Shaving the Inside of Your Eyelids?


Chengdu, China, barber Liu Deyuan, 53, is one of the few who still offer traditional "eye-shaving," in which he holds the eye open and runs a razor across the lids' inner surfaces. Then, using a thin metal rod with a round tip, he gently massages the inside of each lid. In April, Liu told a reporter for the Chengdu Business Daily he'd never had an accident (the reporter couldn't be enticed to experience the treatment himself, preferring just to observe), and a highly satisfied customer reported afterward his eyes felt "moist" and his vision "clearer." A local hospital official said eye-shaving can scrape away scar tissue and stimulate the eyes to lubricate the sockets.
