Dr. Garth Webb has developed a new bionic lens for your eye that gives humans triple 20/20 vision at any age. It’s called Ocumetics Bionic Lens, and it could be a radical gamechanger for those with macular disorders.
With this lens, patients would have flawless vision. No more glasses for driving or reading and no more invasive contact lenses either. Glasses will one day be a thing of the past.
Even better is the fact that people who get the lens surgically inserted will never get cataracts, because the lens replaces that of their natural eye, which inevitably decays over time.
Webb says that anyone over the age of 25 is the best candidate, because that is when the eye is fully developed.
“This is vision enhancement that the world has never seen before,” says Dr. Webb “If you can just barely see the clock at 10 feet, when you get the Bionic Lens you can see the clock at 30 feet away.”
The surgery is fast and painless, all told taking about 8 minutes. There’s next to no recovery time too. Your vision is simply corrected immediately and permanently.
The project has been in development now for eight years and has cost a total of $3 million to perfect. It all started with Dr. Webb’s mission to permanently correct his own poor vision, as well as others like him who’ve had to use eyeglasses since childhood.
“My heroes were cowboys, and cowboys just did not wear glasses,” Dr. Webb says.
“Perfect eyesight should be a human right,” he says.
