Concerns about vision with Red Light Therapy .

I am doing Red Light Therapy for aging. I wear the goggles but still see the color and brightness and am worried about my eyes, as my mother had age related macular degeneration. I want to continue the treatments , but don't want to risk eyesight. Am I being paranoid? Thanks.

Yes, you are, light can be seen but LED light protected.

Absolutely paranoid, light transmission via the tissues on not DIRECTLY into the eye. This applies for most lasers, with the exception of vascular and Q Switch lasers. I always take laser surgery seriously like a loaded gun. One shot and blindness can occur. If Specialist know their IPL- BBL_LED and laser physics, you will be in good hands, so see a specialist.
