Actress Wendy Raquel Robinson was looking to make her eyes pop on camera and says that she used whitening drops, commonly called blue drops. After years of use, she says it had the opposite effect.
At first, she says it gave her eyes a brighter and whiter appearance, but now she has begun developing gray and bluish spots on her eyes. The Doctors send Raquel to eye surgeon Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler to find out if there is anything that can be done.
Dr. Boxer Wachler explains drops that she has been using contain a dye that has stained the whites of her eyes. He uses a tool to remove the excess dye pigment from her eyes. Following her procedure, Raquel and Dr. Boxer Wachler join the panel to share the results.
"I feel amazing and I feel like I look good too!" a very happy Raquel -- who underwent the procedure just 10 days ago -- says. "It was painless it was seamless... it was maybe 10 minutes at the most. It went by so fast."
Dr. Boxer Wachler explains many doctors will tell patients that stains on the whites of the eyes cannot be fixed, but he has pioneered a procedure to solve this issue. It involves de-laminating the pigment of the eye in a surgery-less procedure.
