What's the cost of beauty?

Inspect the ingredient list of your favorite products to understand their true benefit - or - potential to harm you!

“Unfortunately, there are many brands out there more oncerned with profits than your health, and they work hard to masquerade their products as the health concious choice... but you can outsmart them with very little effort” - Dr. Roya

DON’T: Try to avoid waterproof mascaras and makeups - these are hard to remove! Keep makeup (creams, eyeliner, etc) away from the eyelid margin.

Want non-toxic, non-irritating make up remover?

DO: Try natural products like pure argan oil or the We Love Eyes product line.

DON’T: Avoid liquid makeup removers which can be very harsh and strip the eyes of natural oils.

Hi, I'm  Dr. Roya!

I'm an Optometrist with extensive experience and expertise in the fields of dry eye, eye comfort, keratoconus, speciality contact fitting, and comprehensive eye care.


As a globally recognized professional in my field, I shifted my focus in 2023 towards sharing my knowledge and skills with other practitioners in order to help the greatest number of people. To achieve this goal, I have established Ojos Del Mar, a concierge eye care clinic located in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, where through a multi year Advanced Fellowship training program, I impart my knowledge to licensed Costa Rican optometrists, assisting them in enhancing the quality of eye care available to the people of this beautiful country.
