New procedure offers jewellery for your eyeball

A doctor in the US is offering up a new cosmetic surgery to patients who want their eyes to look particularly special: platinum eyeball jewellery.

No, you didn't read that sentence incorrectly, you can now get an implant for the whites of your eyes, if you feel that the area surrounding your cornea isn't looking its best.

The procedure is currently being offered at the Park Ave laser clinic by Dr. Emil Chynn, who went over to Amsterdam to speak to the world leader in eye jewellery and then he brought it back over to America.

The eye wear itself is made from platinum and the doctor makes a small incision in the conjunctiva, the clear covering of the eye, and then inserts the implant. He doesn't even need to suture it as it's so small. Luckily, it will close up after three days.

Kristina Kovalevskaya is the first to get this sort of treatment in the US and paid around $3,000 (£1,792) for the pleasure of having a 3.5mm heart-shaped platinum shard placed inside her eye.

However, it hasn't been approved by the FDA yet. The Food and Drug Administrations are responsible for protecting and promoting public health through regulation and supervision of various areas of health, including cosmetic surgery. But apparently there's zero chance of loss of sight.

You can watch the whole procedure in the video below.
