With a noninvasive laser surgery, it is possible to change the color of the eyes from brown to green, blue or gray eye color. Cosmetic laser iridoplasty is described as a laser surgery procedure for changing the color of one's eyes. This procedure uses a special laser that selectively targets the pigment cells in the iris and alters their density and color. Unlike other invasive methods that may damage the eyes, this noninvasive laser procedure only affects the iris and leaves the rest of the eye intact. The most efficient way for changing the color of one's eyes permanently involves using a special iris selective laser that targets the pigment cells. This method activates the iris' dark-pigmented cells while reducing or eliminating the pigment density to produce iris clearance. It has been successfully used to change brown eyes into blue, green or gray eye color. The laser surgery procedure for eye color change is based on the principle of iris clearance. The iris is the colored part of the eye that controls the amount of light that enters the pupil. The iris has two layers: the stroma and the epithelium. The stroma is the outer layer that contains melanocytes, which are cells that produce melanin, the pigment that gives color to the iris. The epithelium is the inner layer that contains a dense concentration of melanin. People with brown eyes have a high amount of melanin in both layers of the iris, while people with green, blue or gray eyes have a lower amount of melanin in the stroma and a higher amount in the epithelium. The laser surgery for eye color change targets the melanocytes in the stroma and reduces or eliminates their activity, allowing the underlying epithelium to show through. This results in a lighter eye color, such as green, blue or gray, depending on the underlaying structure of the stromal fibers that make up the iris. These fibers can scatter light in different ways, creating various shades of green, blue or gray. It is important to note that the patient cannot choose their eye color with this procedure. This procedure makes the eye color lighter, such as green, blue or gray, depending on how the underlaying stroma fibers of the iris scatter light trough the tyndall effect. During the procedure, a frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser (532-nm wavelength) is used to raise and lower the temperature of the anterior iris pigment 15 times in 30 seconds. The laser treatment causes photo thermolysis, which stimulates the anterior iris pigment, and cytokine and macrophage responses resulting in pigment removal through the vasculature, revealing the underlying stromal fibers of the iris. From a safety standpoint, it is important to note that the pigment is carried away by the vascular system; it is not released into the anterior chamber, where it could clog the trabecular meshwork. Laser eye color change surgery takes 8 days to complete, with one 10-minute laser session per day, and an eye exam before the surgery to make sure the patient is a suitable candidate. This procedure consists of one laser application every day lasting 10 minutes, and it will gradually take three weeks after the procedure for the treatment to take effect. The benefits of this procedure are mainly cosmetic, as it can enhance the appearance and self-esteem of the patient. The risks of this procedure are minimal, as it does not affect the vision or the health of the eye. Some possible side effects are mild discomfort, redness, swelling or inflammation of the eye, which usually subside within a few days.
