No more eyeglasses?

New Eyedrops Could Repair Corneas, Make Glasses Unnecessary

A team of Israeli scientists have developed a kind of eyedrop that can heal damaged corneas and fix a patient’s nearsightedness or longsightedness.

The patented “nanodrops”, as they are called by the ophthalmologists at Bar-Ilan University, were successfully used to improve the vision of pigs. If shown to have the same results during clinical testing on humans later this year, the treatment could waive the need for eyeglasses.

Additionally, the research team found that the nanodrops could be developed to create multifocal vision correction so they could see things at various distances similar to the effects of wearing bifocal eyeglasses.
