Lasik At Home - Do It Yourself Lasik!

Lasik Hoax



This handy device is advertised to do Lasik in the comfort of your own home. Think twice.

 

Lasik@Home! Save money by doing Lasik yourself! Easy to use device with money back guarantee! Yes, it is a hoax!

In early April (April Fools?) 2006 someone whose identity is unknown created a rather authoritative looking website for Lasik@Home. It is a hoax as there is no such device, but the author takes a light-hearted and cynical look at all the advertising hype surrounding Lasik.

The websites advertises: The Complete LASIK@Home Kit (patent pending) includes everything you need to complete the procedure. Scal-Pal™ Hand-Operated Combination Femtosecond/Excimer Laser, Mild sedative (diazepam 4mg), No-Blink™ brand Eye Drops, Detailed Instructions, QuickStart Guide, and as an added bonus, a Protective Post-Op Sleep Mask. See the website at Lasik@Home.

It is good for a laugh..but wait..if you order now...

If you are ready to choose a real doctor to be evaluated for conventional or custom wavefront Lasik, All-Laser Lasik, PRK, LASEK, Epi-Lasik, NearVision CK, RLE, or any refractive surgery procedure, we highly recommend you consider a doctor who has been evaluated and certified by the USAEyes nonprofit organization. Locate a USAEyes Evaluated & Certified Lasik Laser Eye Surgeon.
