How much does it cost to surgically change your eye color?

No Lasers in the US
Changing the color of the iris
However, a company now has a laser that is in the process of seeking approval from the FDA to conduct clinical trials for just such a laser. Because the procedure is not even available yet in this country, and it's long term safety is not fully known, there aren't prices yet and patients undergoing treatment will be part of the trial. Our office is scouted to potentially be one of the study sites and the treatment will be to turn dark eyes lighter but cannot darken the color of the eye. Be on the look out because we are hoping to start the studies soon. Currently there are colored lenses that can be put into the eye, much like contact lenses, to change the appearance of the color but these are not safe for cosmetic uses (many eye problems can occur) and are reserved for eyes with Iris deformities.
I hope that helps and we're as anxious as you are to have a safe and effective way to turn brown eyes blue!
If you are considering using Latisse to create color changes in your eyes, I would recommend against it.
