Why let a professional with years of experience perform lasik eye surgery when you can do it yourself at home! For the low low price of $99.95, you can get the LASIK@Home system. The diagram at right really says it all. If you are at all concerned about any dangers of shining a laser in your eye, here’s an excerpt from the website to comfort you:
The Scal-Pal™ is actually two lasers in one! First the Scal-Pal™ femtosecond laser cuts a small flap in the cornea of your eye. Then the excimer laser vaporizes a tiny section of the lens without damaging the surrounding tissue. The whole procedure takes only a few minutes and is virtually painless.*

If you’re still thinking about buying the device, you probably should stop using the internet. Luckily for all of us the product is a hoax, but the idea of it is still pretty jarring. It’s only a matter of time before shoddy products like these are actually available, so we advise prudence in your medgadget shopping.
