So I was watching the morning news here in middle Tennessee and saw this commercial for the laser eye surgery by Dr. Ming Wang (Some physician whose been hawking his practice many years here). I am a very squeamish person, and this commecial almost made me sick. It compares laser surgery with traditional surgery, and shows them ACTUALLY USING TOOLS ON A PATIENTS EYE! For those that can bare it, here it is in all its (un) glory:



There's no blood or anything but damn couldn't they use a different route to show this! It looks like he's trying to remove the eye lens or something Dead

I guess the purpose is to make you squeamish---about the old method.  Enough to make you wanna give Doc Wang a call about the new method.

Gotta love that shot of the tweezers & blade digging into that eyeball. Of course if I needed Dr Wang's services, that scene would have been kind of blurry.

That sentence doesn't even make sense.  If you're going to spam, at least do it so it doesn't sound like gibberish.

Like people don't already know what goes on during surgery.
 
Watching surgeries don't bother me much as long as they aren't operating in the abdominal region, but eye surgery is legitimately disgusting to people in general. That they'll be gutting your eyeball and sewing it up again is pretty much implied.

The whole idea of eye surgery weirds me out.  It brings to mind that scene from the 1920s Luis Bunuel film, in which a woman has her eyeball slit open.
 
 
 
 
I'll stick with my contact lenses, thanks.

LASIK eye surgery is a procedure that corrects certain vision problems, reducing or eliminating the need for eyeglasses or corrective lenses. LASIK is short for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, the technical term for the surgical procedure.
