Changing Eye Color

Post by Silverbackman » Fri Feb 23, 2007 9:38 am

Is there any way (besides wearing color contacts) to change the color of eyes? If for example you have blue eyes but want brown eyes can a plastic surgeon change its color somehow (by inserting some pigment, lazer surgery, or something)? Or vice versa, ect.?

Although eye color is determined by genes, I don't see why it isn't possible to modify them like someone modifies hair or lip color ;).

I have never heard of this. And i honestly doubt it is possible. If it were possible, all the hollywood stars would now have green and blue eyes :lol:

I dont think that's possible, but if it were...maybe it could be done by infecting the eye with a melanin killing agent? It would have to get passed the lysozome and other anti-cellular/bacterial agents in the eye though. Probly not possible but just an idea.

What you are saying that is not possible but 'Genes Can Change Eye Color' recent studies said. For more info check http://www.personalmd.com/news/a1997052701.shtml

This article is not eye colour being changed, it is changing naturally. Andrew didn't mean that that is not possible. He was talking about it being changed upon will.

I think they would have to mess around with hormones like melanin.
not safe :roll:
Some kids eyes change nturally during puberty.

I'm not quit sure of what they do, but there is such a thing as changing the eye colours of a soon to be baby by changing their DMA makeup. I havent heard of such method for adults.
