Doctor Says He Can Turn Brown Eyes Blue

In the never-ending quest for vanity, one surgeon in Laguna Beach, California think he’s found a way to turn brown eyes blue. After 10 years of research Dr. Gregg Homer of Stroma Medical says he’s discovered that brown pigment can be removed from the surface of the iris with a laser leaving the rarer blue pigment...

 Blue eyes are a recessive trait, but even if your parents are carriers there’s no way of knowing what shade, if any, lies at the bottom of the iris. That said, Dr. Shavers isn’t all that surprised by the procedure or that people are taking an interest in it. “When it comes to vanity there’s nothing you wouldn’t put  past the human condition,” she said.

Bottom line: Dr. Shavers doesn’t believe the procedure is worth it and she’d never consider performing it herself. “Colored contact lenses would be far less risky. You wont have any potential side effects and it will guarantee the color.”

I'm confused why anyone would go through all the research though...

Me too Salma. I think there are better things Doctor's should look into, rather than this.

Hello fellow bloggers, It's true it exists!! I was amazed as well when I heard about it! I wrote a post about the colour of your eyes to explain where does the color comes from etc and I indeed finished it by explaining how much and how this procedures is done.
