Why risk blindness for this?

    These people are placing fixed apertures over their irises? They are dumb and will at least get cataracts if not go blind completely over time.

    For some reason out of all of the possible cosmetic procedures this one seems the most fucked up to me. Probably because I see it so jarring to the ingrained identity of a person.

    Slightly disturbing and slightly awesome at the same time. Though I'm not surprised that something like this exists at all.

    I've always been leery of physicians touting cosmetic procedures as the one that "everyone has been waiting for." Given the novelty of this procedure, one cannot reliably know the long-term risks and failure rates at this time. There are other ways to change iris pigmentation (e.g., side effects of Latisse, colored contact lenses, etc.) However, these methods also carry their own risks. In an ideal world, patients would just be satisfied that their vision is intact and not worry about the color of their eyes.

    Eye color is such a minute thing to be so insecure about.

    1. Most un-sexy accent ever on that clip

    2. There's footage there from 2002 ... wtf?

    3. I want some famous person to get this procedure and subsequently go blind, then fund research into correcting blindness, and thus saving millions of poor people from a world of darkness.

    this site is a joke. they never even mention where they're located or who the "doctor" is. also, why only green and blue eyes offered? why no black, brown, hazel, grey or pink? lol.

    seriously, i usually don't hate on someone who wants to physically alter their appearance (hell, i go to the gym 4x a week to alter mine). however, if you trust a healthcare facility with a website like this, i would suggest seeing a therapist instead of a plastic/opthalmic surgeon.

    Really?
    I feel the opposite.
    "What color are my eyes?" is the classic 'do you really pay attention to me' question.
    No one notices anyone's eye color unless they make a point to, and are right up close. In fact, if you're talking to your friend they generally have to describe it if you want any details.

    It seems ridiculous to me only in being such a obscure trait that I can't imagine letting anyone near my eyes simply for a color change (if there even are such procedures). icon_neutral.gif
    (Unless the color change improved eye health, blue eyes, for example, tend to be less healthy and, more relevantly, have different dynamic range owing to more reflected light than darker colored eyes.)


    [Edit: Getting just one eye changed would be cool. David Bowie style.
    Personally, I think I'll wait for cybernetic eyes with built in zoom and alternate spectrum sensitivities. God I want that so much!!!!!]

    Hahahahaha.
    You're so cute.
    Poor people, globally speaking, live blind due to diseases as simple as congenitive cataracts, which can be easily corrected surgically even into adulthood.
    The fantasy fancy surgery wouldn't help them much more than the ones we already have.
    So cute! icon_lol.gif

    [Okay, going to go try and do something useful now. icon_confused.gif]

    OMG! the clinical trials are in being performed in my country... the city of knowledge is a big research campus. I think if it's only for cosmetic reasons this procedure shouldn't even be a topic to research.
