Don't You Make My Brown Eyes Blue!

Laguna Beach doctor Gregg Homer has developed a new procedure that can actually convert brown-colored eyes to blue in just a matter of weeks.
Right. There are probably people who are vain enough to let some putz shine a laser into their eyes in order to change their eye color. Since the side effects might include some very bad things, this strikes me as being a Very Bad Idea.

But then again, I'm the sort of who sticks with glasses rather than let someone try to reshape my eyeball. Because, who knows, maybe I might want to do some high-altitude work. Although the doctors who push LASIK say that there is no problem with that, it's not their eyeballs. I've only two of them and suitable replacements are not yet available. I fell that I should only muck around with my critical systems for critical reasons.

Don't know what it'd do to a biometric iris scanner, though.

And now in the DC area, one of the eyeball shapers is advertising for "volunteers" to undergo the testing of some new laser procedure/equipment. The "exam" is free and "if you qualify," you get the treatment at a reduced price.
Talk about medical risk - - and you will have (possibly) signed your sight away and paid for the privilege.
