Could the development of eyesight-improving eyedrops help eliminate the need for glasses?
Quite possibly, suggests new research coming out of Israel’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center and Bar-Ilan University.
A team of ophthalmologists at these institutes have invented and tested “nanodrops” which, combined with a laser process, reportedly results in improvements in both short- and long-sightedness.
The first of these steps involves an app on the patient’s smartphone or mobile device which measures their eye refraction.
The process of correction can be done at home without the need of a medical doctor.”.
As a result, patients would need to repeat the process every one to two months in order to maintain their superior eyesight.
We intend to finish in-vivo tests within one year and I hope that within two years the product may be available [on] the market. »
