I'm all about DIY projects, healthcare included. That's why I was excited to hear about the Eye Power. It's a device aimed at correcting "near-sighted/myopic vision problems". You hold it up to your eye 10 minutes at a time and it sends ultrasonic waves through your freaking eyeball. You're supposed to have perfect 20/20 vision in no time. The product is untested and there is no evidence what-so-ever to back the claims -- but it's only $800. Besides, ultrasonic waves and eyeballs were practically made for each other. So what if it makes your eyes explode or slams them into you brain. It's not like eyeballs don't regenerate. What's that, they don't? Well shit. Oh well, eye patches are coming back.
