Have you heard of this newly developed laser that changes brown eyes to blue in only 20 seconds flat? It’s not ready yet, but is expected in the States within three years for just around $5,000.

The doctor responsible for this technology explains it like this: “The eyes are the windows to the soul. A blue eye is not opaque, you can see deeply into it, and a brown eye is very opaque. I think there is something very meaningful about this idea of having open windows to the soul.”

Hmmm.

What do you think? Would you ever try this procedure? I know a lot of people who wear colored contacts, but a permanent change seems like it would be an emotionally-charged decision, doesn’t it? Or do you consider it the same as any plastic surgery where original features are drastically altered? I’m outrageously excited about this discussion!

Thanks to Cool Hunting for this one.

P.S. Did you know that the gorgeous Kate Bosworth was born with Heterochromia? It’s the difference in coloration, usually of the iris, and it’s pretty arresting.
