Does this product sound legit?

Okay, my name is Reynaldi. I live in indonesia. my right eye is minus 4 (-4.00), while me left eye is normal (yes, normal!).

this morning, i found a product called Ibrite which is sold here in indonesia. The price is okay for me (about $150 in USD)

this is the translated description of the product:

If you use glasses, it will worsen your eyesight. It doesn't help your eyesight to become better.

BLAH BLAH BLAH I SKIPPED SOME PARTS

All of these things are caused because of your weakened ciliary muscle in your eyes.

ibrite with the 3D technology, will train your ciliary muscles! This technology will make your eyes see far and close object, which trains your ciliary muscle. (they want to make our ciliary muscle becomes elastic again)

the result is more elastic ciliary muscle, which leads to better eyesight.

they also have 7 acupuncture points which relaxes the eyes.

here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtrdymJHAPg&feature=player_embedded

a bit google translate would be helpful!

So do you think this product will heal my eye, or is it just another scam?
Thank you!

I am not aware of any evidence that such a product will improve eyesight. The usual reasons that an eye is myopic (minus) are that the cornea has a higher curvature, or the eyeball has a longer length. I would have a complete exam with an ophthalmologist, and then review treatment options.
