A new bionic eye lens currently in development would give humans 3x 20/20 vision, at any age


The lens, named the Ocumetics Bionic Lens, was developed by Dr. Garth Webb, an optometrist in British Columbia who was looking for a way to optimize eyesight regardless of a person’s health or age.




Webb says that anyone over the age of 25 is the best candidate, because that is when the eye is fully developed.

“This is vision enhancement that the world has never seen before,” he says, “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.“

The lens, which would be custom-made, is folded like a taco in a saline-filled syringe and placed in the eye, where it unravels itself within 10 seconds.


Well, would you look at that!


Looks promising , now i don't have vision problems "yet" but i am sure in the near future that might be an issue ,so this is good news !

This is fascinating. I don't exactly like the idea of a syringe anywhere near my eyes, but if this is as it says, I think I would go through with it.

No, that'll be next years' model. The initial surgery may not be bad, but the upgrade surgery? Well....

Neither can I, really. Just the thought of it makes me cringe. I'n so bad at the dentist, that they prescribe me Valium now just to calm me down beforehand, so I'm hoping maybe an optometrist could do the same. Lol

There's always a price that must be paid!

Intraocular Lens Implant (IOL) surgery is pretty common. What's amazing is that it took this long for somebody to develop a lens that gives "super human" vision.

Me too. I spend most of my day switching between different pairs of specs, but this new device gives both near and distant focus.

I can see this may be met with great hostility from specsavers etc!
At my age (almost 60) I have to get new specs every year as my sight slowly worsens, but with this device i'd only need one 8 minute op, and it lasts forever. This will be the end for all those spectacle companies.

Awesome. I'm all for this. I second the notion that ears need to be improved, ASAP. I wear glasses but only one eye is a little bad, my ears... are about the average for a 70 year old. Not good. Gimme something besides an amplifier that is going to deaden what is left all that much quicker. I mean we're at the beginning of the transhumanism era. Let the superhuamns reign over the AI as long as we can.

Exactly !

You just described my daily hassles too.

I have different specs for every damn thing I need to do... reading normal print, reading fine print, using the computer, driving, seeing short distances. Ugh.

Must. Have. Bionic. Lens.

Awesome, thanks. I wish he said what it was expected to cost, though. I've got to start saving for that!!
