Dr Chandrashekhar Chawan has created lenses with 24-carat nano particles of gold that are added to regular contact lenses in a special paste. Each contact weighs 5 grams, as an extra layer is applied to avoid contact between the eyes and the gold. The cost of the contacts are $15,000 to $18,000. The lenses were developed in collaboration with ARC Contact Lenses LLC in the US, but according to reports, some American experts have expressed safety concerns over the lenses. Chawan admitted he received mixed responses but Bollywood personalities and others loved the concept that they believe is going to be the 'in thing' in fashion soon. Surprisingly Chawan was inspired by cosmetic dentistry after his wife had diamonds planted on her teeth. Several of Chawan's clients demonstrated their glittering eyes in his office.
