Ever heard of 'eye shaving'? This man in China has been doing it for over 40 years

While many people have claimed to have a better vision post the eye shaving treatment, we still think that it is strictly for the brave hearts

Shaving your face and head is very normal and is a part of your body cleaning routine. Right? But what if we tell you that ‘eye shaving’ is also a thing and no, it’s not anything new. It is supposedly an old Chinese medical practise used to clean the eyes and improve vision. In fact, there are only a few barbers in China who can perform it because younger practitioners do not wish to carry on the tradition. Xiong Gaowu is one of those few people in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, who has been performing the ‘eye shaving’ treatment for over 40 years. None of his customers have ever been hurt.

Now, coming back to the interesting part — How is it done?

Firstly, the razor is sterilised with iodine solution and then an eye drop is added to the blade.

And now the barber gently scrapes the lower and upper waterline of the customer with the blade in a sweeping motion to remove all the dirt.

After the scrapping part is done, a tiny metal stick with a ball-shaped tip is carefully rolled over the eyeball and the eyelids.
