Acumag Eye Massager and Vision Therapy

I used to be a sucker for any non-surgical treatment that claimed to be able to correct my life-long myopia. After trying various cockamamie ideas over the years - the latest one started with the suggestion that I can't see because my brain is trapped by the tunnel vision caused by years of corrective lenses - I pretty much gave up on the notion of reclaiming the 20/20 vision that was my birthright. I don't know if I'm a victim of a conspiracy between the optical industry and the medical profession, as suggested by the International Myopia Prevention Association; all I know is, no matter how much I believe deep down in my heart in the true clarity of my natural vision, I just plain can't see with my naked eyes. I may as well believe I can jump off my roof and fly.
Still, I paused when I came across this Acumag Eye Massager, which claims so many wondrous benefits for only $14.99, and looks so ridiculous, that it's got to be worth a try. The massager works by pressing on acupressure points to reduce eye strain, stress, headaches, and fatigue. The pinholes supposedly train the eyes to focus and coordinate better. Pinhole vision therapy, along with other forms of alternative vision therapy, has its ardent critics (see, for instance, Eye-Related Quackery on the Quackwatch website). If it doesn't work, either to correct my vision or to get rid of my headaches, I'll give it away as a door prize at my next party, along with the no-detergent, ion laundry balls that failed to wash my clothes.
