20-20 vision in a bottle #health #rebootme

A research team from Bar-Ilan University’s Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA) have innovated “Nano-Drops,” which in the future, could correct impaired vision and replace spectacles and contact lenses. This would also potentially replace laser correction.

The self applied drops are synthetic nanoparticles, measuring between 1 &  100nm (nanometers) in width, that adjust the outside and superficial layer of the cornea to modify the “refractive index,” the ability of the cornea to focus your projected vision on the eye’s retina. The process takes milli-seconds and can be self applied.
