I bet there is a 100W IR diode in there. I just ordered one.

I'll do a review when it gets here.

LOL....I can't believe that they are putting that out!
Seems like a really bad idea putting such equipment into the general people's hands. Seems like there is A LOT of room for error, no matter how well they think they have designed this.
Crazy...Although I do like the cartoon instructions!

EDIT:....."DON"T BLINK!"........and it's only $100 bucks!!

Just seems a bit sketchy for $100 and your own eye sight!

Edit: on the other end, it may make a fun laser if it's any good.

Well if your spelling or typing is all screwed up, we will know that you got it.

Comes with "Mild sedative (diazepam 4mg)" :crackup:

PS. The * after "Perform this painless procedure" states "*This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA."

So no one's willing to shine this in their eye then?

EDIT: "IMPORTANT: Do not point any other laser (including laser pointers) at anyone's eye. Do not look directly at any laser."

Wow.. I would never perform that kind of surgery on myself.. Even though it costs $10.000 from a doctor, I'd go with the doctor all the day..

"cuts a small flap in the cornea of your eye".. Cutting my eye? No.

The professional lasik I got was disturbing enough... You lose all ability to focus for like 10 seconds as (you learn later) they cut a slice of your eye. Then there's a noise and you smell burning.

On the plus side it's over in 12 minutes.

I was hoping this DIY device would allow you to at least reprogram. All those machines assume a 6mm iris, and that assumption messed up my vision at night permanently.
