Really? Who'd want to jepordize their eyesight when you can wear colored contacts. The procedure looks dangerous.
This is permanent, a local anesthetic is used, and it only takes about 30 minutes. The pictures look less fake than colored lenses. It is expensive though.
Had LASIK 11 years ago- best thing EVER! Simple, no pain, and could see (finally!) the next day.
Doing this for vanity...FUCK NO!
I had daisies done about six months ago. The yellow in the middle is sort of weird, but I get a lot of positive comments. I feel very pretty.
Why are the patients in the video so hideous?
I had it 3 years ago, wish I waited longer for the more natural implants they have. Maybe I will exxhange mine in the future
Can I get them with a mirror coating, like the old Silva Thin glasses?
I want to rock a cyborg look.
When the Dr cuts the lense, using the laser, destroying 2-% of the lense in order to reduce far/near sight...why is that nomal for any corp, or bank, or any business of our GOVERNMENT? This is FAR riskier than "normal" procedures.
If the government can have night goggles and wants to spy on or harass or kill- then making sure you have enough food and gold.
My eye doctor always says that you don't want to be first in line for any new eye surgery.
If you absolutely have to have blue eyes, wait a few years.
There is no eye color so ugly that you should risk your sight to change it.
Actually, there aren't any ugly eye colors. They all look good, if you know how to present yourself.
No, none of us is that pathetic.
I know a guy who had this done. He is Italian with darker skin tone (than caucasian) and changed his eye color to light green. It looks good, tho not natural. Everyone assumes he's wearing contacts.
There are an awful lot of photos of "brown" people with bright blue eyes in the patient photo section ( some of them look quite striking I will admit ).
I can understand it from the perspective that say, if you live in China and a billion other people all have the same eye color , you may want to stand out.
Quite honestly I think it is an extremely unnecessary and risky thing to do for vanity.
This sexy lady obviously comes from a part of the world where money is no object and a womens' eyes are about all she has to show the world.
The photo made me LOL !
Maybe it's me but the new eyes look fake to me because true eyes have variations in color. For example, mine are a mossy grey-green with orange brown and yellowish specks in them. I don't think I've ever seen anyone with just one color in their eyes. And the dark ring on some of them remind me of drawings of cartoon characters.
The eyes at R14 look like cheap-ass contacts because there's no variation in color. Natural light eyes have variations in color and a pattern to the iris, which is missing there.
The other reason contacts look fake is because the iris is actually somewhat recessed from the surface of the eye, there's a pocket of fluid between the iris and the cornea called the aqueous humor. If you put a contact lens over the eye, the colored "iris" is in the wrong place and looks unnatural.
I don't know where the procedure in question places the color, but it looks all wrong at R13.
I'm a surgical technician and I removed one of these implants from a patient today. The implant had induced glaucoma and he had lost 80% of his vision in one eye and 20% in the other. DONT GET THESE IMPLANTS!
Ick, all the "after" pictures look very artificial. The color is too flat; light irises always have some variation in color and darkness.
But then, I think these procedures are being done in parts of the world where there aren't many naturally light eyes around. Their customers aren't sweating the details.
I miss my colored contacts. I have green eyes and wore aqua lenses which made my eyes greener. Now I have to wear multifocal contacts and they don't come in colors.
Getting old sucks
I also miss long-term daily contacts. I would buy a pair of Ciba Soft colored daily lenses and they'd last up to two years. I'd take them out at night, clean and store them. I didn't wear them around the house, so on my days off from work, I just wore my glasses. Made my contacts last longer.
Now you have to buy disposables. Daily, weekly, monthly. Bummer.
Wow, I can't believe how people can't line up fast enough, to become guinea pigs. We won't know the repercussions of this surgery for at least 5-10 years. What if it causes loss of vision or worse blindness !!
