If you have ever wanted to have blue eyes instead of brown Dr. Gregg Homer at Stroma Medical in California can make it possible for you. The color-change procedure is the following: the melanin, which is brown pigment of the iris, is removed; after its removal, the blue color under the melanin is exposed. However, the change is permanent.
According to Dr. Homer, the eye tissue is not damaged during or after the procedure but, however, it might still be dangerous. Dr. Robert Cykiert, an associate professor of ophthalmology at the NYU Langone Medical Center, considers that the change can lead to high pressure in the eye, known as glaucoma. Dr. Ivan Schwab, a professor of ophthalmology at the University of California at the Davis School of Medicine and a clinical correspondent at the American Academy of Ophthalmology, proposes that more long-term studies should be conducted before the procedure is offered to the public.
You can have blue eyes instead of brown, also glaucoma instead of a clear vision. Contact lenses are still a better option, don’t you think?
