Bionic lenses provide ideal vision at any distance

Lens

The Canadian company Ocumetics Technology Corporation (OSS) began testing the prototype of an artificial eye lens. It will be installed instead of the natural lens, which is responsible for the ability to focus on distant and near objects. It will not solve all vision problems, but will provide new, incredible opportunities!

Technology “Bionic Lens” OSS is not disclosed in detail, commercial secret, after all. However, it is already known that a man-made lens can be installed into the living eye with the same tools and techniques that are used in cataract surgery. And this operation is not in vain called “the most common and successful” in ophthalmology – the risk for the first volunteers who wished to get artificial eyes is minimal.

The man-made lens does not break down, it is resistant to microbes and toxins, but most importantly it always performs the function of focusing the eye with perfect accuracy. A person not only will not have to squint, he will keep the ideal vision in any situation for decades. And even more, because an artificial lens can be tuned to an alternative mode, for example, having received “eagle vigilance.”

An additional bonus – being an object of synthetic, the lens can become a platform for placing microelectronics. For example, sensors to fix a picture and transfer it to a smartphone or directly into the bionic eye of another person. Alas, such a device is not able to restore sight to the blind, help with damage to the optic nerves and other diseases. It is not necessary to speak about complete replacement of living eyes with artificial eyes, however, work in this direction is proceeding at a rapid pace.
