Cornea bling

Thursday, June 4, 2009

Since 2004, eye surgeons at the Netherlands Institute for Innovative Ocular Surgery have been implanting a tiny pieces of jewelry called a “JewelEye” under the surfaces of eyes.

The procedure involves inserting a 3.5 mm (0.13 inch) wide piece of specially developed jewelry (the range includes a glittering half-moon or heart) into the eye’s cornea. The implant is made of platinum and it can be molded in all kinds of desired shapes and sizes.
