Yes, you read the title correctly.
When Shenise Farrell read on the internet about a £5,000 operation which could turn her dark brown eyes light blue, she wasted no time in heading off to Panama.
Less than two weeks later, British surgeons were battling to save her sight.
They had to repair a hole in her iris and remove implants. It is unclear whether she will suffer long-term damage – and her eyes are still brown.
‘It was the biggest mistake I have ever made,’ said the single mother of three from Perivale, West London.
‘To think I could have never been able to see my children again. It was totally reckless of me.’SOURCE
This is sad on so many levels.
Let me first say, I don't think it is wrong to wear colored contacts, it's all about motives.
I worked with this really dark-skinned Mexican guy who wore blue contacts everyday. I thought is was the most unattractive, bizarre thing for a "heterosexual" male to do. The other people of hispanic heritage there explained how he tried very hard not to be Mexican. He would even go as far as telling the spanish-speaking customers that he did not know spanish, when clearly he knew some.
This article begs the question, what was the motivation behind such a risky act.
She could have gotten the same effect with Beauty Supply store contacts. LOL They don't even look natural. Oh well.
I am really out of words. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. . .
