Last week, the Tameka “Tiny” Harris posted a picture to Instagram announcing she had changed her eye color from dark brown to ice-gray. People immediately criticized the star, calling her crazy and saying she must have low-self esteem.
During a recent trip to Tunisia, Africa (with hubby T.I. and her eldest daughter Zonnique), Tiny went under the knife for the procedure using BrightOcular which, according to the website, is intraocular implant that is placed in the anterior chamber of the eye to change the appearance of the iris. And the reason she had to travel overseas to have the surgery done is because it’s actually illegal here in the United States!
This morning, Tiny appeared on “GMA” where she explained step-by-step how the procedure was performed and how she felt once the surgical operation was over. She revealed,
“They go into the eye and they make a little slit,” Harris explained of the procedure that uses a medical-grade silicone. “They take an implant and it’s folded up. They open it [and] spread it over your eye. They told me that the procedure was going to be quick, five to 10 minutes an eye,” she said. “They woke me up. It was very blurry, then it kind of fades in.”
So what does T.I. think about all this?
“He was like, ‘What are you doing?'” Harris said, adding that now her spouse is ok with the change. “He loves them,” she said. “He’s ok with it as long as I’m healthy and don’t have any problems.”
When asked why she decided to go through with it, she responded,
“I just wanted to do something different. And I have the right to do that. It’s my body.”
I agree with Tiny, it IS her body but… the long term dangers of this procedure have not been researched enough. Since Tiny has been changing a lot about her appearance, it does kind of make me question how secure she is. I just hope she stops here. She’s confirmed a boob job and a Brazilian butt lift already.
