I-Brite Conjunctivoplasty Procedure
Below are examples of eyes that can benefit from I-BRITE™ Conjunctivoplasty
(note that results will vary person to person)
Many patients wonder “how did my eyes get like this.” Often the appearance of the eyes are related to environment, a combination of exposure to sunlight, pollution, dusty/dry environments, or smoke can cause the unhealthy appearance to your eyes, even though you feel 100% perfect. A slight yellowing growth/lump occurs from sunlight reflection on the eyes over time. Our number one recommendation is to purchase and wear at all times a good quality pair of sunglasses, even while driving.
Most patients describe the procedure as easier than going to the dentist. Usually the procedure takes about 15-20 minutes per eye and it is a 100% no-stitch procedure. Most patients resume work and their daily routine within days after the procedure. The initial whiter results begin to appear 4-6 weeks. Individual results will vary due individual healing responses.
The most common question is – “what are the risks or downsides after the procedure?” Some risks are a slight scratchy sensation for a period of days, moderate irritation for a period of days, a heaviness of the eyelids for a period of days, slight increase of dryness the first year, persistent light sensitivity for a few weeks, and/or recurrence of blood vessels. Other risks, although rare, include infection or scleral thinning. Frequently we evaluated outcomes. Our recent review evaluate 1,786 I-BRITE® Conjunctivoplasty procedures had over 1 year ago which showed light sensitivity beyond 6 months occurred in 3 patients (0.2%). Once the eyes heal, patients often report their eyes feel more comfortable than prior to the procedure. Dr. Brian can discuss the risks of the I-BRITE® Conjunctivoplasty procedure for your particular case in more detail when you come in for your consultation. Side effects are uncommon and treatable in the rare case should they occur.

What are Pingueculae?
Pingueculae are growths that form on or within the clear membrane (conjunctiva) that covers the eye. They are typically yellow or brown areas of thickening on the inner corner of the eyes over the white area of the eye. They are benign (non-cancerous) and do not pose a significant health concern, although if left untreated they can grow and are often associated with Dry Eye, Irritation, and Increased Redness. They can also lead to difficulty wearing your Contact Lenses.
The worst part for most patients is the appearance of these growths cause their eyes to look unhealthy. Although you may feel normal the appearance of these growths decreases self-esteem. Patients report that the avoid social interactions, due to comments from others about the appearance of their eyes.
How did I get these growths?
They can be caused by lifetime of sun exposure and to other environmental factors like pollution, smoke, and dust. Prolonged exposure to sunlight without protection is considered one of the primary causes.
How can I avoid Pingueculae from occurring?
Protecting the eyes with good quality 100% UV blocking sunglasses is one of the best ways to prevent Pingueculae. Once you notice these growths, protecting your eyes can help to slow the progression of the growths. It is suggested to not only wear sunglasses, but consider wearing a hat when outdoors for more than 20 minutes. Also, instilling artificial tears and keeping the eyes lubricating can help.
Dr. Brian conducted a recent study and determined driver and passenger side windows of doors often do not have proper UV coating. He recommends having a clear UV film placed on the side windows of your car to reduce UV exposure while driving. Other studies have shown that skin cancer on the face and left-sided cataracts are more common because of UV exposure in the car while driving.
Are there treatments available to remove Pingueculae?

Dr. Brian’s technique is more than just the removal of tissue growths.

Some patients may note a scratchy or irritated feeling of the eyes for a few days, as well as some light sensitivity. A small number of patients may have some recurrence of blood vessels around the site that pinguecula growths were removed. It is possible the growths could begin to reappear, this is why we strongly suggest wearing sunglasses outdoors and while driving. More rare risks with the procedure are infection and scleral thinning, it is important you follow eye drop and follow-up exam recommendations to avoid these risks. We routinely reviewed records to evaluate for other risks. The most recent review looked at 1327 eyes that underwent I-BRITE® Conjunctivoplasty. This reviewed identified 3 patients that experienced light sensitivity beyond 6 months (0.2%).
Pinguecula regrowth with Dr. Brian’s I-BRITE® Conjunctivoplasty procedure is very low at under 7% – this is a very low rate among all techniques for Pinguecula removal.

It is strongly recommended to complete the postoperative eye drop regimen fully and to always use proper protection from sunlight (sunglasses and hats), in order to maximize the long-term effects of the I-BRITE® Conjunctivoplasty procedure. Another important step is instilling artificial eye drops whenever your eyes feel dry, or when you know they may be exposed to harsh environmental conditions (prolonged sun, wind, dust, etc.).
