Laser Procedure Can Make Your Brown Eyes Blue – Permanently

For obvious reasons, parents have always taught their kids that what matters is on the inside, and not on the outside. They tell us to accept what we were born with, that we’re all beautiful regardless of size or shape or color. And yet, still for the same obvious reasons, there are a number who are unsatisfied with what they were born with or how they look.

Brown to Blue Eyes

I understand how some people would want cosmetic surgery performed to reduce their waistlines or to make their noses pointier or to lift up their sagging skin (although I’m not for it at all.) I also understand that some people want to change their eye color sometimes and use contact lenses to do so.

What I don’t really get is how far some people will go to make such physical changes – like undergoing a laser procedure to permanently change their eye color from brown to blue.

The technology is developed by Dr. Gregg Homer from the Stroma Medical in California, and he calls it the Lumineyes technology. The procedure makes use of lasers that remove the brown pigment called melanin from the top layer of the iris. The color then slowly turns to blue over the course of a couple of weeks, as you can see above. And this change won’t come cheap, as it’s going to be priced at $5,000, although you might have to wait for a couple of years to get the procedure done if you’re interested.

Dr. Homer explains: “A blue eye is not opaque, you can see deeply into it, while a brown eye is very opaque. I think there is something very meaningful about this idea of having open windows to the soul.”

I don’t know about you, but I’d rather stick with my brown eyes. (Destiny’s Child wrote a song about brown eyes once, and I don’t think having an opaque eye color is that bad.)
