Biomolecular quantum resonance in the treatment of dry eye disease Review article
Main Article Content
Balancing the composition of tears and, consequently, restoring the homeostasis of ocular surface, is difficult to achieve. This is due to the complex composition of tears, the variety of secretory glands involved, as well as complex and not fully understood interactions affecting the composition, quality, and quantity of tears. The application of Biomolecular Quantum Resonance technology Rexon EyeTM (Resono Ophthalmic, Italy) is based on providing quantum (portions) of high-frequency electromagnetic energy (4–64 MHz) at low power whose interaction with the transport of ions, proteins of cell membranes, and cells changes cell performance. The use of new technology in the treatment of dry eye syndrome combines existing applications of Biomolecular Quantum Resonance such as surgery, treatment of wounds, treatment of bone fractures, as well as treatment pain.
