Have any of you used BrightOcular iris implants to change the color of your eyes?

They don't list a price, but the internet says it's about $8,000. I wonder when this procedure will become FDA approved.

Really? Who'd want to jepordize their eyesight when you can wear colored contacts. The procedure looks dangerous.

by Anonymousreply 110/30/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 510/30/2013

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.

Implants? WTF!

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.

by Anonymousreply 911/04/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1211/04/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1411/04/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1511/04/2013

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!

by Anonymousreply 1706/10/2014

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

by Anonymousreply 1906/10/2014

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.

by Anonymousreply 2006/10/2014

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 !!

by Anonymousreply 2106/11/2014

hi here you can change the color you want at a competitive prices performed by Dr. Menif Montassar a world famous surgeon who performed the procedure of Tiny's eyes :)

Please don't do this, OP. If you can find and post a single picture of eyes that are ugly because of their color, go for it. But you can't, so don't. I'm sure your eye color is fine. There are gorgeous blue eyes but also gorgeous brown, green, hazel, grey, and Liz Taylor eyes.

I had it done to my cat.

What a stupid thing to do. Does it matter what your cat's eye color is? How vain!

by Anonymousreply 2812/26/2014

I just wanted to see who would be aghast that it was done to a cat but think nothing of vain human beings have shit jammed into their eyes.

by Anonymousreply 2912/26/2014

If it's like colored contact lenses, it looks good on a photo but totally disturbing in reality. I remember once speaking to a MTF transsexual flight attendant and the trans thing wasn't disturbing me at all but the fake contact lenses made her look like a lizard and I could not focus at all on what she was telling me. It happened another time with a colleague of mine who once showed up with contact lenses and I was so troubled by her "eyes" that I could not absorb a single word of what she was telling me.

I'm sure BrightOcular does the exact same fake fake fake effect. I also think that people who change their eye color dramatically must have something like body dismorphic disorder or self-hatred. Even Michael Jackson did not go there: probably the only thing he did not do to look more like a caucasian.

R28 is rather slow, isn't he?

R32 We certainly have more than enough racists, but that doesn't stop you.

Not sure why the faggot at R32 felt the need to say that, when a large majority of the people in the photos are white.


by Anonymousreply 3412/26/2014

R20, just keep the disposables clean and they last a long time. My weekly use ones I use for up to six months. It's all a scam.

by Anonymousreply 3512/26/2014

The long term potential for fatal eye problem from this procedure are immense.

I don't care what color you happen to be, avoid this procedure like the plague. This has been around for years in Asia and their experience is less than good.
