Now get blue or green eyes without lenses

Soraya (name changed) from Iran was not very happy with her natural brown eyes. But the 20 something now flashes startling green eyes.

All this is thanks to an Indian doctor who is among only four doctors in the world to conduct a procedure that permanently changes the colour of the eyes. So, it is goodbye coloured lenses.

Like Soraya, there are more than 50 people from several parts of the world who have flown to India to get their eye colour changed from Trichi (Tamil Nadu)-based ophthalmologist Shibu Varkey. Varkey is the only surgeon in India who performs the iris implant that permanently changes the colour of the eye. The other three are based in Mexico, Lebanon and Turkey.

Medically called the Brightocular Iris Implant, it takes over an hour to perform.

Under the procedure, an artificial silicon lens with the colour of the patient’s choice is placed on top of the original iris. It costs about Rs.450,000.

‘Since I started in February last year, I have carried out 60 such operations. Of them, only 10 are from India, the rest are from different parts of the world,’ Varkey told IANS.

Varkey is associated with the Vasan Eyecare Hospital and also travels to other parts of India if his patients so require.

‘I started the iris implant for medical reasons. I came to know about brightocular implant online when I had to treat a boy with a damaged iris,’ Varkey said.

‘The process of implanting the iris for medical purposes was done earlier too, but with the brightocular iris implant, the cosmetic reasons have been on the rise,’ Varkey added.

Among his 10 Indian patients, eight had the procedure performed for purely cosmetic reasons, he said.

Varkey said he has performed the procedures on patients who had come to him from Iran, Israel, Kuwait, Britain, Mongolia and Japan, among other countries.

‘It is a permanent procedure and there is no need for anybody to change it every month. However, if anybody wants to get back to the original eye color or even put a new colour, it is possible through another surgery,’ Varkey pointed out.

He said most of his patients are models or people in showbiz.

‘Mainly models and those in show business have come to me for this procedure. Interestingly, many Asians in the UK and the US also want to change their eye colour so that they can mix with the local population,’ the eye surgeon said.

Though Varkey claims no side effects, the iris implant is still not permitted for cosmetic purposes in the US.

‘It is not banned in the USA, but one requires to get a three-phase approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). At present, the approval process is in the third phase of the clinical trial,’ Varkey said.

It is not just about changing the colour of the eye; one can also have designs and pictures drawn on the silicon implant.

‘A patient can choose from colours such as smokey grey, amber, light gray, new turquoise green, new sea green, baby blue, olive green and many more,’ Varkey said.

The surgery however cannot be undertaken by any and every one. A thorough eye-checkup has to be done for determining the eye pressure and the number of endothelial cell in the eye, and a careful study of the retina also has to be undertaken.

‘For about a week the patient has to take care of the eye. They have to wash them regularly and also have to use eye drops for almost a month. I also make sure that patients test their eyes every two years and send me the reports,’ Varkey added.

One of Varkey’s patient’s, Kim (name changed) said : ‘I am very happy after getting blue flower design on my eyes. Now, I look cool.’

CM award for city eye hospital

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa handing over the best private employer award for providing maximum number of employment to differently abled persons to Dr. C. A. Nelson Jesudasan, Director, Joseph Eye Hospital, Tiruchi, during the Independence Day celebrations in Chennai.

Joseph Eye Hospital in the city has been presented with the ‘best private employer’ award for providing maximum number of employment for differently abled persons in the state.

The Chief Minister Jayalalithaa handed over the gold medal and a citation to Dr. C. A. Nelson Jesudasan, director of the hospital, during the Independence Day celebrations at Chennai on Thursday.

The State Commissionerate for the Welfare of the Differently abled, had selected the Joseph Eye Hospital for its exemplary service to the visually challenged.

A press release of the hospital said that differently abled employees comprise 12 per cent of its workforce which includes 8 persons with visually impairment, two persons with hearing impairment, nine with orthopaedic impairment and five mentally challenged individuals.

The visionary founder Dr. Joseph Gnanadickam, established the eye hospital way back in 1934 which was handed over to the Tamil Evangelical Lutheran Mission in 1962.

He also sought alternate means of a renewed life for the incurable blind. He founded centre-based institutions like the school for the blind at Puthur as early as 1952 and the Bishop Diehl Rehabilitation Home in 1967. In 1969, in close association with Christoffel Blinden Mission, a like minded organization, the rehabilitation services were extended to the disabled in community.

Joseph Eye Hospital, besides providing ophthalmic services, has been unique in rendering comprehensive and integrated rehabilitation services for the disabled.

Among those employed some are integrated into the regular eye care operations and the rest are provided residential job opportunities in producing items utilized for the eye care beneficiaries at this center and other eye care providers.

Vocational training in different trades and further guidance for placements elsewhere is also provided for those who are not directly employed.
