Can I change the colour of my eyes

Can I change the colour of my eyes?

Tempting as it may sound, there is no permanent laser or any other procedure to change the colour of the iris, and if at all, it is done by destroying the natural colour or pigment of your eyes, with no idea of what its long term complications or side effects could be!

On the internet one may come across many claims such as tattoos and laser procedures claiming to do so, but as an ophthalmologist, one would caution you from such procedures. Since there is no permanent solution, any attempts may result in permanent visual loss or damage.

Please stick to coloured contact lenses, which are safer and more so as you can choose between so many colours. You have otherwise healthy eyes, so please keep it that way!
