You want to be a blue-eye?

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

LON­DON: From wrin­kles on her fur­rowed fore­head to the tips of her un­sightly toes, cos­metic surgery to­day holds out the prom­ise of chang­ing al­most ev­ery as­pect of a wo­man’s body.

But there has been one prom­i­nent fea­ture no nee­dle or scalpel could al­ter: the colour of her eyes.

No amount of envy or sur­gi­cal in­ter­fer­ence could turn a brown-eyed Cather­ine Zeta- Jones into a blue- eyed Cameron Diaz with­out the aid of tinted con­tact lenses.

Un­til now, that is. For Cal­i­for­nia- based com­pany Stroma Med­i­cal has patented a con­tro­ver­sial tech­nique that uses a laser beam that they say can trans­form brown eyes to blue in just a few weeks.

The com­pany’s founder, Dr Gregg Homer, who has a PHD in bi­ol­ogy and is, in his own words, “an in­ven­tor rather than a med­i­cal doc­tor”, says the tech­nol­ogy is safe and will change the lives of thou­sands of peo­ple for the bet­ter. – Daily Mail
