There is a new bionic eye lens currently in development that would give humans 3x 20/20 vision at all ages . For life.
This remarkable lens allow patients have a perfect view negating the need for all glasses and contact lenses .
The industry in general is due to a massive shock that improved technology and products we see today are carried to the next level, reports CBC.
The Bionic Ocumetics lens was developed by Dr. Garth Webb, an optometrist in British Columbia, I was looking for a way to optimize the view regardless of health or age of a person.
What is more, people who receive surgically inserted lens will never develop cataracts due to the fact that the lens replaces the natural eye -. that inevitably decays with time
“This is to improve the view that the world has never seen before,” says Dr. Webb
“If only you can see the clock at 10 feet, when you reach the bionic lens you can see the clock at 30 feet away. ”
is said that anyone over 25 years is a suitable candidate that the eye is fully developed at this age. The lens, which is made to measure, is bent in a form of dowels and a syringe with saline and placed in the eye, which unwinds itself in less than 10 seconds.
surgery painlessly 8 minutes.
Dr. Webb suggests the bionic lens will allow people to see never felt levels humans before beings and replace the need for glasses and contact lenses. It also goes on to say that the surgery can be done within 8 minutes sight and the patient’s vision immediately corrected.
The projest so far has paid $ 3 million and took eight years to date. Webb speaks passionately and openly about the “obsession” that has Torid the world of invasive corrective lenses since I was 10 years old when he began often complains of bulky glasses that had to carry.
Webb recently presented the lens to the best ophthalmologists in San Diego 14 during a meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. Surgeons around the world were overwhelmed and scientifically intrigued by his “unique and intelligent” design.
“I think this device will bring us closer to the holy grail of excellent vision at all ranges . – Distant, intermediate and near,” Dr. Vincent DeLuise a ophthalmologistat both Yale University and Weill Cornell Medical College in New York
Getting the ball rolling
the lens currently awaiting clinical trials in animals and humans then blind. Canada could become the first nation to adopt the lens in about two years, depending on the specific regulatory processes, says Webb.
Dr. Webb is hoping that his bionic lens irradicate the need for laser eye surgery, a procedure that is still not as efficient as it could be and often can lead to complications.
This is just the beginning, with advances in bionics that appear regularly and quickly, who knows what the future holds for our species. Judging by this news, all have perfect vision, that’s for sure.
