Elderly Chinese Man ‘Cleans’ People’s Eyes With a Sharp Razor Blade

A 62-year-old man in China promises to rid your eyes of dirt — unless you’re not willing to go under his blade.

Xiong, who is actually a barber, does business on the side of a street in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.

Aside from cutting hair, Xiong claims that one of his special skills is “eye-cleaning,” according to NetEase.

However, the procedure, which he calls an “ancient technique,” involves the use of a sharp blade to scrape “dirt” off of people’s eyeballs.

If it’s any consolation, he cleans the blade with some sanitizing solution before “treating” his customers.

Xiong claims he has been doing the procedure for over 40 years with no issues.

He began studying the trade at the age of 17 and trained for three years before accepting paying customers, he told the Chengdu Business Daily in 2013.

In addition, he only treats customers over the age of 30, as those below do not have filth in their eyes yet.

What do you think about Xiong’s eye-cleaning?
