Who can ever forget the first time that they ever saw someone with a laser pointer? Even my eight-year-old brain knew right at that moment: I was seeing the future. A future filled with:
1) Presentations at work or school filled with accurate pointing, freed once and for all from the inaccuracy of waving a finger in a general direction.
2) That joke where you pretend like a sniper is chasing your friend.
3) Shining it on a guy while he is unaware.
4) Constant warnings from your mom about not shining it in someone's eye.
And now, thanks to the LASIK (ironically pronounced "LAY-sick") community, we have come to realize just how wrong our moms were. Apparently, shining a laser in a kid's eye is just about the most awesome thing you can do.
Maybe our moms were misinformed. Maybe our moms were confused. Maybe they were afraid.
