Will people stop at NOTHING to abuse alcohol? A new trend called Eyeball Shots has apparently been picked up by teens. I was curious about it so I called the campus police at the university in my town. They have had problems with the college kids and high school kids who sneak into college parties doing this. To do an eyeball shot a person either lays down face up or bends over backward to lean on the bar face up. Then vodka is poured directly onto the OPEN eye. Blood vessels in the eye absorb the alcohol and it gives a quick buzz. According to one article I read there are over 800 youtube clips about this and a facebook page dedicated to it. Seems like it has become very popular and is spreading quickly. I cannot imagine why it ever sounded like a good idea, and I bet that many who try it will regret it when they are older. Or even now. One person quoted in an article said that she has a constantly watering eye and is always in pain from this. She is very much afraid that it will get worse over time. Personally I would rather have someone puke in my face while pounding nails through my hands and feet than let someone pour alcohol into my eye. The risks seem so high to me. Not just of the alcohol use, but of eye infection, other eye problems and even the possibility of going blind. Not sure anyone has gone blind or will, but it seems logical that there is at least some chance of going blind from doing this. Just one more thing for us parents to worry about! Do you think your child, difficult child or typical teen, would try this? Have you heard of this before?
