There was a very interesting article that popped up in my RSS feed yesterday. This article talks about a conference proceeding where a way of modifying the shape of cartilaginous tissues using electric currents was described. While it is limited to tissues containing collagen, this actually covers a pretty good chunk of the human body, most interestingly the eyes. As someone who wears glasses, I’ve often contemplated LASIK. However, while it does have a pretty good success rate I am fairly attached to my vision and I’m not too comfortable with the known potential side effects from vaporizing part of your eye.
