Crystal Gayle Was Just Ahead of Her Time

There is a laser treatment (awaiting FDA approval) that will change brown eyes to blue – if you think doing so is worth five grand.
According to ophthalmologists, we all have blue eyes below our brown eyes, under a thin layer of pigment. 
A California company has now developed a laser treatment that disturbs the melanin in the pigmented part of the eye and causes the body to eliminate it over time. The procedure only lasts seconds, but it may take weeks before the blue tint emerges. 
This laser treatment is not available here in the U.S. yet, but has been tested overseas with success. Researchers claim it is safe but have to conduct more clinical trials before they can apply for FDA approval.
