has anyone ever done this? or seen someone that has had it done it?

id like to do it myself but im a little sketched about the details... i dont know if your sasposed to put the food coloring in the contacts then throw them in your eye... or if your just sasposed to dye the contacts over night time or something and just wear those so your eyes arent actually dyed...??
safe? yes?

anyone??

This should go on eyes in each other.

I've never heard of that. If you mean coloured contacts, I would like to get some, but my normal contacts are good too. I like my eye colour cause it's different from most people's.

I saw something about this on the news a while back. It's really dangerous and really really stupid. Who gives a :love::love::love::love: of what your eyes look like? I'd rather be able to see, personally.

I would try Kool-Aid. Kool-Aid is the answer to all of life's color problems.

No it shouldn't.


I'd rather use contacts then dye my eyes.

Dying your eyes? That's gotta sting. Besides, I wouldn't want to, my eyes are a nice dark brown (but in photos black) colour. So yeah.

Don't do this. Just shell out the money for real colored contacts. This sounds dangerous and really, really stupid.

I'd rather wax my face than try something like this. Good luck, dude.

Ouch!

I want color contacts, but I'm not about to go and do something like using food coloring. I don't understand how others can be stupid enough to even consider that. Have they no common sense.

Though changing my eye color would be fun ("It says I have blue eyes, but I want gray eyes."), I'm not about to pay the extra money for it. It's twice as expensive as my normal contacts. My mom pays for my contacts, and I'll have to pay the difference for the color contacts, and I'm not paying an extra $20 a box.

Do not be dumb enough to do this. Get colored contacts before you go around risking blindness.

Good Lord, I'm stunned by the fact that anyone would be willing to try such a dangerous thing with such an important body part. Mengule used to try to dye the eyes of the people he tortured to see if he could manfacture Aryans.

Just... gah. Don't risk it. This thread makes my head hurt.

Are you serious? Just dump fluids into your eyes? Sorry, no offence, but that just sounds foolhardy.

i would just go with colored contacts. it sounds alot safer than "dyeing" you eyes...i wouldn't do it. but that's just me. I love the color of my eyes...they are normally grey/blue but when i'm outside or in certain light they turn the color of the sky... :)

The insane risks far outweigh the positive aspects of the treatment.

Oh oh oh, they're tinting their contacts. For a minute I thought people were dripping the stuff straight into their eyes. That's a scary thought.

...They aren't, are they? I don't think I could stand that.

Why don't you convince your optometrist to give you the real stuff? It's used for marking out the contours and venules/arteries in your eyes.

unfortuntetly i was blessed with 20/20 vision thus have no need for contacts from my doctor.

well people deciding frmo all ur negative feedback here... i think i might as well just go with the colord contacts... but they will have to wait till i get my tattoo first :mad2:

Yeah he is right. You might wanna bleach them first so the color is more intense. ;)

Or you could tattoo eyes on you eyelids, it would freak people out.

You could also tattoo a mona lisa-esque smile on your mouth! now that would be rad!

They're putting the dye into their contacts, and then the contacts into their eyes, which is almost as bad.

metro, what did you expect everyone to say? This method is dangerous. You could get infections and quite possibly lose your vision permenantly. And you dont have to have bad vision to wear colored contacts, they make versions that merely have the color.

I think when I was younger my eyes were red...but only because of a freak accident that poked a hole in the eyes and blood rushed into them. Fortunately the eyes came out as good as before.

Eyes are the only, or one of the few, organs/body parts that you can replace with just about anybody's, unlike kidneys where there are obvious complications. So go see a doctor or something...maybe they can help replace your eyes with someone else's.

I HATE having brown eyes and have always wanted blue eyes, but I would never be willing to take such a risk.

Never, ever do anything to your eyes without medical approval. Especially not something that sounds permanent, like trying to recolour your iris. Experimentation is the worst, most painful way to find out what not to do.

Always seek the advice of a qualified professional on any matter like this.

In other words... DO IT!!

Contacts seem to make more sense to me.

If i could be bothered to buy em, i think i'd go for emerald or sapphire

Normal contacts would be so much safer. I'd like really DARK green eyes but i've got boring brown ones.
