Red light shown to bring back vision!!

We are all getting older right! So the implications of this study could yield large benefits to every older observer . Now to figure out the frequency of my red led torches?? Suggestions welcome . I might just build my own!!

Thanks Wes, that looks interesting.

From the research:

"All of the subjects were given a small LED torch that emits a deep red 670-nanometer beam, and were asked to look into it for three minutes a day across a two-week period. Follow-up testing revealed that the therapy had no impact on the younger subjects, but brought significant benefits for those 40 and over."

So 670nm is the wavelength to use.

Cheers

Dennis
