Laser-assisted hair removal is a commonly practised office procedure, which was first reported in 1983 and has since been used on a wide scale. Since 1983, numerous types of laser, including ruby laser (694 nm), alexandrite laser (755 nm), Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm), diode laser (800 nm), and intense pulse light (590-1200 nm), have been introduced. These lasers use the principle of selective photothermolysis for targeting melanin in the hair follicles. In this report, we describe the spectrum of ocular injuries related to alexandrite laser-assisted hair removal in 4 patients.
