a patient’s biochemistry. One study showed remarkable changes in the concentration of neurotransmitters in the cerebro-spinal fluid.

Dopamine is critical to the way the brain controls our movements. Movement control also involves the interaction of many other brain regions, including the mesencephalon (midbrain), where A9 and A10 dopamine cell groups are located. Dopamine production and magno cell activity can be stimulated when wearing Eyelights with the bottom row of lights flashing brighter.

Serotonin plays an important role in a range of brain functions including the regulation of sleep, pain perception, body temperature, blood pressure, and hormonal activity. Within the brain, serotonin is localized mainly in nerve pathways emerging from the pons where A7 and
A8 cells produce serotonin. Serotonin production and parvo cell activity can be stimulated when wearing Eyelights with the top row of lights flashing brighter.

Targeting the Weaker Side of the Brain

Eyelights target the weaker functioning hemisphere of the brain via the non-dominant eye.

Stimulating the Non-dominant Eye

This affects the opposite hemisphere of the brain via the thalamus.

Lights Flash in Monocular Pattern

Light projections into the eye can have a profound effect on the hormonal system, emotions, stress levels, sleep, brain function, and many other aspects of a patient’s biochemistry.

How Can Eyelights Help?

ADHD

Many symptoms of ADHD are similar to those associated with binocular vision problems, such as convergence insufficiency and accommodative problems. Eyelights therapy can help strengthen the weaker eye muscle by stimulating the visual system. Light therapy causes global excitation of the brain, creating elevated levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. Studies show that color can also have a profound effect on behavioral and learning problems. Certain colors can reduce hyperactivity, increase attention span, and improve speed and accuracy.

Dyslexia

Dyslexics have an abnormality that slows down the magno cell pathway, located in the thalamus, that does fast processing for perceiving position, motion, shape, and low contrast. Eyelights therapy increases cellular activity within the thalamus, enhancing magno cell function and improving perception of visual stimuli. It has been found that 87% of reading disabled children show an improvement in comprehension while reading with blue filters. It is thought that a blue filter removes enough of the red in what a person sees, allowing the magno cells to work properly.

Stroke

Brain cells die when they no longer receive oxygen and nutrients from the blood or there is sudden bleeding into or around the brain. Light therapy can excite the cells around the damaged area, minimizing further degradation of tissues and neurons. The excitation of cells can enhance the comeback and maturation of the damaged area to help improve mental, physical, and cognitive losses.

Multiple Sclerosis

In MS, myelin, the fatty substance coating our nerves and enabling them to conduct impulses between the brain and other parts of the body, is destroyed. Light therapy can help sustain myelination by exciting the cerebellum and stimulating cells into producing proteins in order to stay healthy. This stimulation also helps to stabilize muscles of the spine, allowing for better integrity of mid-line structures.

Autism

In autism, a circuit involving the thalamus and frontal lobe of the brain functions abnormally. Many autistic children exhibit sensory integration dysfunction, where problems exist in integrating information coming in from each of their senses. Eyelights therapy stimulates the entire thalamus, creating a cascade of excitation and activity that eventually reaches each of our senses, resulting in a better ability to coordinate sensory information.
