1 Would You Change The Color Of Your Eyes? on Sun Feb 21, 2010 6:35 am

Would You Permanently Change & Lighten The Color Of Your Eyes To Make?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

A controversial surgical operation carried out in Damascus to change the colour of a Syrian woman’s eyes has raised public fears about the safety of cosmetic surgery in the country. The surgeon who performed the operation, Mohamad Shoujah, said the procedure that replaced the unidentified patient’s brown irises with artificial green ones was revolutionary. He told a packed news conference at a hotel in Damascus in December that the surgery could be used not only for cosmetic purposes but also for the restoration of irises damaged as a result of an accident, a birth defect or a tumour.

“The operation consists in removing the iris and doing an implant of a totally new iris. The new iris is made of synthetic fibres. The difference between similar operations that are performed around the world and this surgery is that it removed the entire iris and replaced it with a new one, while other operations do a partial implant or place a new iris above the old one,” he said at the news conference. But the operation, which reportedly costs 17,000 US dollars, quickly drew fire from the medical profession in Syria, which believes it to be very risky.

Following the news conference, Syrian health minister Rida Said suspended Shoujah’s licence to practice and expressed scepticism about the surgery. Although the surgical procedure was known in the western world, it was not performed on patients because of the high risks it involved to the eyesight, he told the official Tishreen newspaper. Said said he would investigate the case, setting up a team of eye surgeons to examine the condition of the patient and check whether the operation had damaged her eyes. He said that the doctor and the medical facility where the surgery was carried out would be punished as a deterrent. Shoujah has not commented since the news conference.

Medical experts criticised the surgery because they said it exposed a completely healthy patient to unnecessary risks. “I believe that this operation is a crime because it removed a perfectly good iris and not an infected one,” said Saker Saker, an eye surgeon and a member of the committee tasked with checking on the patient. “It is certain that the patient will be subject to many risks like higher blood pressure on the eye and acute infections,” he said, adding that it remained unclear whether an artificial iris would allow a person to have normal eyesight.

So far, no conclusions have been reached regarding the surgery because the patient refuses to be examined by the ministry-appointed medical team, Saker said. The patient originally told one news website that she wanted the operation simply because she was fed up with wearing green contact lenses for 15 years. But since the controversy, she has refused to speak to the media. Critics said that the incident typified Syrian society’s obsession with plastic surgery, which has grown considerably in popularity in recent years.

The health ministry says it receives more than 30 complaints a year about botched plastic surgery or medical complications arising from it. Critics accuse the authorities of turning a blind eye not only to the standard of plastic surgery in the country but also to the widespread sale of untested beauty products, such as for breast enlargement or skin bleaching. Health minister Said in his statement vowed that authorities will put an end to the promotion of beauty products and operations that are presented on TV in the guise of medical treatments and could pose health risks.

“We need to hold accountable all those who hide under a doctor’s cloak to make profit at the expense of citizens,” he said. Last year, the ministry banned the sale of many beauty products because they were associated with health hazards. One of these products, a cream for removing freckles, proved to contain high levels of mercury, an element harmful to the body’s nervous system. Nevertheless, many such products are still readily available on the Syrian market.

Alizee love

Well speaking from a psychological view, I do believe this man has some serious image issues. I would not say he suffers from body dysmorphic disorder,that's more of a somatoform, but something went wrong during his stages of psycho-sexual development. It cold be something as simple as a parent making a joke in jest but what people fail to realise is children,at early ages, see their parents as the center of the universe and all knowing, therefor if aparent makes fun of someting, skin for example, the child may believe there really is something wrong with them. The way it manifests itself differs from person to person but I would not be surprised if something similar to that happend in his hildhood.

Regarding tyra, I like her and she really does not need to study psychology to be a talk show host, unless she wants a phd like moi lol,but it would benefit her to read up on the subject of that days show. Naomi is a pretty woman but the years of never eating have clearly taken its toll on hr as evident by her using cell phones as weapons.

To getback on topic, I have light hazel colored eyes and I would not go through an unecesarry invasive procedure on the off chance it works and does not leave me blind. Now this woman is an example, depending on her symptoms, of a person suffering from body dysmorphic disorder.

If anyone wants to know I couldpot the symptoms and affects in another post

That would be really useful to make a thread on the condition Alizee love.

I 100% agree that even a small remark from a family member can have a great impact on how we view ourselves. And half the time the person making the remark does not even realise that their words have had such consequences. I am so aware that words can be very powerful and I am mindful to always praise and encourage my nieces and nephews and always shower them with compliments. I think it is very important to instil confidence from an early age.

No. Exclamation

There's a guy in Turkey performing a similar operation for much less. There's no way (even if they pay me!) that anyone is peeling back my corneas & scraping out my irises! No,non, nyet forget it! That sounds sooo risky & irreversible should something go wrong. I'd love a certain shade of blue eyes, but I'm not willing to risk going blind in order to get it.

coloured contacts scare me never mind anything else. You are a "braver" person than me if you decide to go down either route. And that guy in the video has some real issues. I would love to know how his life is today and whether he has learnt to accept himself the way he is or has done something really drastic to be someone else Shocked

32 Re: Would You Change The Color Of Your Eyes? on Thu Jan 13, 2011 2:26 am


oh my gooooodness!!! ofcourse id love to have a diferent eye colour to match my cat-eyed shape. i want to have hazel eyes

stay blessed everyone

33 Re: Would You Change The Color Of Your Eyes? on Fri Jan 14, 2011 1:26 pm


There would have to be some sort of guaranteee,at least 100,000 previous users who had applied it for more than 10 years with no adverse reaction and even then I still wouldnt be be quick to try it. Just the thought of the possibility of blindness. I saw that lady on a plastic surgery disater show and I thought it was utter madness what she did. She is lucky that a UK eye surgeon was able to rectify the damage.

I would love to have lighter eyes. My eyes were lighter when I was younger actually. I am sure I read that eating a certain diet can lighten the eyes
