Random Story of the Day: Get Rid of Bloodshot Eyes

I was watching Extra TV last night and it featured a segment on how to get rid of three common eye problems (puffy eyes, dark circles, and bloodshot eyes). What I was shocked to learn is that there is actually a surgery called "Eyebright," where an eye surgeon can permanently get rid of bloodshot eyes.

How does the surgery work? Basically the surgeon removes the membrane that holds the blood vessels and in about two weeks your eyes naturally turn white. Apparently, the surgery is "painless." Crazy, huh?

Unfortunately, it costs $4,000 per eye for this surgery. So I wouldn't throw away those eyedrops just yet!
