Turn Brown Eyes Blue Using Permanent Laser

Turn Brown Eyes Blue Permanent - A doctor in California at Stroma Medical says it is possible to turn your brown eyes into the color blue by using a permanent laser. Dr. Gregg Homer has been working on the technology for 10 years.

Homer says it is possible because most people have blue eyes underneath the layer of pigment.

“We use a laser, and it’s tuned to a specific frequency to remove the pigment from the surface of the iris,” Homer tells KTLA. The procedure to turn the eye color only takes 20 seconds. When laser energy is absorbed by the eye’s pigment, Homer says the pigment tissue changes and then the body sheds the altered tissue, changing its color within two to three weeks.

The brown tissue never regenerates. Homer says tests have shown no signs of tissue damage.

He still has another year of research to complete on the procedure. Researchers believe the procedure will be available outside the United States in 18 months, and in the U.S. in three years.

The cost will be about $5,000. “They eyes are the windows to the soul,” he says.

“A blue eye is not opaque, you can see deeply into it, and a brown eye is very opaque. I think there is something very meaningful about this idea of having open windows to the soul.” This is probably one reason to turn the color and it could be a permanent cosmetic feature.
