People Change Their Eye Color For A Week


(soft instrumental music) – As far as my eyes go, I feel like people don’t really pay them any mind. – I’ve never gotten any
compliments on my eyes. – I always feel invisible
with my blue eyes. I feel really clear looking. (logo whooshes)
(hinge squeaks) – I’ve totally wanted to try blue eyes. Playing with color is always cool. – Growing up in the South,
like having light skin, light eyes is very celebrated so growing up, I always
wanted to have light eyes. – I’m the only one in my
family that has blue eyes. I have six siblings. I always wanted brown eyes
just ’cause everybody else in my family has them. – Today what we’re going to do is change the eye color of three different patients. Now the fitting of contact
lenses, whether they be just purely for cosmetic purposes or for the correction of vision, it’s still a medical device
and one needs to be examined by an eye doctor to be fit appropriately. – I’m going to be trying blue eyes. – I’m going to be trying out green eyes. – And I’m going to be trying brown eyes. – So Kane, we’ve got both lenses in now. (Kane sighs heavily)
Check it out. – [Kane] Whoa! – Oh my geez! – [Kuwilileni] Whoa! – It feels like I put
someone’s eyeball into my head. – Who am I? – I expected to hate this,
but actually kind of love it. – I feel like the reaction
is going to be positive because it’s such a cool thing to change. – I am a little bit nervous
about wearing colored contacts ’cause I’m worried that people will think that I don’t think that my own brown eyes, as they are, are beautiful enough. – I assume people will
notice that something on my face is darker. The guy who helped me put
the lenses in was like, “You look like a completely
different person.” I do look like the rest of my family. – I feel just like augmenting
one part of my body has made me feel like more beautiful. I think I’m going to become really vain, like even now I’m like, “Hey, girl.” – I look less like a cyborg
today and more like a cat. – So I just put ’em in
for the second time. I feel like I’ve acclimated to them and they just look like my
normal eyes but they kinda hurt. I don’t understand how
people do this every morning. – I feel like a lot bolder. I like being another person. I feel like people look at me different. – Whoa, you look like a demon.
(whimsical instrumental music) – I don’t know what my
boyfriend will feel, like will he dump me? I don’t know, we’ll see. – Whoa. I’m very used to you with the blue eyes. I don’t know, they’re like piercing. – Say some people some
time to get used to it but, yeah, I totally dig it. – You look like a mutant from X-Men. – They’re entrancing, I’m entranced. – I think it’s going to
be weird for my boyfriend. – Is this a trick? – [Kane] Do you notice
something different? My eyes? – Uh-huh, yeah, your eyes are different. Ah, nu-uh! (laughs) Are they blue? – [Kane] Yeah.
(laughs) – Oh my gosh! – One of the things I’ve
noticed about wearing them is I’m always wondering if
people are going to notice. – They kind of fit. – They’re like brighter, it
like hits you in the face. – Ah, gotcha! Going in the trash! Bye, no more contacts. I enjoyed the experience a lot, of just seeing what I would look like but it was a lot of torture to get there. – I was shocked when I put them in that I actually liked them. I was apprehensive because
having come into myself and really celebrating and loving myself, I was afraid society would
think that I was trying to hide my African heritage. – It totally made my dreams come true. Do I look like a part of my family now? I think they’re like, “Finally.” – One of the most powerful
lessons I’ve learned in life is living your body as it is,
as it changes, as it grows, like loving it for what it is. – And once I died, the
mortician will be like, “Oh, this is weird,” like, (hacks) “This 90-year-old woman has
contacts in.” (chuckles)

  1. I have light blue eyes and I have always wanted to try brown eyes
    I think it makes you look friendlier than blue eyes I don’t know the reason.

  2. I can tell from a mile away if someone is wearing colored contacts. I don’t like them because they hide their eyes. You can tell a lot from people’s eyes. Covering them up makes me uneasy.

  3. I remember when I was little I had a blue eyes then when I was like 9 or 10 my eyes change green…wtf I want blue eyes back

  4. African Americans can and do have amber eyes, my grandmother and uncle has them. Kinda close to hazel but just very yellow looking

  5. I have an amazing eye colour:
    Blue in the middle, green around and brown little dots.
    But sometimes:
    When I'm angry , they turn all black
    When I'm happy, they turn bright green
    When I'm jealous or sad they turn all blue. A pale , lifeless blue.
    They often change colour through the years :
    When I was born : hazel
    When I was 5: ocean blue
    When I was 7: pale blue with green strikes
    When I was 10: turquoise
    When I was 11: bright green
    When I was 13:hazel
    When I was 13 and a half:brown
    When I was 15: Billie Eilish blue
    They're really pretty, I love my eyes. And since I'm a brunette they fit me really well.
    Btw, yes, I'm a model for ZARA kids and MANGO kids, and GUCCI.

  6. I feel cool now, not because of any eye color but because I'm wearing contacts for eye sight and put them in every morning just like always and never noticed how much other people would struggle with that if they're not used to it hahahaha xD

  7. I have 1 blue eye and one green with 1/4 of it as yellow-hazelish. my eyes are the only part of me that people have complimented me on ;w;

  8. You feel invisible with blue eyes wow I have blue eyes it's not that bad and it's good to stand out it's fine

  9. i've seen like 5 people in the comments so far that have said heterocromia (I've gone down about thirty maybe forty) hmmmmmm some people gotta be lying

  10. what's so crazy about wearing colored contact? I've been wearing them for years no one ever said anything about it…

  11. Putting contacts don't mean you don't love your eyes, or your race. It is not permanent and completely safe, it's just about having fun with your looks, like wigs really.

  12. I mean…I kinda wish I had heterochromia because it is very unique and beautiful yeah people think it’s weird but who cares what people mean I mean it’s 2019!

  13. "Growing up in the south"blah, blah, blah
    I've lived in Georgia 10 plus years what shes talking about just sounds like a personal problem

  14. My mom has dark brown eyes, My sister have light green eyes, My dad has blue light eyes, My brother has black eyes, My sister has like hazel eyes brown light eyes or something but ME i have two different eyes i have brown in the other eye and green in the other eye I have different eyes colours ( OH AND i have two sisters) xD

  15. There really wasn’t a difference… they should’ve used more realistic contacts that would’ve fit darker eyes. Stop pretending like they looked any different with them on . The black girl and Asian guy looked exactly the same.

  16. in my senior year of high school I wore grey contacts that looked green for fun & I don’t regret it ☺️

  17. The lady that got the green eyes fjdjdjd so beautiful on her . Also the one that got the brown eyes she looked better with them 🙂

  18. Everyone wants to have blue eyes but the true is that the only person who got prettier was the girl who changed her blue eyes to brown…

  19. The black woman was speaking facts…like because of the colorism in the black community we don't desire our own characteristics.

  20. definitely they have to get the solotica ones… to really get the looks that they were looking for… I can barely notice the light colored ones…

  21. SMH KANE HAS A BOYFRIEND HE'S EITHER GAY OR BISEXUAL IM SQUELING RN THAT IS LEGIT SO CUTE I APPRECIATE LGBTQ+ PPL SO MUCHHHHHHHHHH

  22. I have a problem on my eyes… My left eyes is blue and my right side green. I actually don’t hate my eyes I just feel different

  23. i have blueish grey eyes and i find them sooo boring! i want brown eyes they just look sooo much sexier! On men and women!

  24. Curly haired girls want straight hair
    Straight haired girls want curly hair
    Blue eyes girls want brown eyes
    Brown eyes girl want blue eyes
    Okay 🤡

  25. I have greyish-blue eyes and the rest of my family has dark brown/green…. I’d love to have brown eyes, they’re so beautiful!!!! I wish I had them so bad…..

  26. My family regularly debates about my eye color. We can't agree on whether it's blue or green. Many people say my eyes are turquoise. If you zoom into my profile pic, they look more blue but on my channel banner they are an icy gray. Personally, I think that my eyes change color based on the light and the clothes I wear. It's pretty cool actually!

  27. I just realised some years ago that i have green eyes:D the best eyecolour in my opinion..:P I always thought that it was kind of brown..i was happy about it:)

  28. Which brand of contacts are the brown ones? I was to cover my blue eyes. They seem like they do a great job!

  29. The brown contacts looks super natural and striking on the blonde but the colored ones look ridiculous on the dark eyed people. They could have picked a better quality colored contacts for the dark eyed participants.
