New bionic lens could give you perfect vision for the rest of your life

Wearing corrective eye glasses could soon be a thing of the past. The Ocumetics Bionic Lens, invented by Dr. Garth Webb of Ocumetics Technology Corp, claims to be a painless implant that could change impaired vision forever. In fact, Webb claims the lens will go beyond the standard 20/20 vision, giving patients the super power of seeing three times better.

Presented last month at a cataract and refractive surgery conference, the Ocumetic Bionic Lens was created after eight years of research and experimentation. The project itself has cost a whopping $3 million in funding for research, international patents, and trials. Webb says that with his procedure, which takes just eight painless minutes, every person could have extraordinary eyesight.

Instead of working like a contact lens, the Bionic Lens acts similarly to cataract surgery, adhering to the eye’s natural lens. The procedure can be done in an out patient office, its steps simply having a saline solution with the lens flushed into the eye with a syringe. After 10 seconds, the folded lens opens up, and moves itself over the eye’s natural lens. Webb says that immediately after the procedure, vision is totally corrected, allowing patients to see farther and more clearly.

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.
