After years and years of staring at TVs and computer screens I’ve somehow managed to avoid the need for glasses. Of course I’m sure that day will eventually come, but it’s reassuring to know there are crazy Japanese gadgets I can use to prolong the inevitable.
The Eye Power claims it can fix near-sightedness and myopia using ultrasonic technology. All you have to do is stare into what looks like an old 8mm camera for 10 minutes every day, and eventually your vision problems will be cured. Now I want to be clear that I’m no Optometrist, nor have I ever played one on TV, so I can’t comment on whether or not you can actually use ultrasonic technology to fix these problems. But I have managed to scrape together a bit of common sense which will probably ensure I will never, ever look directly into this device like they suggest.
But don’t let that stop you. You can get an Eye Power for yourself from Rakuten for about $800.
