Laser Turns Brown Eyes Blue

Want to turn your brown eyes blue? Forget contact lenses! Changing the color of your eyes permanently from brown to blue may be just a laser treatment away, according to one doctor working on the technology:

Dr. Gregg Homer at Stroma Medical in California announced on KTLA-TV that he had come up with a laser procedure that removes the brown pigment, known as melanin, in the iris. Once removed, the blue color underneath is revealed, giving the person blue eyes. Homer said the procedure takes about 20 seconds.

“We use a laser that’s tuned to a specific frequency to remove the pigment from the surface of the iris,” he told KTLA. [...]

“The eyes are the windows to the soul, [there's] this idea that people can actually see into it — a blue eye is not opaque. You can see deeply into it, and a brown eye is very opaque, and I think that there is something meaningful about this idea of having open windows to the soul,” Homer told KTLA.

Just wait until they can do it with a much finer dot-size and power-level.

At that point, you could probably get just about any color known to man, and a few not.

I think even green eyes are not actually a solid color when you look up-close.

Everyone will look the same right up until the aesthetic relativism movement, where we'll have abstract cosmetic surgery. That's when the world will take a turn for the weird.

In the movie Idiocracy everybody in the future is a total moron.

Leave it up to plastic surgeons and everybody in the future will also look exactly the same.
