I-Brite Eye Redness Removal Operation

I-Brite: For When Visine Isn't Surgical Enough

Almost everybody's eyes get red sometimes, and usually some rest or a healthy dose of anti-redness drops will do the trick to get them bright again. But if that's not good enough for you, there's I-BRITE. The cosmetic procedure makes the whites of your eyes whiter. No eye drops involved, just removing the membrane from your eyes. Yikes.

The idea is simple: Most of the eye's blood vessels are in that membrane, so removing it gets rid of the redness. Dr. Brian S. Boxer Wachler is the world's only ophthalmologist to offer the service; he promises that the 20-minute procedure is painless, and that a clear membrane grows to replace the old one. I can see this procedure doing some real good if you had a permanently broken blood vessel, but I don't know about doing it just for whiter eyes. It's a little too Un Chien Andalou for me. Would you consider having a procedure like this, or would you rather stick with eye drops?

If you don't have chronic red eyes then you do not understand what it is like to have people constantly ask if you are using drugs or why are your eyes so red? I recently flew across the country to have this procedure. I can already tell it will be life changing. The staff and Dr. were amazing, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Every day I wake up and my eyes get brighter and it's only been a couple of weeks.

I've had two eye muscle surgeries, which have left red scar tissue in both eyes, but really bad in my left eye. It's bad enough that people notice it and ask me why my eye is really red. So, yes I would definitely think about doing this.

I don't think so, doesn't sound too safe.

My eyes are never that red, so I'll stick with Visine.

That sounds a little scary, and I'm sure that membrane is there for a reason. Glad the membrane grows back but what happens in the meantime?
