Can you actually change the color of one's eye through corneal transplantation?
Eye color is predominantly due to the color of the iris. The cornea is a transparent structure in the front of the eye. When patients undergo corneal transplantation, occasionally the eye gains a bluish hue due to the healing of the periphery of the transplant. In patients who wish to change their eye color, the safest method is with a prescription from your ophthalmologist for colored contact lenses.
