    Does anyone here know of a safe way to temporarily tint or dye the
    surface of the eye so that the whole sclera will be blue? If so, would
    this necessarily tint one's vision blue as well? I am looking at the
    possibility in order to avoid full-sclera contacts.

    This is for costume purposes, so please forgive the possible
    irrelevance. I just did not want to ask in a NG that might give me
    medically unsound advice. If there are no ophthalmologists who can
    think of a safe way, then it probably is plain unsafe.

    Thanks,

    Zaph'enath
