Eye Injury From Laser Eyebrow Removal
October 30, 2012
Archives: Researchers report five case reports of inadvertent injury to the eye from laser eyebrow removal. The cases included iritis, glaucoma (mostly pigment-related), pupil distortion and cataract, ultimately requiring surgery. This occurred despite wearing goggles- it seems if the fit is not perfect, the laser energy can seep through and attack the pigmented structures of the eyes. Caution is therefore advised.
