[CBS] Laser procedure turns brown eyes blue, scientist says

The key to the procedure is a specially tuned laser that destroys the natural brown pigment melanin in the iris, the eye's central colored portion. The laser treatment takes about 20 seconds, with the color change occurring gradually over the next two to three weeks.

I wouldn't mind trying this if the procedure can be proven safe.

I don't believe so considering all other colors have a variable amount of melanin in them. Blue has the least.

This procedure doesn't sound too safe....

Something about the word "destroy" in a sentence talking about the human eye does not go well.

what if you have blue on the outer edge and brown on the inner edge. blue-brown hybrid eyes FTW

People with sensitive blue eyes are more sensitive to sunlight since melanin protects the eyes from UV rays and light. Blue eyes have less melanin.
