My friend is African American.
I wanted to get my eyes done so I can have blue eyes like my father. I told my friend that I wanted to get the surgery and she said that I shouldn’t do it because it’s not “self love”. I have no problem with my brown eyes , I just want to try something new. I want to live my life without fear. My friend asked me “why are you trying to be white?” How could I try to be white when I’m half white? But At the end of the day it’s my body, it’s my life and I’m still going to get the surgery done.
A lot of people wear colored contacts but I barely hear anything about how they don’t love themselves.
MY VIEW ON PLASTIC SURGERY
I view plastic surgery as a way to try something new. It’s like getting a new hair style or new sense of style. but permanent. I already tried colored contacts and I would lose them all the time, they cost me $100 for each pair and I bought about 6 pairs from solitica. I think this surgery would be a way for me to have a permanent results without having to poke my eye out every single time.

You do what YOU want to do. Don't let us or your friends tell you what to do with your body. If you've done your research on it and feel comfortable with it, go for it. I do agree you should be comfortable with yourself but you said it's cause you want a change so it sounds like a good reason for it. Even if you were FULLY black, don't let comments like you heard from your friend make you feel bad about what you want.
Side note, I'm usually gainst plastic surgery for most other things really mainly because I've seen so many people do it and they just look off afterwards? But I don't know much about eye surgery so hope it goes well for you if you do it!

It's your body, you're the only one who knows whether you love it, or hate it
Actually I remember thinking about this surgery too. I'm also biracial (Caucasian-African), my whole family on my father's side has blue eyes, and I got brown ones. I think that brown eyes can look very cute, but I've always wondered how I would look with blue eyes. I tried one use contacts, and the result was quite amazing.
What stopped me from thinking about this surgery was the fear that it could go wrong and permanently damage my eyes... I know the odds must be really low, but it's still terrifying
