Turn Brown Eyes Blue With Laser Surgery

November 3, 2011


I have brown eyes. And they're romantic as f***. Men and women have actually gotten lost in these peepers for days. Kidding, they're like gazing into two twin @$$holes. And now a California doctor claims he could turn them blue with a quick 20-second cosmetic laser surgery. *starts saving* Sike -- I like my eyes just the way they are: brown and so lazy sometimes one doesn't even open.

The laser energy removes the brown pigment, or melanin, from the top layer of the iris, and the blue eye colour emerges over the following two to three weeks.

However the procedure - which Dr Homer has developed over 10 years - is irreversible because the brown tissue cannot regenerate.

'They say the eyes are the windows to the soul,' he told ktla.com.

'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.'

No, Dr. Homer, there isn't anything meaningful about the "idea of having open windows to the soul." Besides, blue eyes aren't open windows anyway! Having your eyelids removed is.

Thanks to Robin and alex, who, like me, though this whole article was about b-holes at first.

    I have brown eyes and i cant imagine myself doing this stupidity....i mean why would you do that...

  • blue eyes are pretty but i wouldn't change my brown eyes for anything!

  • Robin Manford

    Considering that my brown eyes are the only bit of me that isn't fuck ugly, I think this is a daft idea.

    Pokeball eyes?

  • I just wanna do one eye...anyways, although i love blue eyes, my girlfriend(green eyes(lucky!)) says she likes my brown eyes more than anything.

    why? gah. i hate it how people want to change the way they naturally look. it's not normal. for starters its sad, because it means they're not happy with who they are. secondly, people are more attracted to people who are quite different genetically than people who are very similar, because you will produce healthier offspring. if everybody keeps drastically changing their appearances with cosmetic surgery etc, you'd think that some people would be attracted to others when they wouldn't normally/naturally be etc, and then their kids might not be as healthy as they could have been.

    Although I agree that it can be incredibly vain to change your appearance so drastically, I am somewhat interested because I have primarily green eyes but one has more melanin and this looks more brown than the other. Again, I'd probably opt against because its risky and I do like my uniqueness. Just like I couldn't go through with corrective surgery after breaking my nose, which is still crooked by the way. You are correct about biologically we are more attracted to people who are different but don't worry, its in the pheromones! So even if said person dies their hair or has their eye color changed, it still shouldn't be a problem.

  • Sike?
    I think you mean "psych".
    Credibility factor of -12

  • I believe that the technology behind this is amazing, however, just because you can do something, it doesn't mean you should, especially when it may affect your otherwise healthy eye sight.

  • Well said. Like hydro fracking - It can be done, but should it?
