Eyes are often named as the first thing one notices on a person, but it seems boring old irises just aren’t doing the trick for millennials. Fox News reports that the latest phenomenon to sweep women with an extremely disposable income is eye jewelry, which involves getting a piece of platinum jewelry placed inside the eyeball.
The procedure, which costs an eye-watering $3,000, is called “Safesight Jewelry” (this, despite not being FDA-approved) and is being offered at Park Avenue Laser by Dr. Emil Chynn, who will assure you that he actually believes it’s “pretty safe.”
“It’s a very thin piece of platinum that’s designed for insertion on the top of the eye, it’s not in the eye so there’s no risk of blindness or anything at all,” he explained. “She could have a little bit of local bleeding. That could go away in a couple days or couple weeks. She could have an infection but we’ll prevent that with antibiotics.”
His first patient was Lucy Luckayanko, who got a platinum heart placed in one of her peepers. She says that the reaction to her new eye candy has been mixed, with 50 percent of friends calling her crazy, and the other half calling it “super cool”.
