Vodka Eyeballing

Vodka eyeballing means pouring vodka straight in to your eye rather than in to your mouth and there are about 1,000 videos on YouTube of people performing this stunt, either as a dare or as a way to fast-track the effects of the vodka.

Apparently the pain of pouring vodka in to your eye is replaced by an instant high and then what is described as a ‘deeper state of drunkenness’.

The Daily Mail seems to have been the first to report on this new trend in the UK after it started amongst American college students. They interviewed one student Melissa Fontaine, whose left eye has been permanently damaged by vodka eyeballing. Her eye now waters all the time and she says she is in constant pain. She says she wishes she could turn back the clock on what she did.

How Dangerous is Vodka Eyeballing?
Dr. Richard Rosen of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary warns, “It’s like using paint stripper on the surface of your eye.”

Obviously this is a stupid dangerous thing to do in the name of getting drunk and showing off, but since the purpose of this blog is to bring you info on all things interesting, I’m fairly confident many people will now be searching YouTube for videos of people trying it out.
