Using Lasers to Change Eye Color…
According to BBC News, Dr. Gregg Homer is developing a method to change a person’s eye color from dark brown to blue. The article states that under the layer of brown pigment is a bluish layer. By using lasers for 20 seconds to destroy the brown pigments, it is possible to gradually turn the eyes blue. This procedure creates effects that are not reversible, and little is known about the side effects.
I have heard that plastic surgeons often say that their patients should use invest in psychiatrists rather than plastic surgery, because people who get plastic surgery have higher rates of suicide than those who don’t. Should that apply to people who wish to permanently change their eye color?
Does this remind anyone here of a certain time, when a certain group of people, tried something very similar?
Would there be less of a racial connotation if the procedure could give eyes colors other than blue?
What would you think about a person who went through this procedure?
