Man gets his eyeball shaved by barber with razor blade in bid to improve his vision
A veteran barber has revealed how he cleans eyeballs with a razor-sharp blade for more than 40 years without a problem.
Xiong Gaowu, 62, has a distinctive skill beyond the normal suite of offers of a normal hairdresser.
He is said to be an expert eyeball shaver – which means washing your eyes with a knife.
The five-minute process is said to involve pulling the eyelid back to expose the eyeball.
The eyeball is then cleansed by shaving and scraping its surface with a razor sharp blade.
Both the upper and lower eyelids are done separately.
An iodine solution was added for sterilisation before eye drops were applied to the blade.
He reportedly claimed to have never had a slip up in more than 40 years.
The method allows him to clean the inner eyelid, allowing people to see clearer.
But he only serves customers over the age of 30.
This was because younger people did not generally have any dirt in their eyes, People’s China Daily reports.
His outdoor barbershop is located in Chengdu, capital of south-western China’s Sichuan Province.
