Dana dares to ask…I read your article about the eye drops that makes your eyes blue. But my question is kind of the opposite. I don’t want to make the colored part of my eyes more blue, I want to make the white part whiter. Is there anything that can do that?
The Right Brain responds:
You could use a product like Visine to “get the red out.” But if you REALLY want to make your whites whiter, you’ll need a more drastic solution like surgical eye whitening. Yes, that’s right. You can now have your eyes surgically whitened.
According to Inventor’s Blogspot, this procedure was developed in the early 1990s by a Korean doctor and since then about 13,000 people have had this operation. The process involves removing the outer eye membrane hat contains dark veins and other discolorations that make your eyes look dingy. After a few weeks, a new, clear membrane grows in it’s place so you’re left with a new bright, white smile. Uh, I mean bright white eyes. Apparently, the entire ordeal only takes about 20 minutes per eye.
If you’re interested, here’s the website for the Boxer Wachler Vision Institute, a Los Angeles based clinic that specializes in this procedure. And it goes without saying that if you’re traveling to California for this operation, you should fly the Red Eye special. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
