Extraocular implant

An extraocular implant (also known as eyeball jewelry) is a cosmetic implant consisting of a tiny decorative piece of jewelry that is implanted into the superficial inter-palpebral conjunctiva or sclera of the human eye.

History and culture

Eyeball jewelry was first developed in the Netherlands as a radical new form of body modification in 2002. It was first developed at the Netherlands Institute of Innovative Eye Surgery and is marketed there under the name JewelEye. This procedure is completely legal in the Netherlands if it is performed by a licensed ophthalmologist under sterile conditions.

In Canada, several provinces have passed laws banning eyeball jewelry and sclera tattoos due to potential health risks, including Ontario and Saskatchewan.

Procedure

Unlike subcutaneous implants and other new body modification procedures, the extraocular implant is currently only performed in a medical clinic setting. The procedure is relatively quick, but requires both eyes to be immobilized with pain-relieving drops, and that the layers of the eyeball where the implant is located are separated by fluid injection. Since very few people have undergone this procedure and it is relatively new, the long-term health effects are currently unknown.

However, the website of the Netherlands Institute for Innovative Eye Surgery says that the implant does not affect the function of the eye, that is, visual ability and mobility. In addition, patient satisfaction remains high, and no side effects from treatment were observed over a follow-up period of more than one year.

Jewelry

Currently, the only jewelry supplier for this implant is a company from Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The implant is made of platinum alloy and is available in several basic shapes, including euro sign, heart, musical note, clover, or star shapes, other shapes can be made by the company on request. The size of the decoration is about 3 mm across.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.
