Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any question?

It is a procedure that by using a low energy laser removes the pigment from the iris of the eye to change its color.

The color change is achieved by removing the brown pigment from the anterior layer of the iris. Once this layer disappears, the eye acquires a green or blue-gray color.

No. At this stage we are only doing the procedure in the colours of light brown, amber, hazel and green irises. We are not doing the procedure in dark brown eyes.

Because it is not possible to clarify so much. People with dark brown eyes have pigment in the stroma, under the previous pigment layer, and that pigment can not be removed with our laser.

Yes, probably. With the advances in laser technology, the stromal pigment will be eliminated.

No. The procedure removes the brown pigment and the resulting color will also depend on the characteristics of the iris stroma, for example, amount and thickness of fibers, pigment between the fibers, etc.

Until now, selecting light brown eyes we have seen that 3 or 4 sessions are enough to achieve an iris clearance.

The sessions are done with a rest period of 1 or 2 weeks between them.

After each session the vision is blurred. That day is recommended to rest. The next day you can make a normal life.

The patient must be over 18 years old and ideally under 45 years old.

The medical follow-up does not ensure that the pigment will not return, but apparently during the first 12 months in the first patients, there is no re-pigmentation in any of them.

Until now the results indicate that the treatment causes only transient increases in Intraocular Pressure, without causing a permanent rise. That is, it does not cause Glaucoma.

There may be transient increases in eye pressure, mild inflammation (red and light sensitive eye) and blurred vision immediately after each session. We have not seen long term complications.

No. The procedure is performed with a laser, neither the doctor nor the staff has contact with the patient’s eye.

Yes. Fundamentally to rule out that the patient has other diseases.

Yes. Previous refractive surgery does not influence the procedure.

Yes. Visual defects such as myopia, astigmatism or hyperopia do not influence treatment.

Yes. Above all, it is the treatment indicated for people with Heterochromia.

Influences indirectly because people with dark skin tend to have more pigment in the iris.

Yes. There are international studies that were done on rabbits with good results and
especially showed that the procedure is safe.
