A scientist in California claims that he’s developed a simple procedure that can change brown eyes into blue eyes. A specially-tuned laser is used to destroy the brown pigment melanin in the iris. The procedure is still in the testing phases and, once it’s available in the United States, it could cost as much as $5,000.
I’m going to let Whitney Houston express my immediate reaction to this:
Yes, I have brown eyes so I’m biased. I’m going to take personally this idea that people with brown eyes would prefer to have blue eyes. Why?
I don’t have anything against blue eyes. Blue eyes are lovely. My mother has light blue eyes full of light and life. Both of my children inherited their father's eye color and, depending on what they're wearing, their eyes change like the sea from blue to green. I love hot guys with dark hair and ice blue eyes.
Sure, we all have things about ourselves that we’d like to change. We dye our hair, we work out, we tan, we put on makeup, we shoot our faces full of Botox and collagen and God knows what else (OK, we don't all do this). But using a laser to change your eye color? Stop the madness!
So this is for all you brown-eyed beauties out there. Brown eyes are amazing. Don’t let anyone make you think otherwise.
More importantly, so would George Clooney. The world’s best bachelor (don’t even argue with me about that) definitely has a type. His only marriage was to a woman with brown eyes. His last three girlfriends have all had brown eyes. If brown eyes are good enough for George...

Side note: George also likes big breasts.
Those will run you about $3,000.
When I was growing up, my sweet Granddad, the wise and wonderful Wesley Bickers Sr., would ask me, “Who has brown eyes?”
“You do!” I’d say.
“Who else?” he’d ask.
“My daddy does!”
I wouldn’t trade my brown eyes, this link to my dad and to my late granddad, for anything in the world.
