Have you always wanted blue eyes? You might have tried colored contacts or even just given up on the idea, but now all that can change! California-based optometrist Gregg Homer, O.D., has been researching a laser technique for the past 10 years that will permanently change brown eyes to blue. "The laser is tuned to a specific frequency to remove the pigment from the surface of the iris," said Dr. Homer to KTLA.com. "When the laser energy is absorbed by the body the pigment tissue changes and the body sheds the altered tissue." Thus exposing the blue colored iris that's underneath the brown pigment. The process itself takes around 20 seconds, but it will take two to three weeks for the eyes to change color completely.

While the procedure still has one more year of research before it's completed it should be available in the U.S. in three years, and will cost around $5,000. So, Beauties, would you spend that much money on getting blue eyes, or stick with what you already have?
