Lasik At Home

LASIK@Home? Someone please tell me this is a joke.

LASIK@Home is the same patented surgical procedure performed at eye clinics around the world, but without the unnecessary equipment and staff. LASIK@Home takes the mystery (and expense!) out of complicated LASIK procedures. Thanks to the Scal-Pal™ laser, you can go from blurry to clear vision in just four easy steps.

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.*

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 and QuickStart Guide
* Protective Post-Op Sleep Mask

I am so sure. Includes a "mild sedative (diazepam 4mg) ". Diazepam is Valium. Valium is the brand name for the drug Diazepam. I'm sure they're going to mail you valium to your house. And a hand-held excimer laser to vaporize "a tiny section of the lens". This has to be a joke.

Update: This is a hoax.
