Have you ladies heard about this? Scientists think they have discovered a procedure that can safely turn brown eyes blue.
By using lasers, they claim to erase all brown melanin in the eye and then replace it with blue pigment over a two or three week period. For an estimated $5,000, this irreversible procedure could be available in the U.S. in just 3 years.
I have blue eyes, and I’m perfectly happy with them. But I don’t think they’re any prettier than brown, or green, or grey ones. Eye color is such a small piece of our physical beauty… I personally can’t imagine spending all that dough (or risking my eyesight!) just to change the coloring.
But for the 19 million people who wear colored contacts everyday, maybe it seems like a small price to pay… what do you think?
Would you get surgery to alter your eye color? Do you (or someone you know) wear colored contacts? If there was no risk and no cost, would that make a difference? Share your thoughts in the comments!
