A 42-year-old member asked:

Can you tell me how could i change my eye color?

Not possible: The color of the eye is due to the structure of the iris inside the eye. There is not way to change that color without causing severe damage to the eye and vision. If you want a different color, then talk with your ophthalmologist about colored contact lenses which can give you a new color or enhance your current color.
