Surgically Implanted Eye Jewelry (Photo)

First there was Ear Jewelry, then Nose Jewelry, some moved to Jewelry on their Teeth and Tongue while others opted for Jewelry on their Privates. And now we have Eye Jewelry. I wonder how far people will go in the name of fashion.

The “Safesight jewelry” procedure is now being offered by Dr. Emil Chynn of Park Avenue Laser Vision, New York. The surgery involves making a little incision in your sclera and inserting a thin piece of platinum into your eye.

But according to Fox News, the surgery is actually “pretty safe,” and Dr. Chynn says that the local bleeding will “go away in a couple days or a couple weeks.”

The procedure costs about $3,000 and the American Academy of Ophthalmology is warning consumers about the dangers.

In a statement to Fox 5, the AAO said there is not "sufficient evidence to support the safety or therapeutic value of this procedure."
