The environment can be hard on the eyes. Sunlight can cause permanent changes, causing them to be bloodshot, yellow, and to develop brown pigmented spots or freckles that look “stained”. Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler has dedicated a large part of his career as a pioneering eye surgeon to try to rid the world of permanent, discolored eyes.
Sometimes “freckles” can later transform into melanoma (cancer) in about 10-30% of people with pigment on the whites of their eyes. This is another reason people fly here for Dr. Brian to remove those “freckles” before they have a chance to become cancer.

The WhiterEyes® procedure is the name of a technique that can treat brown spots, bloodshot, and yellowing of the eyes. Dr. Boxer Wachler pioneered WhiterEyes® and it is typically painless and only takes about 15 minutes per eye. Brown spots are instantly gone and bloodshot eye results often become visible in just 2-4 weeks. You can usually go back to work even the very next day if you’d like.
As with any procedure, individual results will vary primarily due to differences in healing responses. Patients can note a scratchy sensation for a period of days, dryness of the eyes, and light sensitivity. WhiterEyes® is an advanced way of performing the conjunctivoplasty procedure which has been done by eye surgeons for 53 years.
Just 15 minutes can change your life. And the results are typically long-lasting.

Whiter Eyes FAQ
What Causes Conjunctival Discoloration?
The white portion of your eyes around the pupil and iris is called the sclera. The sclera protects much of the eye’s surface and is covered by a thin membrane called the conjunctiva, but a white, healthy conjunctiva can become yellow, brown, bloodshot or develop tiny, discolored freckles that stain. These changes sometimes signify a health issue, but several lifestyle factors and environmental exposures may lead to sclera discoloration.
Pterygium develops in people who spend most of their lives in the sun, such as surfers, farmers and ranchers — thus its nickname: surfer’s eye. This condition occurs when wind, dust and UV sun exposure create a small growth of yellowish tissue (pinguecula) that stretches out from the conjunctiva that covers your eye and lines your eyelids. As the growth gets larger, it becomes a pterygium and can cover the cornea, affecting your vision. Jaundice is another possible cause of yellowish eyes, which needs to be treated by a doctor as soon as you notice the whites of your eyes turning color.
Brown splotches and spots are typically harmless and more common in people with a darker skin complexion due to higher melanin levels. Freckles (nevus) may happen on the eye, but brown spots that change over time could be cancerous and need medical attention.
If you have eye redness or bloodshot eyes, there may be a few reasons for the discoloration, such as allergies, dry eyes, environmental irritation, eye injury or eye disease. If eye redness is accompanied by eye pain, blurry vision or other symptoms, contact Dr. Brian right away to schedule an eye exam. These could be signs of glaucoma or another condition or disease.
A gray tint in the sclera is often caused by long-term medication use, including the antibiotic minocycline. A blueish appearance can appear if the sclera thins and allows the underlying layer of your eye to show through.
Dr. Brian will evaluate the health and appearance of your eyes and determine if the WhiterEyes® conjunctivoplasty procedure will restore your natural white sclera.
How Does WhiterEyes® Conjunctivoplasty Work?
Conjunctivoplasty, also called conjunctival surgery, treats the discoloration on your eye’s surface by treating the tissue that contains the visible spots and splotches to make the sclera white again. The procedure is typically painless and takes about 15 minutes for both eyes.
When Will I See Results From My WhiterEyes® Procedure?
Your results from WhiterEyes® conjunctivoplasty will depend on the extent of discoloration and the reason it developed. Brown spots are typically gone from the surface right after your procedure, but redness and bloodshot eyes may take up to four weeks to see improvement. WhiterEyes® offers long-lasting results.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from the WhiterEyes® Procedure?
Most patients can return to work the day after their WhiterEyes® conjunctivoplasty, but the healing period varies from case to case depending on the person and the extent of tissue removal. Some people report a scratchy feeling in their eyes for a few days, and you may experience dry eyes and light sensitivity for some time.
