世界上將不再有近視眼 仿生鏡片保持你完好的視力

加拿大一公司日前成功開發出一款名為「Ocumetic」的仿生鏡片。只需以注射的方式注入眼睛,大約10秒後,這種眼鏡就會自動在眼球中展開,原先不良的視力不但能夠被矯正,還能比1.0的視力更好。不過,該鏡片只適用於25周歲以上成人,該項技術正在取得國家政府的認可,最快2017年問世。

不用打麻藥,10秒鐘糾正!

為了研發這種仿生鏡片,這家公司花費8年時間,耗資大約300萬元。這種仿生鏡片實際上就是一種人造的晶狀體,移植方法也很簡單,類似白內障手術。只需要大約8分鐘,病人的視力即可矯正。

「Ocumetics仿生隱形眼鏡」實際上就像墨西哥卷餅(Taco)那樣摺疊著,可以使用充滿生理鹽水的注射器注入眼睛。大約10秒後,這種眼鏡就會自動在眼球中展開,你的視力立即就會被糾正過來。並且這是一種門診手術,根本不需要打麻藥或住院。

視力永久保持5.4,還不會患上白內障!

據稱,植入這種鏡片後,不論隨著年齡的增長,人們眼睛如何老化,都會保持完好的視力。也就是說,就算你活到100歲,你的視力還是保持5.4不變。目前使用者安裝仿生鏡片後,不但能矯正視力,視力還會比普通人還要好很多。韋伯說,仿生鏡片的技術非常安全,不會對眼睛產生副作用,同時也不會有閃光或是夜盲的問題,但僅限年齡超過25歲以上的成年人使用,因為超過這年紀的人眼睛結構才是完全成熟的。

研究者已經於4月在權威眼科醫師會議上向大家公開了這門頂尖技術,在加拿大及其他國家政府認可仿生鏡片的技術前,將會先進行動物實驗,再對視力不佳的近視患者進行測試,最快將在2017年正式出現在市面上。

目前最流行的雷射治療近視手術一直受到人們的質疑,如果這種仿生鏡真的成功,又將是一件顛覆性的發明。

帶眼鏡的人,是不是瞬間覺得自己有救了呢?



Dr. Garth Webb, an optometrist in British Columbia, canada has invented the Ocumetics Bionic Lens for giving perfect vision to the patients with vision problems.

Webb says people who have the specialized lenses surgically inserted would never get cataracts because their natural lenses, which decay over time, would have been replaced


According to him, with the Bionic Lens, Perfect eyesight would result "no matter how crummy your eyes are".

The Bionic Lens would be an option for someone who depends on corrective lenses and is over about age 25, when the eye structures are fully developed.

This Bionic Lens will improve your vision three times better than 20/20 vision . That means, 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

Dr. Garth Webb says the painless procedure, identical to cataract surgery, would take about eight minutes and a patient's sight would be immediately corrected.

The custom-made lens, folded like a taco in a saline-filled syringe, would be injected in an eye, where it would unravel itself within 10 seconds.

Webb, who is the CEO of Ocumetics Technology , has spent the last eight years and about $3 million for researching and developing this Bionic Lens, and for getting international patents and securing a biomedical manufacturing facility in Delta, British Columbia in Canada.


Pending clinical trials on animals and then blind human eyes, the Bionic Lens could be available in Canada and elsewhere in about two years, depending on regulatory processes in various countries.

Alongside his Bionic Lens venture, Webb has set up a foundation called the Celebration of Sight, which would donate money to organizations providing eye surgery in developing countries to improve people's quality of life.

"Perfect eyesight should be a human right," he says.
