Permanently Change Your Eye Color?

When I think of changing my eye color, it never goes further than tinted prescription contact lenses. I’ve even heard of people tattooing their eyeballs. But I never thought there would be permanent eye implants out there such as those provided by Kahn Medical Devices.

All the scientific details can be found at New Color Iris, but basically this thing is a disk that is surgically implanted into your eye. Available in both blue and green, the results look fantastic, but I think I’ll be sticking with color contact lenses for the time being.

I am most happy with my results from haviong this surgery. I had brown eyes and went with the color blue since by dad has blue eyes.

NewColorIris is becoming a huge interest to many in California . It makes sense since everyone does cosmetic surgery there

i actually e-mailed new color Iris about pricing and all that good stuff. the person i got in contact with said it was $7500. also, the last time i looked the procedure wasnt approved by the FDA, so what i was told was that you had to have the procedure done in Panama. i dont know, sounds like a scam, but they have videos of the procedure.

I was wondering whether spencer could share will us whether light into his eye is restricted when he pupil naturally dialates . Does the implants make you look as if you have constantly constricted pupils or does the hole on the implant expand?

Yeah interesting that Spencer has not responded publicly to the questions…. has Spencer sent anyone a picture yet? ..also Spencer was the first person to respond to the article ….may not be kosha!

All sounds a bit suspect having to go to Panama

I also wondered about the pupil dilation.

Would love to know more about this, as my dad has blue eyes and mine are brown / hazel … I have always wanted blue eyes since i was a kid.

Anyone know anymore about this…is it available in the United Kingdom?

STACY said,

September 4, 2008 @ 3:15 pm

You have to have the procedure done in Panama because that is where Dr. Kahn is located. It’s not a scam at all. I have 2 friends who have done it and I am saving money to have it done as well.
It looks entirely real and they have not had complications as of yet.
They both started with dark brown eyes.
One had in done about a year ago and the other in late 2004.

This is the email I received from NCI.

Intraocular implants are made in the U.S. of FDA approved material, patients from the U.S. Canada and UK fly to have this procedure done by the inventor in Panama City. Procedure is made of the same material used in cataract surgery all over the world so the material is not something foreign and never used before. However our implants are also used for not just medical but cosmetic reasons. Patients in Europe travel to his facilities in Switzerland. Procedures cost is $7500 in usd currency . First step would be that I email you specific exams to be done by your opthomologist to determine if you are eligible for the procedure.

Ummm said,

October 2, 2008 @ 4:22 pm

ummmmm…….why hasn’t “Spencer” answered yet??????
Im so curious about the pupil dialation thingamajig…cause that sounds extra dangerous. Because i realise that when i go from being in the light to being in the dark(like opening a light switch in my bedroom during the night then turning it off)…my eyes take time to adjust so i can see in the dark and the same goes for everyone else…thus meaning ur pupils NEED to dialate to see in the dark…so if your pupils dont dialate correctly with this procedure then that meeeeeeeeeaanssss…….. You’d be a blind mice come dusk….thats pretty scary. Im actually considering having this done..I just need to the deal with that as wella s long term affects FIRST….so anyone with answers…PLEASE hit me up and lemme know.

Ummm said,

October 14, 2008 @ 8:47 pm

Yea I would…I’ve actually been doing a heavy load of research, and changing the eye color through means of lasers soundz more promising because it is then truly a permanent eye color change. tThe newcoloriris thingy just seems like inserting a pair of single-colored freshlook lenses in your eyes….not entirely permanent…its still lenses.

Hey Guys,

I was considering this surgery too. I went to see an optician who told me thta the idea was great, but you will have tunnel vision at night. She contacted an optical research centre here in CA where her friend works. her friend wrote to her back said he had been treating a patient who had this surgery done and had complications.

I emailed DR.khan about all this directly from his site. he never answered back even though we had been corresponding previously.

The US site is run by an ex patient and is totally independent of DR. khan’s site. Dr Khans site is http://www.newiris.de

Hey, I too am intrested in this procedure. Does anyone know about financing and the application process?. If anyone from the U.S that had this procedure done in Panama,can you tell me what were the travel arrangements like? Pass port procedure, location of the hospital, room and board. And above all.. who did you finance with? did you make a down payment? and do you pay after the procedure?. I have been quoted diffrent prices some people say its $5000, $7000 and $7500. When I got an email from Newcoloriris@aol.com-the corresponder qouted me $7995. Can someone tell me if this is correct?. I think thats a little steep for a 8 minutes surgery. Thanks!

Hi all,

I too thought about doing the surgery… It was also featured on the show the Dr.’s or Ask the Drs (don’t remember exact name)… and they brought an expert who has done over 3,000 eye surgeries and he did not recommend it. He said it was a very perilous operation that could cause long-term complications and severe medical issues with your vision. If you look at the show and may be find the archives you might be able to get more details. I’m so bummed cause I really wanted to go from brown to green eyes… but too afraid myself of taking the risk.

The results do look great though!

Asmital said,

March 15, 2009 @ 8:31 pm

Here’s the transcript from the show segment on The Doctors regarding the procedure with the eye expert’s comments:

Change your Eye Color Forever?

Mark, 32, always hated his brown eyes and wished they were blue. For years, he wore blue-colored contact lenses, even when just going outside to pick up his mail. After having Lasik eye surgery, however, he no longer needed contacts and wanted to find a way to permanently make his eyes blue.

He learned about the NewColorIris procedure, an intraocular implant offered only in Panama, which can permanently change the color of his eyes. The implant is a diaphragm that covers or dresses the natural iris and is inserted under topical anesthesia. Despite being warned of possible risks, he flew to Panama, had the procedure and is thrilled with the results. “There are risks with all surgeries, of course, but my best friend, she did the surgery and she had no problems. When I saw her eyes, I was like, ‘I need to get that done,’” he says. “Nothing was going to get in my way. I didn’t care about anything else; I just had to have it.”

Ophthalmologist Dr. Kerry Assil is opposed to the NewColorIris procedure, and feels the risks far outweigh the rewards. “The risk for this particular procedure is entirely unacceptable,” he says. “[Risks include] blindness, for starters. The shape of this product, the size of this product, the location that it’s placed in will eventually lead to cataracts, loss of the cornea, inflammation inside the eye and a severe form of glaucoma that will result in irreversible blindness.

“I don’t blame you at all for wishing to have different colored eyes,” Dr. Assil says to Mark. “I think there are lots of people who have that hope and ambition. I’m not at all happy with any physician on the planet who would forget that their first responsibility is to not do harm to their patients. This is a procedure that will never be approved by the [United States Food and Drug Administration] in its current form.”

One of my girl went to Newcoloris to get her eyes from dark green to light green, her procedure was on the 13th of March and it’s being 5days and she is still not seeing, hopefully on the sixth day she was supposed to be seeing clearly by the 6th day….
My girl and i are going to get our eyes changed from brown to blue….the ending of March…but first we’re waiting to see if our girl made it alright. We spoke to her on the 3rd day and she said she can’t see anything yet. The doctor from newcoloris said she will be able to see on the 19th of March…hopefully.
I’ll keep you posted, thanks

On March 19th, 2009 hugo says:
HI, i had my eye color changed in panama, about a month ago.
Unfortunately me and the other 2 people who had the surgery done at the same day are not happy with it.
It`s not as simple as they explain, eventhough the surgery is quickly done , but recovery isnt that easy, u get headches, and your eyes feel very uncomfortable, like u have sand inside of them for days, and besides that, ur eyes burn everytime they put the eye drops(3 different kinds), u have to, every hour for like a week, and there is one u have to apply 3 times a day for life time, that releases the pressure on ur eyes. It feels like putting alcohol in a cut for the first week, because the incision there is on ur eye.
But the biggest reason why we are not happy is because all 3 of us end up with an eye color there is not similar to any color they have on the after pics on the newcoloriris.com website.
When we asked what shade of blue or green it would be, we were told the final color shade would depend on the natural color of our eyes, wich isnt true because me and the other guy who had the surgery done to have blue eyes had very different colors, my eye eyes are naturally hazel and his very dark brown, we both end up with exact same blue, wich is so bright and looks like a halloween light blue aqua contact lenses. They look like blue eyes of a Japanese carton character So now we have the brightest blue eyes but they dont look natural, they look like something that no one ever seen before, kind like X-MEN eyes, at night in night clubs my eyes look like storm`s eyes from x-men. So now we are experiencing harassment when we go out, people stop us all the time and ask if they r ours? and when people get very close they dont c a contact, but yet the dont understand how it is possible, because most of the people never heard about this surgery they get very confuse! And the people who doesnt stop u, just presume they are contacts and dont really understand why u would be wearing something so unatural with so many quality contacts out there. ME and the two people are trying to get the doctor to reverse the surgery or get a shade that looks like the ones in the pics, but so far no sucess, he wants to us to pay another $2500 for operating room, and thats plus airline ticket $600 and hotel about $600 for the week u have to recover there! after we already expent $8thousand with the surgery plus another $ 2000 in traveling expenses. And besides all of us got different answers when trying to contact DR.KHAN, and all of them by email, he is never available over the phone. I do not recommend the surgery and i will be happy to answer any questions through my email perfeitinho21@hotmail.com. I was very stubborn on getting this surgery against my ophthalmologist opinion here in boston, after she discussed witha group of doctors, just because i always wanted to have blue eyes since i was a kid, bu now the “dream coming through” became a “living nightmare” None of us feel comfortable going out anymore! :(

OKAY people I have been doing research on this company and their process for about 3 months now. To make it plain for you all…the results vary due to the EXPERIMENTAL implants.

A cost effective method usually comes into play when attempting to produce a product that will appeal to the masses by becoming more affordable.

It is unfortunate for the hand full of patients that didnt have the opportunity to get the procedure during the clinical trial years. Whereby the information gathered from the initial results desired were used in the videos and studies shown on the site.

I too was interested in having the surgery, but after heavy consideration I have decided against it DUE TO THE LACK OF UNANSWERED QUESTIONS FROM DR, KAHN PERSONALLY!

April 19, 2009 @ 4:36 am

This is all so crazy damn it! Part of me really wants to get this done, but then I think of - what if I go blinde? It seems that so far there has been NO positive feedback from anyone that has personaly had the operation done. This is really discuraging!! I couldn’t stop thinking about the poor guy that had the operation done, and now has X-Men eyes, that’s fucked! Personaly I think we all need to just relax and wait for safer methods to be invented. I mean what’s the worth of getting this operation done is even 10 years down your blinde and not able to even see yourself in the mirror? Anyways for anyone in the USA or Canada still wanting to do the operation and is seriouly contemplating going to panama in say 6 months. Contact me I want to go with someone, to see the process and results, then maybe I can feel confertable doing it myself in the futur! Email me @ il_rico_420@msn.com

Good Luck to everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that me and my two girls had the surgery, It’s being a month old on April 20th…
The first week is painful and blury.
I’m doing great with my baby blue, I get more modeling jobs and felt self confidence about myself. About my two girls, they’re still experienced redness and blury…
I’ve heard lots of bad things about the surgery, .
I really love my eyes….The doctor was very nice and very professional.
I just pray that their is no complication in years to come, with surgeries, their is always consequences. I’m a mixed race of black and white with a dark brown eyes, which i never like, now i’m so happy with my new beautiful baby blue.
I’ll say in my opinion, if you’re interested in getting this procedure done, please go for it.
It is a very quick procedure and peopl were so nice, good luck ;
Thanks

I just wanted to let everyone knows that I am not geeting paid to be on this site. I love my new baby blue. The only problem was when i email the doctor or his Assistant, they don’t email anymore, which is very bad for buisness. Otherwise i do have my own doctor in the US to monitor my condition.
Also i do have to put eye drop in my eyes twice a day for the rest of my life. That’s my only concern, if you don’t have insurance, this eye drop will cost you $70…which will last you for about 3weeks.
If you have any question or wants to see my baby blue, please email me direct at browneye2bablyblue@hotmail.com

What the FUCK are you people thinking? Just stick to contacts. At least you can take those of. There is more risk than reward about this operation. If I was your doctor I would tell you that it is a load of shit and not worth a cent. There is a reason you can’t get in contact with this Dr. Khan. IT’S A SCAM. The FDA has not approve because they know it’s a operation. Whats the point of having blue eyes if you can’t see out of them?!!

Charlotte,

Thanks for sharing your story and video here on my site. I’ve just done a new post on the Latisse prescription eye lash lengther, but I think it’s fair to say that anything you do to your body through a medical procedure should be well researched and considered. I’m sticking with tinted and colored contacts.

Thank you all for being honest and making me think twice before having the surgery. Hopefully in the future they will improve this technique so that patients won’t have to constantly use eyedrops and experience redness. I first found out about this procedure in a magazine that claims doctors have made improvements in changing eye color, growing brand new teeth, cloning hair and invisible earing aides. Again thank you all for your comments. I had hopes in changing my eye color from brown to green and having the lower bags removed. I guess I’ll have to wait on the color change.

Please don’t get this procedure done, I got it for about a year ago and everything was fine till some weeks ago, I began to experience blurriness on my right eye and I decided to go to my ophthalmologist.
They said that this implant was localised on a very bad part of the eye and that the was it was inserted was very bad also. When it is inserted the dr that makes the procedure, dr. kahn in this case, damage a layer of the eye that produces cells that cleanse the cornea so it dont get misty inside. When this part is damaged the eye stops or produces a lower amount of these cells, and the cornea gets mistier and mistier….
He also said that once I get them out there is no guaranty that my eye will begin to produce these cells again as some people can repair this layer and some not…

Just dont get these implants, wait for this procedure to get safer and dont get it, they look really nice on me they look really really real but it is just not worth it, the getting blind for having nice eyes. I mean whats the point of having nice eyes if you cant see?

Also, the real iris can be seens sometimes as the pupil reacts to light, my real iris I could see till some weeks ago. The implants are dilating the pupil in a really really bad way and once I get them out there is also no guaranty that the pupil will go back to its normal state….

So people if you dont want to go through what a lot of people are going through, please dont get this procedure. When I got it there was no roadblocks, there was no “bad” stuff about this procedure on the internet. But now a lot of people are complaining and you should just listen to us. Get the procedure once it becomes safer, but for now dont get it… just dont.

You know who is the only one who needs this? Those people with NO eye color. You’ve seen them. Their pupils are clearly holes in the middle of the iris, and the iris is just, I don’t know, not so much gray as empty. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t ugly! It’s just noticeable to me, although many caucasians have it. I’m kidding when I say they “need” it; just being literal for emphasis.

I’m always struck by the lovely gaze of brown-eyed people, while light-eyed people seem a bit more non-descript. Colin Farrel. Look at that nut-brown stare he’s got. Light eyes would destroy that. Antonio Banderas? OMG.

I guess some eyes, if brown, are unspecial in their own right, where going to a bright pastel gives plainer eyes a striking quality via intense color. The eyes themselves, lashes, shape, brows, and the face, should be attractive in order for nut-brown eyes to look great.

But I don’t think so. I’m being mean up there to show you how mean you’re being to yourself. I say, never, never do a thing like this. It reeks of obsessiveness. You KNOW it does. You’re pretty just the way you are, I don’t care WHO you are, and you know that too.

Wow I am so surprised at all the negative feedback on this procedure..I didn’t think it was that bad. I am truely sorry for all of those who got the surgery and have not been the same and have also gone blind. It is a shame that you guys had to basically be he guinea pigs for somebody elses experiment. I think that all of you you who are now experiencing problems and those who know people who are should start a group against it or something. I don’t think anybody deserves that just for the price of pretty eyes.

For those who didn’t know about the aftermath now you know. And if you still decide to have the surgery thats on you and i iwhs you the best.

We all should wait until this method gets FDA approved to get it.

I did want it a point in time because I don’t like my eyes…of course they are brown.but before i get this I would also like more option for $8000.

I guess I just can’t “empathize” with what it’s like to not like my eyes because “of course they are brown.” My eyes are brown and I’ve never hated them or even half-wondered how I’d look with light eyes. Each of my kids had big shiny shoe button eyes with long black eyelashes, so this narrow aim of just “getting rid of my brown eyes” isn’t clicking. Is brown the only eye color anybody wants to “fix”? How often do you actually see “brooding violet” or “blazing sapphire” eyes or jade greed or emerald green ones? Most light eyes are not really blue, though their “owners” clain they are, and most green eyes are more “stubbornly declared to be green” by their owner than “actually green.” Whose eyes are really amber or golden? Hardly anyone’s, though once in a blue moon, you’ll see eyes like that. Are all people with not-brown eyes happy with their eye color just because they are so glad their eyes aren’t brown? Ever notice how pleased people are when they say, “My eyes are hazel!”? What for? Cuz they’re at least not brown?

Go there if you’re looking longingly at surgery on your eyes to “fix the color” so you’ll look more like those most celebrated for their BEAUTY.

Cut some slack for this person who is begging all of you to check out the YouTube testimonials and don’t, for Godsake, do this to your eyes, don’t put your eyesight and your life on the line just to fool people who see you into thinking your eyes are blue or green.

Your shrink will tell you to go ahead and do it, with a mild warning that you might go blind. Your shrink knows you too well and realizes the futility of trying to make you SEE. It’s too much work for him/her to try and fix you, save you, etc. You’re hopeless, if this is what you want to do, and even your shrink knows it.

If you search up stories or videos on Youtube you will see that most of the people who have had that same surgery are no happy with the results and are suffering. I suggest people stay away. If it’s not FDA approved, it means that the complications and side-effects drastically overcome the benefits (if any). Most of all, it means it isn’t safe!

The first thing that occurred to me is that the hole for the pupil is fixed, so naturally, or unnaturally, you’re going to have poor vision in lower light. The second is that the colors are flat with no variation of pigment. In other words it looks like what it is, a mono-hued piece of plastic stuck in your eyeball.
If you value being able to see don’t even consider this procedure.

I always wanted a different eye color.I have dark brown eyes and i wanted a more hazel/green eye color.But after reading up on this I was very interested in possibly getting it done.But there are too many problems and risk.I think people are better off the way they are if you have the possibly of becoming blind.But, I wonder why they don’t make contacts more like this, instead of how they do look if you have worn contacts before. That would be a good idea I believe. I think people would like that. Contacts that look more natural like your “real and/or true” eye color people would love. I just hate how when people get close to you and can tell they aren’t your real eye color. If they made contacts look like that, and people could not tell they were contacts, I would buy no dout about it. I wish it would. But unforcantly I don’t think that would happen no time soon.

Lumineyes said,

January 16, 2010 @ 8:26 pm

Does anybody have more information about the laser procedure called Lumineyes to lighten eye color? It was created by a doctor in California who has patented this procedure but it seems like he’s not doing anything with this. Maybe he’s had too many complications? I thought by now it would be offered to the public.

Gravatar

Lumineyes said,

January 16, 2010 @ 8:34 pm

I just came across this article from June 2008 from a business magazine called Fast Company in which they talk about the Lunimeyes procedure…
http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/127/made-to-stick-anchor-and-twist.html

Breakthrough technologies often need an anchor so customers can grasp them. Consider an innovation called Lumineyes. It allows people with brown eyes to turn them permanently green or blue. According to the product’s Web site, Lumineyes uses “a laser to heat the pigment layer [of your eye]. The process either bursts the pigment cells, resulting in the release of free pigment into the iris, or simply damages them.”

Um, great. Everyone who has been craving some good cell-bursting or pigment-damaging action, you’ve found your solution. Perhaps, Lumineyes can upsell a “savaging and plucking” package.

A Stanford MBA student named Rose Roll, who was helping Lumineyes with its message as part of a class assignment, suggested that the company anchor its innovation in LASIK, the procedure that permanently improves eyesight: Lumineyes is like LASIK for eye color. In fact, Lumineyes is less invasive than LASIK — it doesn’t require peeling back the cornea to allow the laser to do its work.

That was the right idea, because LASIK had already done the heavy lifting in the marketplace. You think it’s hard to sell your innovation? Try persuading people to sit still while someone shoots their eyeballs with a laser. Don’t refight that battle.

That’s why a good innovation story couples an anchor with a twist. … Lumineyes may anchor itself in LASIK, but its purpose is so different that it carries a powerful twist: It’s like LASIK, but it makes your eyes blue.

Can hot new company turn brown eyes blue?

Turn your brown eyes blue permanently.
Reserve everything from a kayak to a hot air balloon online.
Make young kids active and like it.

These are just three of the hot young companies that made their pitch at VC in the OC, the premier local venture investing showcase put on by Orange County Venture Group Sept. 17 at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach. One of the nice things about such a showcase is the glimpse it gives at some of the fun, creative and forward thinking going on in the neighborhood.

Here’s a sampling (I’m only linking to Web sites that actually have something to look at besides a placeholder page.):

Lumineyes LLC - OK, so you can change your eye color with contact lenses. But this Beverly Hills firm is working on a laser to permanently change the color of your iris.??It only seems to lighten dark eyes.
The technology??seems to work in rabbits but they don’t have brown eyes. The company thinks it can make $1.2 billion a year at $5,000 per procedure.

Lumineyes Can Cause Glaucoma said,

January 16, 2010 @ 8:54 pm

Okay, I just found an article at allexperts which is a reputable website with professional doctors and one said this Lumineyes procedure is very very dangerous…

http://en.allexperts.com/q/Laser-Eye-Surgery-3366/2009/7/Lumineyes-safety-2.htm

Laser Eye Surgery - Lumineyes safety

Expert: Dr.Manu C.Rajnani - 7/28/2009

QUESTION: I have a question for you about the lumineyes procedure, they use a protective pupil lens so the pupil is protected from the laser beam when zapping the melanocytes, if there is a protective pupil lens, then will the retinas get damaged, i have some more questions to, please e-mail me.

ANSWER: Dear ROLAND
Thanks for asking such elaborate and interesting question

EVEN if the pupil is protected with lens and even if the lasers now which we use are absolutely localised and focussed but the main problem here is not that it is the dispersion of the pigment or melanocytes which can cause lots of long term damage they will get lodged in trabecular meshwork causing secondary glaucoma which is silent killer or get deposited on undersurface of cornea causing corneal damage and loss of vision

If you any further questions please revert back to me

Tel: Mobile: 91-9821032072.

———- FOLLOW-UP ———-

QUESTION: So the procedure itself is safe? i know they want to elimate the melanocytes which are in the anterior border, however how much energy do you think the laser needs to not damage the non-pigment cells like the stroma, the cornea, the epithelium so forth.

ANSWER: Dear ROLAND
one can never quantify the amount of energy required to damage even one PULSE of laser can cause damage so it is better tobe safe than have problems later at the cost of damaging your vision

———- FOLLOW-UP ———-

QUESTION: So you think the procedure is a bad idea?

Answer
Dear ROLAND
YES YES YES

Wow, you guys. Just.. wow. The fact that you would even consider this is so dumb.

For one, placing a disk of some plastic material in your eye is by far the most idiotic thing I have ever hear of. You iris is a muscle, meaning it moves depending on the light. This piece of shit plastic disk doesn’t move a millimeter. hence, you will be blind when it it even slightly dark,

Also, think about it. You are placing foreign material in your body. It’s going to get infected.
I demand everyone to go to the tyra show website. And watch the video about the girl who had this procedure. Shame on you for promoting this horrible thing. That poor girl has a gaping hole in her eye now and will possible be blind.

DONT MESS AROUND WITH YOUR EYES. YOU GET ONE PAIR… ONE PAIR! MESS THEM UP AND YOU’LL NEVER GET THEM BACK.

Kahn is dangerous said,

March 14, 2010 @ 5:14 am

My close friend had this surgery done and he has lived to regret it…very deeply. He’s had a number of cosmetic procedures done in the past, but this one has left the deepest scars. Dr. Kahn’s reckless surgery has left his post-op eyes a dark black, the color of an open pupil. His US eye surgeons now agree that he will need to have one cornea transplant, harvested from a cadaver. He is currently recovering from glaucoma surgery and tube insertion into his eyes to drain pressure. He will never be the same again. He can see shapes, but no real detail. He will not be able to drive again. He must take medication for the rest of his life. If you lose your vision it is very hard to be independent. This all happened after one year and ten months after the permanent eye color change surgery. This is a very sad, true experience.

Any one considering this procedure please do your research. Please google Youtube. Search , “change your eye color.” for this procedure and view the damage done to past patients of this surgery. People who have had this surgery are trying to warn others not to do it. There is a reason this procedure is done in only one place in the world. There is one doctor who is preforming this procedure. Talk to eye and health care professional to find out why this procedure is not done in the U.S.

I am quite scared with allthe bad feeback, and really pray my eyes are still healthy. I can’t believe how irresponsible this Dr Kahn is. He aparently has lots of people around the world doing it in Switzerland and France.

You guys are out of your mind to think you want to go cut your eyes so you can have blue or green eyes. If you were not born with them then dont do it.

I personally know someone who went to panama to have her eye color changed. The implants collected calcium on them and had to be removed. This young lady is now permanently blind in one eye and almost blind in the other. The doctor was a butcher. Please anyone wanting to do this reconsider. You might go blind.

But after hearing all of those extremely sad stories about people going blind and stuff I wouldn’t even think twice about it!!! Thanks for sharing your stories with the rest of us its highly appreciated……

Hey I’m also considering this procedure, but the more information i get the scarier it is… I agree it’s kinda vain and such but it’s my body. That’s the point it’s MY EYE, so i’m wondering have the dr themselves done it? Probarly not, still I do want to get green/blue eyes other than my brown eyes.. Has anyone heard anything about Lumineyes? Instead of inserting silicon into your eyeball, it uses laser like lasik to lighten your eyes instead?

If you have any info please email me. That would be wonderful, castinli@aol.com.

Thanks!

It’s sad that in our society aesthetic beauty has been prioritized generally leaning towards anglo features being preferred throughout history as more attractive and more often respected. I’ve noticed this in regards to media, politics and various demographic entities ie: Blacks with green eyes, naturally straight or wavy hair, lighter skin, chissled/thin features (particularly nose and lips) being favored by teachers, and other blacks as well as the fashion industry.

These influences affect how people choose to see themselves and how they construe how others see them. It’s done as much as weight is used to project image. It’s unfortunate that we have prejudices which influence our interpretation of beauty but it is a reality for many regardless if we as individuals are color blind/non physically judgemental ourselves. As long as society continues in most cases to prefer skinny to fat, lighter to darker, slick to coarse, etc….some people will do whatever it takes to get an edge…and unfortunately again in many cases it does beget them who alter themselves some false sense of esteem.

I’ve met many people of different races that have expressed to me they were treated differently because of their features neg & pos. Those that were treated negatively all said they were or “felt” they were treated more favorably after changing their features ie: plastic surgery. I myself have noticed a night and day difference between the way I have been responded to before and after surgery. It does make a difference…but at what cost?

For those of u worried about the *tunnel effect* of the implants, it would b the same as with contacts. i have been wearing contacts since i was 10 or 11 and my pupils still adjust to the light fine, and contacts have a fixed pupil opening, but still for all of u who this the warning videos are bullshyt, check out the interview of this UK girl that had it done.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ec0q1eycm0c

talk about bein hella shady and sounding like an unlicensed/unprofessional. i kno hearing stories from random people, some people still wont care, but watch that vid and look (and hear) this girls story and seee how Dr. Kahn TORE A HOLE IN HER EYE with the needle while doing the surgery! and he doesnt even have a “office” to do the procedure its in a parking lot and in a door in the back of a building.

btw deposit is 3500 and they finance through Florida i think. the people that work there r kinda rude btw,

I was considering the New Color Iris,but heard theres this new lasik thing that changes the color of your iris and its going to be in the US (hopefully), and theres another procedure that is safer called Bright Ocular because the material is FDA approved. I know with any implantation there is a 20 to 30 % chance of blindness–and this is comming from a doctor off the show ‘the doctors’, But I still am going to change the colorof my eyes because contacts are lame. Leave comments people

I wonder if any of you have noticed taht these people show up in chats about new color iris to defend it and claim that they had the procedure…. then never answer questions of send pictures. New color iris has employees that comment in these chats so please don’t be fooled. If you go on youtube and view the ppl who had this procedure (then had the implants removed) you will see taht they don’t look natural! well, the green looks better than the blue (the blue is creepy!)

I know somebody who got this done and and saw it first hand, IT LOOKS SO FAKE, worst then a coloured contact, there is no dimension to it and when in day light you can see his real eye colour! When he use to be able to go out ( he can’t anymore because his vision is really bad now ) people would ask him all the time if he was wearing contacts and gave him really weird looks, not to mention that in bar/club lighting it looks gross like a glowing fungus almost! It’s very unnatural looking, trust me! Now this guy blinks all the time non stop can’t see at night and complains about constant discomfort! According to him the worst of it all is the reaction doctors around here first had when he went to see if he cold get them removed, they treated him like he was crazy for doing this and they didn’t seem to understand how getting this surgery is even possible and when he tells them he got it done in Panama they almost laugh in his face ( they don’t actually but you can tell from the whispers and look on their faces )! Doctors in Canada wouldn’t take them out so he had to go the the States to get them removed, they only did one at a time so he had to go twice and that was 14 000$ on top of the 10 000 he spent to get them in and all the meds… He will NEVER be back to normal physically or mentally… Anyways I am just here to let you about my experience with this procedure not tell you what to do! I wanted to get it done myself when I first heard my friend talk about it, all it took for me to change my mind was the sheer fact that when I saw him for the first time after he got it, it looked so bad and FAKE as hell and all that blinking like something is stuck in your eyes…

I always wondered how good looking I would be if I had green eyes with my skin color.
I have actually been waiting for science to catch up and invent something like this, since I knew that prescription contacts had been implanted since decades ago! and always wondered why nobody had come up with the idea of adding color to the contact that was beeing implated, so you could kill two birds with one stone.
When I ran into the newcoloriris website. I thought “bingo!” They finally got it, this is what I need, I’m packing!
I always do research about things like thins, I CANNOT thank you enough, specially to those who instead of being critical to people that wanted to explore the possibility of changing something about theselves, shared personal stories that really impacted our perception of this procedure. I admit it, I dreamed about my green eyes like for an hour (while reading the newcoloriris web site) but rigfh after - I read ALL of the posts on this site. Needless to say we have to wait for science to catch up to make this procedure safe and accurate -It is ok, no big deal, I think a cure for cancer is more urgent.
So life goes on… with my 100% fuctional brown eyes, and you know? I think they look nicer now - after I read the horror stories here… I wish you all happiness! and again thanks for sharing.. You are true heroes saving people from making wrong decisions.

with no pigment like albino eyes where you can lose eye sight
being in the sun. also zappingpigment cells clogs the aqeous flow increasing

gogle intraocular lens complications.

Its a matter of know the percent of complications
but no surgery is risk free.

1. Well for instance their website. The pictures uses on the website are stolen. See the page: Faqs The photo they used, a blue eye, is stolen from a website called: findcontactlenses.c. That building, on their site is photo shopped.
Further lenses placed in anterior chamber will eventually damage the cells in the cornea. Constant use of inflammatory products like prednisone. That’s what they give you.I bet the doctor is not a true one.(Hippocratic oat)
I went to Panama and me myself and others that day all experienced severe problems afterwards. Me i had within one year 2 Baerveldt drains placed due to eye pressure and 2 new corneas. I m broke due to medial and surgerys.37.ooousd so far and nearly blind.
Its just not possible anterior chamber lenses. Yes placing is quiet easy even for a med student but wearing them not! Where is that pseudo actor now? That shows on you tube Not seen him recently. He was in the believe it worked on him. Idiot he is now.
Its not sain to proceed and follow you’re deepest wish on this one. Jonas from Germany

I hear Brightocular is supposed to be better but i have not found a person/review who has had this procedures the pictures are too small on the site to judge but they look pretty good much naturaller than the panama.
But i’d never try these things until they’re approved by proper people. some day people they will discover something to change the eye colour safely - just be careful when going to these places the horror stories i’ve heard; kill me.
I just want grey/blue eyes so bad - blue eyes run in my family then my dad comes along with his dark brown eyes and spoils things :@

Good luck, Browneye2babyblue. You’re not the only one. This is a real surgery with real risks. Eye doctors are cautioning against taking them. See http://www.ajo.com/article/S0002-9394(10)00905-0/abstract

Guys,in my opinion, some of the posters here are real patients who tasted the bitter side a particular surgery and I do believe them. While others are simply competitors, perhaps coloured contact lenses sellers, who want to sell their products thus they try to put a dark shadow (bad name) on particular treatments…Medical treatments especially in the US and ESPECIALLY when it comes to plastic surgery is big business!

Kind said,

August 19, 2011 @ 4:25 pm

Now, from all the comments here and a research on the internet I conclude that some patients are really unhappy with the traetment offered by NewcolorIris. NewcolorIris involves inserting a coloured disk of ’silicone’ inside the eye. Which tends to be dangerous since there is a possibility to develop glaucoma (fluid blockage) and cataracts.

Now: There are other treatments other than surgeries which might be safer than what the NewColorIris offer.

1- Lumineyes offer laser eye treatment. People started to mention that their treatments will be available to the public since the 2007 but as yet there is no available information. Does anyone know any information about the availability of the laser treatment?

2- Eyedrops which lighten the iris. By lightening the iris are they refering to turning the eyes from brown to removing the eye pigment and so users will develop a red eye due to the deterioration of the pigment (lack of pigment in the iris causes users to show red blood cells at the back of the eyes like the albinos). Or by lightening the iris they mean that they will turn the eyes from brown to green?

All you people not happy with your beautiful brown eyes that are working perfectly. Why are you willing to risk your eyesight for an eye colour that is depigmented? Even if this laser surgery eventuates to get rid of pigment there will be a lot of eye problems. The eyes are so sensitive. Eye pigment is there for a reason. People with issues like this should see a psychiatrist. When your are older you will realise how stupid you are to even consider this. Be happy with your natural eyes that you inherited from your parents.

DO NOT GET NEW COLOR IRIS. NEWCOLORIRIS will make you go blind. A friend did it in 2008 and now is going blind. Lot’s of eye damage. I beg you not to do this. The doctor takes your money and when you start going blind will ignore you. He needs to be put in jail he is a con artist.

THIS IS NOT APPROVED BY ANY REAL EYE DOCTORS. REAL EYE DOCTORS SAY YOU WILL GO BLIND IF YOU DO THIS SURGERY.

WATCH THE DRS VIDEO TAPED IN USA ON YOUTUBE. IT’S A TV SHOW, THEY WARN NOT TO DO THIS
