Diamond Contact Lenses

i came across an interesting article about gold and diamond infused contact lenses in India. They are beautiful looking in the eye, but not yet deemed safe by FDA. They are also very high priced . I wonder about the safety of these in your eyes and the long term health effects. It is a new twist on diamond jewelry, but I myself would never get them. The are high priced, probably not safe, and with starving children right now in the horn of africa, it would seem to me a selfish purchase when this kind of cash could help them. But to each his own with thier own money.

Cool beans, but FDA ruling dosn't mean # FYI...

Those guys have deemed many things that poison the unknowing american population "safe"...

Personally, I think they look ridiculous. The people in the gallery look like they have some messed up eyes.
I agree with you on being a complete a$$ if you purchase stuff like this. It's like the gold and crystal monopoly set..who the hell buys that crap?

Looks awful and cost way too much!

Ugh, they look horrid. Reminds me of wotsisname's diamond teeth. Kanye West? Looks like he's got some bird's bangle stuck in his gob.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in MY EYE....

Can not stand when OP is to lazy to embed..

If you did not know how to, totally understandable..
(you do have an avatar though, all you do is upload it
like your avatar. copy and paste the embed link)

I guess they look alright, Kind of neat..

Not something I would invest in..

Because I just do not care that much about it..
Not because the fda or anyone else says so..

*now you can have eyes that literally light up a room for $15,000.*
I could buy a nice diamond ring to put on her finger for that,
she would be much more appreciate of..

Well, I have mixed thoughts on this.

Does look interesting, how the eyes show up with them in.

I love how the US doctors are screaming it's not safe and FDA BS. Thats just classic brainwashing.

There is an actual medical-grade lens between your eye and the bling. So I think the "risk" is rather low. Unless they're made in China. then I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole, and someone else eyes.

Rather expensive, but I don't mind looking at those eyes.

Side note: Would be nice if they made the full lens out of diamond, considering how easily my contacts I wear get scratched up. Diamond for medical purpose would be interesting. A tougher, more rugged lens. And scratch-proof!

I am still holding out for Cybernetic eye implants, truth be told.

If you want to look like a freak, go for it. I foresee punk rock kids getting into imitation versions of these.

Im sure thats where the markets are gonna be, the youth. The youth that follow everything celebrities do. Once someone famous dons them, theyll become the new thing.

Personally, I really like the look of the contacts. They have a glow to them I have seen somewhere before.

...Or maybe it's my affinity for sparkly things.

Those are certainly unusual and unique. I must admit, I do like the look! If it can be done safely, I see it as no different than any other kind of alternation to one's body done for aesthetics. Heck, people even tattoo the whites of their eyes. The body is a canvas, even the eyes, it seems.
