Hello, if your doctor is lasering near the eye, (s)he should have you wear a protective contact. There are special contacts they use just for this purpose. If not, you should have the little goggles like used in a tanning booth. My son's laser was done on his eyelid as well...so each time he was fitted with protective googles or contact. I will leave the question about lip tx up to others that have direct experience; however, I do know that some doctors will laser the lip depending on the need. The issue is hypopigmentation (lightening the lip too much) of the lip.

Good luck
