Blacks Buy Blue Eye Surgery

Continuing my pandering to Blue-eyed madness, I am compelled to write about idiots/people who pay big money to have blue implants surgically inserted into their eyes. Yep, you heard me, inserted as in carved! I first thought that this could not be true, but after various aging relatives had lenses implanted to remedy cataracts, I thought I better do some homework.

The procedure for quasi-permanently changing the color of one’s eyes involves implanting a colored, optic-neutral, lens behind the cornea and in front of the iris. Knowing a bit about how the eye works (don’t ask how), the first thing I wondered was how this implanted lens would not irritate either the cornea or iris while being held in place to give the owner those factory-fresh baby-blues? It is this potential to obstruct these two parts of the eye that would contribute to damage and the body’s immune response, all resulting in complications of a blinding nature.

The implants, commercially labeled NewColorIris™, are available from a Panamanian eye surgeon, Delray Alberto Khan. It is critical to note that the Khan (ironically pronounced “Con”) cosmetic procedure is not approved anywhere outside of the third-world (where it seems authorities do not care if doctors butcher patients). It also seems that Khan’s patients/victims are fond of having those damn things removed pronto, in an attempt to save their sight. I found one patient who seemed to be happy, for now (here).

Interestingly enough, there is an eye surgeon in Beverly Hills, Kerry K. Assil, who repairs and replaces damaged or congenitally missing (here) irises, presented as medical conditions. Assil’s implants, while potentially changing eye color, also reveal themselves, by not obscuring the entire original iris. However, Dr. Assil’s location in Beverly Hills, is suspicious, as 90210 is also the mecca of the cosmetic surgery industry. It would not surprise me if Assil was padding his account by making blue eyes bluer, on the QT, but this is only conjecture right now.

Caveat Emptor. Let the buyer beware.

Note: A Blue-eyed fellow like the one in the picture had his NewColorIris(tm) implants removed due to complications, and removal only cost him $16,000! (here)

This ish is just dumb.
Black people with green eyes, light skin and/or straight hair are often teased as children by other Black kids for having these traits.
But then as adults many without these traits try to get them for themselves.

It's such a sad situation when we cannot be satisfied with our natural traits. Society created the opportunity to buy temporary replacements - but those are too much work. Technology and science create permanent ways to achieve these looks - so now people are willing to hurt/harm/kill themselves for it. I'd rather keep my hazel eyes - they're free and work just fine, than to pay for blue eyes that don't even work...

God, this is sickening.

I saw a couple of Japanese women in a store recently. They had obviously had surgery on their eyelids. But more: both had suspiciously large, prominent noses. I found myself staring unashamedly, trying to make up my mind as to whether this was plastic surgery or not. After a couple of seconds I said to myself, "are you an idiot? Of course this is plastic surgery."

While nowhere near as dangerous as iris color change, I found the effect crude and disgusting. Do these women think they are BETTER looking with large noses and startled looking round eyes??

I hope people don't think every black person with blue eyes had this procedure done. Some black people have natural blue eyes genetics are tricky anything can happen.

I am black and not light skinned and born with steel Grey eyes. When I turned 6,they turned a golden brown. I'm happy with my eye color. It is sad that some people don't like their beautiful brown eyes. But please know that the darkest of skin can have blue eyes and it has absolutely nothing to do with being mixed race. Google black people with blue eyes and click images and see for yourself. Oh and black people can have natural blonde hair too.

I totally agree! I am a black spanish woman with hazel green eyes. My grandfather eyes were bluish grey while both my parents eyes are a lighter brown. My niece has bkue eyes with skin darker than mine. It happens people. Why is it such a big deal for a dark person to have natural light colored eyes???
