Controversial dancehall star Alkaline may finally be ready to admit that his eye contacts are not real. On Sunday morning when he released a photo of himself on Instagram apparently without his infamous tattooed eyes.  


In the photo, the controversial deejay is seen posing inside a night club with his sclera - the white of the eye - uncoloured. The artiste has for years maintained that he tattoed his eyes.


The post has so far attracted 4,000 plus likes and more than 700 comments. What the public doesn't know is that Alkaline has developed eye problems since he began wearing the eye contacts over three years ago. 

"He had "extreme pain in both eyes. Because he had not been properly fitted by an eye care professional, the lenses stuck to his eye like a suction cup...making him very irritable and uncomfortable, especially when he was on tour and they hurt him worse when he was on airplanes. At one time, he got an infection, so he may just want to take a break from that now, and come clean," one insider told one876.

One876entertainment spoke to a professional ophthalmologist who, on the condition of anonymity, spoke about the risk of wearing coloured contacts.

"Most people believe that decorative lenses do not require the same level of care or consideration as a standard contact lens because they can be purchased over-the-counter or on the Internet, this is not true. There is no such thing as a "one size fits all" contact lens. Lenses that are not properly fitted may scratch the eye or cause blood vessels to grow into the cornea.," the doctor said. 

In Jamaica, there are no laws against selling coloured contact lenses without a prescription, but it is illegal in the United States. All contact lenses are medical devices that require a prescription and proper fitting by an eye-care professional. Retailers that sell contacts without a prescription are breaking the law, and may be fined US$11,000 per violation.
