An 80 year-old Asian female patient with misplaced eyeliner tattoo was treated with an 810 nm diode laser. A review of the literature examining the use of eyeliner removal lasers with respect to safety and efficacy around the eye was conducted. The successful use of an 810 nm diode laser in this case established the safety and efficacy for utilizing an 810 nm diode laser in the periorbital area for eyeliner tattoo removal.
