In May of 2015, a Canadian ophthalmologist announced that he created a bionic lens that could correct a person's vision for life, potentially resulting in vision three times better than 20/20.The product of eight years of research and $3 million in funding, the Ocumetics Bionic Lens is said to require a painless 8-minute in-office procedure that requires no anesthesia.
To put it in, the specialist folds up the custom-made lens like a tiny taco to fit it into a saline-filled syringe. Next, he or she uses the syringe to place it in your eye through a super-small incision, then leaves it there to unravel over about 10 seconds. Then you're done!
