What is Corneal Tattooing?

Keratopigmentation is a specialized procedure that involves the careful application of pigments to the cornea, allowing individuals to modify and enhance their eye color. Unlike traditional colored contact lenses, keratopigmentation offers a semi-permanent solution with remarkable precision.

  • Change your eye color to the shade you desire.
  • Enhance or intensify your existing eye color.
  • Create unique patterns or designs for a personalized look.
