Wake Your Lazy Eye Up With Prozac You Crazy Bastards

by Mr. Lazy

It turns out that Prozac isn’t very good at warding off your depression or anorexia if you’ve got that. The drug though may help children who are visually impaired.

A team of Finnish and Italian researchers announced that the drug, when administered to rats with impaired vision, played a role in correcting their eyesight. Even better, they think it could have the same effect on the two to three percent of humans who have amblyopia, or lazy eye, the most common cause of visual impairment among children.

Prozac doesn’t help adults with the same conditions however, or depression, anorexia, or craziness – so why does anyone take it?
