Cosmetic Laser Iridoplasty is a non-surgical technique that alters the color of the iris by applying a low-intensity laser beam. The laser selectively targets the melanin in the iris and removes it, resulting in a lighter eye color. The procedure can change brown eyes to green, blue or gray, depending on the individual's underlaying stroma fiber that make up the iris. The treatment is fast, outpatient and painless and does not require anesthesia or hospitalization.

The process of altering the eye color involves the elimination of the brown pigment, or melanin, from the front layer of the iris. This layer, called the stroma, is responsible for giving the eye its natural color. When the melanin is removed, the stroma becomes transparent and reveals the underlying layer of the iris, which has a green or blue-gray hue. The removal of the pigment is done by using a low-energy laser that selectively targets the melanin cells and causes them to disintegrate. The procedure is painless and takes only a few minutes per eye.

The number of sessions required to achieve the desired color change depends on the initial color of your eyes. For light brown eyes, we have observed that a single session can lighten the iris significantly, and one and a half to two sessions can produce a complete iris clearance. For darker shades of brown, however, more sessions are needed. Typically, three to five sessions are sufficient to obtain a satisfactory result. 
If you want to change your eye color with laser surgery, you need to stay in Turkey for at least eight days. If you have darker eyes, you may need to come back for another eight sessions. We can only do one session per day for your safety and comfort.
