Dr. Hart Webb, who lives and works in British Columbia, has found a way to give people a great vision in just eight minutes.
A man is actively engaged in the development of innovative bionic lenses that can improve vision up to 3x 20/20. More recently, Canadians presented their lenses to colleagues during a meeting of the American Society, where issues of cataract and refractive surgery were discussed.
The ophthalmologist claims that his invention will deprive people with vision problems from the need to wear any glasses or lenses (both contact and progressive). In addition, bionic lenses are suitable for all patients, regardless of their age and general health.
Dr. Webb states that his invention will provide a truly noticeable improvement. "A person who could watch a clock from him at a distance of, for example, three meters and determine the exact time after the implantation of bionic lenses will be able to easily determine the time on A distance of ten meters. Such a world has not yet seen! ", - says Mr. Webb.
Lenses are made for each person under the order, taking into account his individual needs. The duration of the operation for the introduction of innovative lenses on average takes about eight minutes, but the results, according to an ophthalmologist from British Columbia, will be visible immediately.
The specially designed lenses (their shape resembles Mexican tacos) are placed in a syringe with a saline solution. Then the liquid is injected into the human eye, and after a few seconds the lens is opened and takes the desired shape. A patient immediately after surgery can literally look at the world with new eyes.
If clinical trials are successful and the invention justifies itself, then after two or three years bionic lenses will be tested on the inhabitants of the United States of America and Canada. Dr. Webb very much hopes that his invention will most radically help to change outdated treatments and minimize the use of a laser, which is known to not always have a positive effect on vision.
At this stage, lenses are tested on animals. If the tests give a positive result, then after some time the Canadian invention will be able to evaluate the blind people who, in an attempt to turn their eyes on, agreed to become volunteers.
The scientist, who had to wear glasses from an early childhood, does not hear how he suffers from people with poor eyesight. Because of this, many children develop a complex of inferiority, and they subsequently lead a closed way of life and can not arrange their personal lives.
For several years now, a man has been looking for a way to help patients see the world in all its glory without additional gadgets. Eight years ago the dream of an ophthalmologist began to come true. It was then that he became engaged in the development of bionic lenses. In order to achieve certain results, the scientist needed not only to make a lot of his own efforts, but also to spend an amount equal to three million dollars, which, given the significance of the discovery, is a trivial matter. By the way, Canadian founded his profile clinic, and also created a charitable foundation aimed at developing ophthalmology in third world countries.
