Have you ever wondered what a sliced eye looks like? (PHOTO)
Ever wondered what it would look like if someone took a pizza cutter to your eye? Well, regardless of how disconcerting a mental image that is, wonder no more, as a medical journal just published such a photo.

The unnamed patient had undergone the radical surgery, developed in the 1970s, years before laser eye surgery had become popular.
