Wearing corrective eye glasses, contacts and even laser surgery could soon be a thing of the past. Introducing the Ocumetics Bionic Lens. Invented by Dr. Garth Webb of Ocumetics Technology Corp, this implant is touted to go beyond the standard 20/20 vision, three times better to be exact, giving patients the super vision. The procedure is similar to that of cataract surgery, which adheres to the eye’s natural lens. It starts by simply having a saline solution with the lens flushed into the eye with a syringe, and after 10 seconds, the folded lens opens up, and moves itself over the eye’s natural lens. There is no healing time, as patients will have improved vision immediately after the surgery. Continue reading for another video and more information.
“Patients with the bionic lens implanted would be safeguarded against cataracts in the future, strengthening the eye’s natural lens which is prone to decay. The procedure is also thought to be safer than invasive laser surgery, with the simple saline-flush process. Webb hopes his patent will be available as soon as 2017, after more clinical trials,” according to Inhabitat.
