Is Microcurrent Therapy Safe Around the Eyes?

When it comes to improving eyesight, glasses and contacts can only do so much. That’s where microcurrent devices come in. We don’t blame you if you’re considering microcurrent therapy to help with an eye condition. It’s a popular treatment route that shows incredible promise for a whole host of health issues. But we know what you’re really wondering is, “is microcurrent safe around the eyes?” We’re here to answer that question (and any others you might have), so you can make an informed decision about your treatment options.

The Trinity of Eye Health Revealed

The five pillars of The Hache Protocol for Pain Resolution™ (stress reduction, fitness, nutrition, sleep, and microcurrent) are our blueprint for optimal health and wellness in your body. But when it comes to eye care, “The Trinity Of Eye Health” is an excellent guide to protecting you from potential problems that could arise with these vital organs! Yes – the eye is an organ, surprising, right?

The Trinity Of Eye Health includes:

  • Nutrition: When you get adequate amounts of specific nutrients, your eyes can keep a healthy and robust and healthy structure! Learn about the 7 Most Powerful Vitamins and Nutrients for Eye Health here.
  • Blood Flow: In most cases, increasing blood flow will promote eye health and healing by delivering white cells that stave off infections or red ones which deliver oxygen. Our two favorite ways to promote healthy circulation? Microcurrent therapy and nitric oxide supplements.
  • Electrical Potential: Injury and illness bring about a nutritional crisis in our cells, resulting in their electrical potential decaying, thereby preventing them from repairing themselves or carrying out reproductive activities essential for healing. By using microcurrent pulses modulated to specific frequencies, we can work to restore your body’s innate electrical potential and, thus, healing capabilities.

How Does Microcurrent Therapy Work?

Microcurrent therapy is a type of electrical stimulation that uses very low-level current to help stimulate cell regeneration and healing and increase blood circulation, collagen production, ATP production, and more. It can be done at home or in a medical setting. During microcurrent therapy, a small electrode is placed against the skin and sends electrical impulses through the body. There are a variety of attachments to choose from, depending on your goals. The current is so low that you shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort. Treatments are typically done in a series of sessions, with many people seeing results after just one treatment.

Is Microcurrent Therapy Safe Around the Eyes?

In short, YES! Microcurrent therapy is safe around the eyes. In fact, microcurrent may be the secret to excellent eye health. Many people use microcurrent therapy specifically to treat conditions like dry eye syndrome, ocular headaches, and meibomian gland dysfunction (which can cause inflammation, itching, and pain). But that’s not all microcurrent therapy can do. It also helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes; we call this treatment a “Microcurrent Facelift.”

These FDA-approved devices work by sending tiny electrical currents directly into the eyes, stimulating muscles and nerves to enhance vision conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This therapy is also non-invasive and pain-free, making it a safe alternative for those looking to improve their eyesight without surgery. While results vary from person to person, many who have tried microcurrent device therapy have reported improved visual acuity and overall eye health.

The bottom line is this: microcurrent stimulation encourages restorative activity in the cells of the eyes, ensuring they function at their best. If you’re interested in learning more about using microcurrent therapy for the eyes, check out our blog post, Microcurrent and Eye Health. There, we discuss how to use our specially designed microcurrent devices and accessories, such as microcurrent goggles, to perform easy and effective treatment protocols.

Age-related macular degeneration affects millions of older adults, gradually eroding central vision and impacting everyday tasks such as reading, driving, and even recognizing faces. While treatments are available for the wet type of macular degeneration, dry AMD currently lacks reliable therapy options.

A 2015 study sought to evaluate the potential efficacy of microcurrent therapy in slowing the progression of both dry and wet AMD and possibly improving vision. The results showed promising changes in retinal thickness, indicating that microcurrent may be able to delay degeneration and potentially enhance visual acuity in both forms of AMD.

While more extensive studies need to be conducted before this treatment can become mainstream, these findings offer hope for a possible new method for managing age-related macular degeneration.
