An Ireland lady is on the verge of getting blind totally after she got her eyes tattooed in blue and purple.



The mother of five is now regretting taking the decision and not listening to her seven-year-old daughter who warned that she could go blind if she got her eyeballs tattooed.

The woman named Anaya Peterson, 32 said she was inspired by "blue-eyed dragon" Amber Luke, an Australian model who got her eyeballs inked blue in 2019 - before going temporarily blind for three weeks.

Anaya, from Belfast, Northern Ireland, was left hospitalised following the eye alteration and is facing permanent blindness after a suspected reaction to the eyeball ink.

The mum, who also has a tongue split and facial tattoos, now says she wishes she could have done things differently.

She got her right eyeball tattooed blue in July 2020 and decided to get her left eye dyed purple in December 2020.

After months without complications, Anaya was shocked to wake up in August 2021 with "swollen" eyelids as though her "face had been inflated with air".

As the swelling continued to get worse despite taking antibiotics, Anaya checked herself into the hospital's A&E ward.

Anaya claims that her daughter India was never on board with the eye tattoo, as she feared that her mum would "go blind"

Anaya said: "I was just going to get one [eye tattoo] at first because I thought that if I go blind, at least I've got the other eye. I should have stuck with that.

naya has been told by ophthalmologists that she is now at a very high risk of contracting glaucoma, and her eyesight is already worsening, with her vision clouded by "hundreds of thousands of floaters".

naya said: "I'm kind of recovered - on the outside, it's recovered. It's just inside. I'm basically on the verge of going blind.

"I don't have 20/20 vision anymore. From a distance I can't see features on faces.

"If I didn't have my eyeballs tattooed, I wouldn't be having this problem. Even today I woke up with more floaters in my eyes. And that is dangerous.
