Have you always dreamed of having a nice pair of blue eyes, but were you born with dark eyes? A Californian doctor patented and developed a method that can change dark eyes to blues (forever) in just 20 seconds.
How does it work?
The procedure of Dr. Gregg Homer, optician at the Stroma Medical Institute in California, is called Lumineyes technology e it is based on the use of a special laser to remove the brown pigment (melanin) from the upper layer of the iris. Once irradiated by the laser, the eye slowly changes from brown to blue in a couple of weeks (in the photo there is an eye treated in an intermediate phase of the transformation). It seems to work really well, except for the fact that it is irreversible: once it is gone, the pigment can never come back.
The procedure is being tested on volunteers: within a couple of years, machinery could be on the market that, at an estimated cost of around € 4000, will give you the ultimate thrill of cosmetic surgery: a change that will make you look at the world with really different eyes.
