Who needs Lasik when 'Eye Power' is available?

According to its Japanese distributor, this miracle device uses "ultrasonic technology" to fix near-sightedness and myopia. Good luck with that.

And here we were just about to drop a few grand on laser surgery. Thank goodness we spotted the "Eye Power" on Dvice before getting on the table.

According to its Japanese distributor, this miracle device uses "ultrasonic technology" to fix near-sightedness and myopia (at least the physical kind, anyway). Just peer the offending orb into this thing for 10 minutes, and you can finally toss those Coke-bottle lenses.

That should help with the rigorous challenges you'll face as a contestant on Fear Factor, as we suspect that this is the only kind of person who'd be willing to risk their eyesight on something like this. Or maybe you'd be better off with blurry vision before encountering that plate of pig entrails for lunch.
