New bionic lens could give you perfect vision for the rest of your life
Instead of working like a contact lens, the Bionic Lens acts similarly to cataract surgery, adhering to the eye’s natural lens. The procedure can be done in an out patient office, its steps simply having a saline solution with the lens flushed into the eye with a syringe. After 10 seconds, the folded lens opens up, and moves itself over the eye’s natural lens. Webb says that immediately after the procedure, vision is totally corrected, allowing patients to see farther and more clearly.
