Getting blue eyes with a laser
Because of Dr. Gregg Homer, it will soon be possible to swap our brown eyes for blue.
The California physician has developed the ‘Lumineye Technology’ a laser that claims to turn brown eyes blue permanently.
Technically, eye color is determined by the presence of melanin (brown-black pigment) concentrated mainly on the front of the iris. The higher the concentration, the higher the color is dark. The blue iris have little melanin which is housed at the back of the eye, and therefore appears blue. With the laser, Dr. Homer burns the melanin in 20 seconds. The eye color will appear lighter, then blue after two to three weeks. Beware the operation is irreversible (melanin does not regenerate).
It could be available within several months at a price of 3600 euros. Of course, this is largely controversial by some professionals from the industry ...
And you what do you think ? For my part, I feel that we approach more and more standardization of the human being and say how awful !!
