Ocumetics Bionic Lens could give you vision 3 times better than 20/20 | QPT. Imagine being able to see three times better than 20/20 vision without wearing glasses or contact lenses — even at age 100 or more — with the help of bionic lenses implanted in your eyes.
Dr. Garth Webb, an optometrist in British Columbia, canada has invented the Ocumetics Bionic Lens for giving perfect vision to the patients with vision problems.
Webb says people who have the specialized lenses surgically inserted would never get cataracts because their natural lenses, which decay over time, would have been replaced
According to him, with the Bionic Lens, Perfect eyesight would result "no matter how crummy your eyes are".
The Bionic Lens would be an option for someone who depends on corrective lenses and is over about age 25, when the eye structures are fully developed.
This Bionic Lens will improve your vision three times better than 20/20 vision . That means, If you can just barely see the clock at 10 feet, when you get the Bionic Lens you can see the clock at 30 feet away
Dr. Garth Webb says the painless procedure, identical to cataract surgery, would take about eight minutes and a patient's sight would be immediately corrected.
The custom-made lens, folded like a taco in a saline-filled syringe, would be injected in an eye, where it would unravel itself within 10 seconds.
Webb, who is the CEO of Ocumetics Technology , has spent the last eight years and about $3 million for researching and developing this Bionic Lens, and for getting international patents and securing a biomedical manufacturing facility in Delta, British Columbia in Canada.
Pending clinical trials on animals and then blind human eyes, the Bionic Lens could be available in Canada and elsewhere in about two years, depending on regulatory processes in various countries.
Alongside his Bionic Lens venture, Webb has set up a foundation called the Celebration of Sight, which would donate money to organizations providing eye surgery in developing countries to improve people's quality of life.
"Perfect eyesight should be a human right," he says.
