What is Eye Color Change?
Dr. Choi is the only ophthalmologist in the United States who trained in Paris, France under the physician who pioneered eye color change, Dr. Francis Ferrari. Dr. Ferrari is considered the “father of eye color change in the world.” The dye we use for eye color change is ordered directly from the manufacturer in Switzerland. The laser used in the procedure is located in our state-of-the-art surgery center.
Is it safe?
There are studies that show this technology is safer than long term color contact use or iris implants, which can cause issues with the health of your eyes. The dye used has not been shown to cause any infection or eye issues.
Can the dye be removed?
Complete color removal may not be possible. However, adjustments to the color can be made.
How long will the procedure take?
The procedure only takes about 45 minutes for both eyes.
Is it painful?
No. Your eye is numbed with a local anesthetic making the procedure painless.
Can I have my vision corrected before or after my procedure?
You can have PRK before having your color changed to correct your vision. However, after color change, a clear lens exchange will be the only method of vision correction after due to where the color is located on the cornea.
If I have already had laser vision correction, will I be a candidate?
It depends on the type of laser vision correction that was performed. We will advise the patient at the time of consultation.
