Doctor Claims That He Can Magically Transform Brown Eyes to Blue via Laser Surgery

There is something about blue eyes that can pierce another person’s soul while also acting as a revealing window into your own. Brown eyes? Not so much.

What if you wanted blue eyes, though? Color contacts? Meh. Try this new laser surgery thatll permanently transform your brown eyes to blue.

Brown to blue, permanently. That’s what Dr. Gregg Homer from Stroma Medical in California says he can do. His Lumineyes procedure uses a laser tuned to a specific frequency to blast the brown out of eyes into blue. The process only takes 20 seconds too and it literally removes the melanin—the brown—from a persons eyes, which in turn reveals a blue color in 2-3 weeks (of course the blue isn’t real, natural blue eyes have lower melanin in the front of the iris—the blue color in blue eyes come from the same effect as to why the sky is blue).

Dr. Homer says he still needs about $800,000 to complete clinical trials and if all goes to plan, the procedure will be available in 18 months outside the US and 3 years inside the US. The process is expected to cost around $4,800. I can imagine many wannabe starlets getting this done right after a boob job.

Edinburgh University researchers develop artificial blood from bone marrow stem cells! 98% of people can receive (O-negative). Science win.

30 Oct

Researchers at Edinburgh University have developed a new type of faux blood that could be ready for human testing in as little as two years.

Their technique involves growing stem cells taken from the bone marrow of healthy adults into a new material thats very close to the red blood cells grown naturally in humans. Moreso, the artificial blood they create would be the rare, and highly sought after, type O-negative which can be used in 98% of patients.

And it would be guaranteed to be free of infections like HIV or Hepatitis. The researchers are confident that their process has been perfected to the point where clinical trials could begin in just 2 years.

But since their technique only produces red blood cells, they’d have to then work with other researchers to combine it with artificial hemoglobins before the artificial blood could become part of regular hospital use. A process that could take up to another 10 years.
