If you’re like me, your vision is totally shitty. You can’t get by without glasses, contacts hurt your eyes, and you’re about ready to just go get a blindfold and one of those sticks that blind people use. If you’re like me, you’re considering laser vision surgery, but that costs a lot and the idea of someone using lasers on your eyeballs freaks you out.
If you’re like me, you think this article, B.C. doctor says perfect vision possible with Bionic Lens, is totally awesome.
Dr. Garth Webb of Ocumetics has created a lens that would be implanted in your eye to replace the natural lens there. This would result in superior vision without the deterioration we see in natural eyes.
Now, this technology is only in prototype stage, but what if it can really do what it advertises? I imagine there will be stumbling blocks along the way. There always are, and it’s usually a good idea to temper optimism with practicality. But if this procedure really does end up being as fast and painless as advertised? Certainly many professionals in the industry are excited.
Maybe the day is coming where everyone can have perfect vision.
My question is: perfect vision is awesome, but can you also make my eyes look like cat eyes? ;)
What do you think, readers?
