What is Keratopigmentation in Switzerland

Keratopigmentation, also known as corneal tattooing or corneal pigmentation, is a cosmetic procedure performed to change the appearance of the cornea by adding pigment to its surface. It is primarily used to mask corneal scars, irregularities, or discolorations resulting from trauma, surgery, or other conditions.It is nowadays used mainly for aesthetic purposes and mainly from those that have brown eyes (82% of people on earth have brown eyes) whishing to have them often blue or green though many types of pigments exist.

Before undergoing keratopigmentation, the patient undergoes a comprehensive eye examination by an ophthalmologist to assess the health of the cornea, evaluate any existing corneal abnormalities, and determine if they are suitable candidates for the procedure. These lab tests last around 15mn only and are done in clinics before the procedure and can be done almost anywhere in a nearby clinic when the future patient expects to travel to change his eyes' color.

All can be done remote in the first step: you are adviced about the whole process, explain the risks and potential complications if the right laser and or right medical grade pigments are used. You are also advised about the color choice, how many pigments are necessary, the overall cost and practical details and of course, the keratopigmentation protocol:

Keratopigmentation protocol lasts 1h max: consultation then eye color simulation and presentation with few papers to fill out, only few minutes per eye under local anesthesia with drops in the eyes and its done! You are advised to spent one night in a nearby hotel for a 30mn visit control and no post op are required for an amazing lifetime result!

The ophthalmologist selects a suitable medical grade pigment color based on the patient's natural eye color, skin tone, and desired cosmetic outcome. The pigment used in keratopigmentation is typically a medical-grade tattoo pigment that is safe for use in the eye area. It is has to be certified and CE mark in the EU as deemed to be a medical device and is not yet approved in different countries such as the FDA in the USA.

It's important to note that keratopigmentation is a specialized cosmetic procedure that should only be performed by a qualified ophthalmologist with expertise in corneal surgery and pigment application.
