It is really odd how cyberpunk 2020 predicted things lile this 30 years ago.

Hmm. Good point! Whilst you faffed around getting it out of your eyes, the enemy could take the opportunity to kill you. Unless you only had it in your dominant eye; then you could simply close that one and use your other normal-vision eye. You might have limited depth perception, but it's better than winding up dead. And if both eyes had the vision enhancing lens, that could compensate. Plus, it would be interesting to see what the two could do together.

i wonder how long it would take your hands and your new eyes to co-ordinate. Brain overload...

This is our future, we'll have cybernetic humanoids with extraordinary abilities via technological device implants.

A good tedtalk for this is -

OMG !

I wouldn't hesitate to get this done !


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.


Depends how cheap/expensive/risk free it is. Lasik was veiwed the same way I imagine.

Wow this is very cool, I had artificial lenses implanted in both my eyes a few years ago..yes through the side of the eyeball.

It actaully wasn't too bad, the anticipation is worse than the procedure. I need readers for up close stuff now..this bionic deal will be a game changer.

collective-evolution is a terrible source.

Anyway, I hate to be a party pooper but here's what an actual ophthalmologist has to say:


Ophthalmologist here.

This keeps getting posted and is a lot more hype than substance.

This is nothing more than an intraocular lens. We use these every day in cataract surgery already when we remove a patient's current lens and replace it with an artificial one.

The "holy grail" of intraocular lens technology has always been a lens that offers a complete range of vision (distance, intermediate, near) much like when we are young (for people without glasses).

Looking at the website for this lens' company, there is very little in the way of explanation on how this lens works. There is no press on this in the ophthalmic community.

This lens is being promoted without any proof that it works and without any details on how it works. I wouldn't be surprised if the hype was coming from the maker of the lens to drum up investors.

Until I see something about HOW this lens works, I'm not holding my breath. If this truly does what the inventor says (doubtful), if would obviously be a game changer and I'm sure I'll be the first in line to implant it into my patients.

Tl;dr This is pure hype and no substance. No proof this lens works and no details on how it works. Don't hold your breath.

Remember kids, cross check your sources before jumping on the hype train.

First, not everyone will be a candidate for this. Those who do sign up for it will likely be paying thousands out-of-pocket. There are already similar implants, the performance of which falls well short of what is promised. Not to mention the scores of eye diseases that will affect vision regardless of how good the implant may or may not be. I wouldnt count on this changing the world much. Certainly wont be "superhuman forever". The retina is only capable of a certain level of resolution. People max out at 20/15 generally, very rarely 20/10. A lens implant cannot improve that.

This article says the company's suggested price is $3,200 per eye.

bionic lens can restore high quality vision

On the good news no one will be able to his poop at 3x the range or resolution.

That's truly amazing .
But how much brain power you have to constantly use to convert 3 times the normal information of your optic nerves into these ultra high definition images,

Seriously now, it could lead to headaches, or brain fatigue... or something like that.
Also enhancing our vision, might have a negative effect to our other senses, or other (background) brain activities
Maybe our brain is balanced to our current senses and we weren't supposed to have hyper vision,

Anyway after 3 or 4 or more generations of using this lens, our brain will eventually evolve.
