Doctor Claims He Can Permanently Turn Brown Eyes Blue

Dr. Gregg Homer is an optometrists with a unique proposition for people with brown eyes, why not turn them blue? The Laguna Beach doctor says he has been working on his procedure for more than a decade with results finally ready to be shared.

According to the doctor his laser technology is a permanent switch that causes no damage to a person's vision or eye tissue.

Speaking with KTLA Dr. Homer says the laser is “tuned to a specific frequency to remove the pigment from the surface of the iris.”

Because everyone has blue eyes underneath their brown eye pigmentation the doctor says anyone can have blue eyes.

The procedure isn't cheap with an expected cost of $5,000 even though it only takes 20 seconds to complete and Dr. Homer hopes to have the procedure ready for use in the United States within three years.

Would you be willing to pay $5,000 to turn your eyes blue?
