WhiterEyes: An Exciting Treatment for Permanently Bloodshot Eyes

WhiterEyes in Beverly Hills

When you think of whitening treatments, the first thing to come to mind is probably a cosmetic procedure for your teeth. However, if you are one of the many Americans who has eyeballs that are less than white in color, you may be pleased to learn about WhiterEyes®. Leading ophthalmologist Brian Boxer Wachler, MD pioneered this treatment so patients can gain renewed confidence in their appearance.

While teeth whitening is cosmetic, eye whitening is more than cometic. People with discolored eyes feel very self-conscious because others may think that they are always tired, on drugs, etc. It can be emotionally difficult for those suffering from discolored eyes making them very self-conscious.

What Makes Your Eyes Discolored?

The sclera is the white part of the eyeball that extends from the cornea to the optic nerve at the back. It is a strong layer of collagen fiber that helps to hold the eyeball in place and support its structure.  On top of the sclera is a membrane called conjunctiva that is visible to others.

Although normally mostly white, the conjunctiva can have spots or streaks of pigmentation. The most common color is red (aka bloodshot eyes) which are caused by years of unprotected sun exposure, injury, irritation, or allergies. Brown spots can appear on people with excess melanin production. When sun exposure creates freckles on the eye, it can pose a risk of turning into melanoma, so it is important to monitor brown and gray spots on the sclera for changes that could be a sign of cancer.

How WhiterEyes Can Help

The conjunctiva is a thin layer that covers and protects the white part of the eyes. Conjunctivoplasty is a surgery that involves removing or reconstructing the conjunctiva tissue. WhiterEyes® is an elevated version of traditional conjunctivoplasty that focuses on removing tinted parts of the conjunctiva to allow for brighter, youthful-looking eyes when new conjunctiva regrows.

This procedure only takes Dr. Brian about 15 minutes per eye. Best of all, it typically does not cause the patient discomfort. Many patients return to work the day after their procedure. Results can be seen anywhere from instantly to a few weeks (depending on the original reason for the irregular pigmentation or redness). Most patients enjoy their whiter eyes for many years following WhiterEyes treatment provided they are diligent with wearing sunglasses outdoors.

Why You Should Choose Dr. Brian for This Treatment

Because eye whitening requires the surgical removal of some conjunctiva tissue, this kind of treatment should only be performed by a talented ophthalmologist. Do not make the mistake of thinking that any professional can successfully perform eye whitening.

Dr. Brian has devoted his career to treating eye diseases and disorders.
