    Default 8 Minute Surgery Will Give You Superhuman Vision Forever.

    A new bionic eye lens currently in development would give humans 3x 20/20 vision, at any age.

    The lens, named the Ocumetics Bionic Lens, was developed by Dr. Garth Webb, an*optometrist in British Columbia who was looking for a way to optimize eyesight regardless of a person’s health or age.

    With this remarkable lens, patients would have perfect vision, ending the need for driving glasses, progressive lenses, and contacts, all of which are set to*become a dim memory as the eye-care industry is transformed,*CBC reports.

    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.

    It would help me. I can't get Lasik because of caratakosis. The same condition also makes it nearly impossible for me to wear contacts. I have to wear glasses.

    I stole this article from Reddit. One of the top comments are a optometrists saying this isn't possible.

    I might buy some stocks in case it is.

    I've considered Lasik but want to wait and see if this is true or not.

    No idea, but I loved that show! And, the fact he was married to Farrah Fawcett doesn't hurt either...

    It's been a humbling transition. I didn't have to wear glasses until I was 32. I consistently scored 38 out of 40 at the firing range. Then my eyesight changed....

    There's the issue.

    We already have amazing hearing technology (Esteem) but that shit costs like 50 grand. So its floundering and will probably sink in a pool of wasted VC.

    Could very well be the same problem here.

    No lol, I just thought a website like that would not fit in with your wider societal views.
