Goodbye to prescription glasses with these drops

 Goodbye eyeglasses! New drops correct double vision and restore your eyes as if your mother gave birth to you again

Correcting myopia could be easier than resorting to surgery, as researchers at Bar Ilán University have developed some nano-drops for the eyes along with a technology to use to correct vision problems. So we will say goodbye to glasses!

According to a publication in UNAM Global, it is estimated that by 2025, 70% of the world's young population will be nearsighted due to the increase in the use of electronic and mobile devices.

Therefore, this new development can be an effective alternative! Research by scientists from Bar Ilán University's Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials has developed technology to address visual problems, such as nearsightedness and farsightedness. This is with the use of nano-drops that have been able to correct the refractive index of the cornea and thus restore visual strength.

The development of this technology to correct nearsightedness and farsightedness consists of a series of steps.

  • The first is through a cell phone app, where each person can measure their eyesight or deficiencies.

  • The second step is to connect a laser device to another cell app, which will send laser pulses into the eye and create a mark in the spaces that need to be corrected.

  • The third and final step is to apply eye drops that have non-toxic protein nanoparticles, which help correct nearsightedness and farsightedness in the marked parts of the laser.
In this research study, pig eyes were tested (because they are similar to those of humans) and the result was successful. So this is a significant advance in correcting visual problems, because, unlike surgery, this treatment is less invasive because the components of the nanodrop only correct the defect in the eye.
Although this progress in testing is continuing, next year it is expected to begin reaching humans.

Do you think you dare to try this new technology?
