THE 8 MINUTE SURGERY THAT WILL GIVE YOU SUPERHUMAN VISION. FOREVER
A new bionic eye lens which is still developing could give humans 3x 20/20 vision, at any age.
These eye lens are named as Ocumetics Bionic Lens and are developed by Dr. Garth Webb, an optometrist in British Columbia who tried to find a way to maximize vision despite of an individual’s health or age.
With the help of this amazing lens, people would have great eyesight and there will be no need of driving glasses, progressive lenses and contacts anymore, which are set to become a dim memory as the eye-care industry is transformed, according to CBS.
What is amazing with this lens is that the people who decide to get them surgically applied will never suffer from cataracts, because the lens replaces that part of the eyes, which in time drops off.
According to Webb everyone older than 25 years old is a perfect candidate because the eye is completely developed at this stage.
“This is eyesight booster that the world has never seen before” he said, “If you have difficulties to see the clock at 10 feet away, with the help of Bionic Lens you will be able to see the clock at 30 feet away.”
The lens will be custom-made, will be folded in a saline-filled syringe and applied in the eye, where it disentangles itself in just 10 seconds.
Quick & Painless Surgery
According to Webb the surgery will be over in just 8 minutes and improve the patient’s eyesight at the same moment.
The project has been in the lab for the last eight years, and it was costing around 3 million dollars for researching and development fees, together with the acquiring of international patents and the acquiring of a biomedical manufacturing facility in Delta, B.C.
He is motivated to complete his mission by the “obsession” to get rid himself and other people from corrective problems since he was a child, when he was ashamed by his saddled glasses.
“My heroes were cowboys, but I have never seen a cowboy that wears glasses,” said Webb.
Webb’s hard work was lately acknowledged after he demonstrated the lens to 15 top ophthalmologists in San Diego on the meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
The experts that came from around the world were amazed by this “smart” design.
“I believe that this device will take us closer to the holy grail of perfect eyesight at all ranges-distant, intermediate and near,” said Dr. Vincent DeLuise, an ophthalmologist who is a professor at both Yale University and Weill Cornell Medical College in New York.
Trials & Tribulations
Pending clinical tests on animals and then blind human eyes, the Bionic Lens will be disposable in Canada and everywhere in the world within 2 years, in dependence of regulatory processes in different countries.
Webb hopes that this lens will put an end to the need of laser eye surgery, which is not an effective method as it could be.
“People deserve to have perfect eyesight,”-Webb said.
