If you have an eye color that you do not want, you might be in serious distress over the way that you look. This can reduce your confidence and make you feel less attractive. However, there are a few different ways that you can change your eye color, either permanently or temporarily. Here are some methods that you can evaluate.

1. Try Contacts

One option is for you to try using colored contacts to change your eyes. This method of changing your eye color is not permanent. It requires you to put contacts in for the times that you want to change your eye color and remove them again when you are done using them. The benefit of this is that it allows you to try multiple different colors until you find the exact shade that you want. It also makes it relatively easy for you to go back to your natural color if you need to. The downside of this method is that you'll keep having to buy new colored contacts because the contacts will wear out over time. Another problem is that you will have to deal with taking care of the contacts and storing them properly, which many people do not enjoy.

2. Try Laser Surgery

If you don't want to worry about buying contacts or taking care of contacts, then you can opt for laser surgery. Laser surgery will change the color of your eye. The procedure is relatively simple. Your eyelids will be prevented from shutting. The eye doctor might apply some topical medication to keep you from being in pain or from moving your eyes around too much. Then, you will watch a small animation that is used to focus your eyes while the laser changes the color of your eyes. The color will not be apparent immediately but will take a few weeks to show up. There is little to no pain involved with the procedure. This procedure is very expensive and has not been fully certified, so you might need to sign up for a trial if you are feeling particularly strongly about the color of your eyes. You will also need to have a consultation with your eye doctor first to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure.
