Now she’s warning others about the risky procedure.
People are changing the color of their eyes, permanently through surgery, Action News JAX reports.
The procedure is referred to as an iris implant, in which a surgeon places an artificial implant over the patient’s iris.
Now a young woman from California is sharing her story.
For months after the procedure, she said, she suffered physically and mentally. She has asked to remain anonymous.
She said she originally had the cosmetic procedure in Los Angeles to make her brown eyes green.
When she woke up, she said she had blurry vision in one of her eyes that progressively got worse.
