I had my IPL facial hair reduction the day before yesterday on my upper lip, chin and between the eyebrows. Since then I am having pain in my eyes. Is it because of some damage to the eyes with pulse light very close to my eyes. The doctor did not recommend me not to have it near the eyes. When I asked him, he said that it is a very superficial process and does not cause any harm. I have washed my eyes with cold water and put cucumber and potato several times. What should I do for relief. Should I stop the treatment.

Hello, During laser a protective eyewear are used and with this there is no eye damage. Your symptoms are unrelated to laser. Consult a opthalmologist if symptoms persist.
