The Daily Dish Xscape: Still Kickin' It

Here's Why Tameka "Tiny" Harris' Eyes Look So Different on Xscape Still Kickin' It

It's not your imagination — or colored contacts.

After Show: Kandi’s Xscape

Tameka "Tiny" Hariss isn't afraid to experiment with her style — even if that means permanently changing her eye color. The Xscape singer recently posted to social media to explain that she'd transformed her gaze from a deep shade of brown to an icy blue-grey, with an assist from some medical pros. 

How to Watch

Catch up on Xscape: Still Kickin' It on Peacock or the Bravo App.

Showcasing her lightened peepers, the Xscape: Still Kickin' It regular shared that she used Brightocular to make the change. Brightocular — which isn't legal in the United States yet — is similar to placing a permanent colored contact over the iris, but doctors use a medical implant instead. 

I permanently changed my eye color with Brightocular and lovin it‼️ Huge thanks to the incredible doctor(s) for the amazing experience and for making my dream come true 😃! I hated wearing contacts just for the color and it made my vision blurry! Blessed to say my vision is #perfect after my #ice-gray implants! Special thanks to the #Brightocular staff for ALL that you've done to make this process happen, you're amaZing & thank you to the hospital's staff for your exceptional customer service as well,😘‼️I would also like to raise awareness about those under privileged living with serious eye conditions called ocular albinism, aniridia, and iris coloboma. Brightocular can help you.

The media is referring to a story from 2009 and data of side effects from a different shaped and even different colored implant that is currently used in Panama since 2002. Brightocular was launched and patent approved in 2010. We do not recommend using this implant from the doctor in Panama. Brightocular is the only artificial iris implant with the United States patent grooves and channels design to accomplish a successful surgery. For more info on the differences, risks, and benefits of all artificial iris implants used around the world, contact brightocular. 😎

Since Tiny posted the news, fans have been asking her tons of questions. Is the procedure safe? Why would she opt to change her eye color? Will she regret this someday? You get the drift! 

To set the doubters straight, Tiny decided to offer a bit more clarity on her cosmetic change. Tiny explained to People that she used regular colored contacts in the past, but they made her vision blurry. When a friend suggested that she try Brightocular, Tiny admitted that she, too, had reservations. "I was nervous because … it’s your eyes!" she said. But after hearing more from the doctors and patients who tried the procedure, Tiny decided to check it out for herself. 

After all, the singer had heard that the $10,000 treatment takes just 15 minutes, has no downtime, and is ultimately reversible. Though Tiny had a slight headache after the procedure — and laments not being able to get eyelash extensions now — she says that she's ultimately glad to have made the switch. 

"You have to do what makes you happy," she told People. "As long as you’re being healthy and safe, just do what makes you feel good." We're sure Tiny would also add to do your research. It took her two years to decide to give Brightocular a go!
