Though 20/20 vision is the dream for most people, especially those with vision impairment, but what if we said 3 x 20/20 vision is possible?

With Dr. Garth Webb’s Ocumetics Bionic Lens, that is exactly what you would achieve when you undergo the 8-minute painless surgery to have them implanted. The bionic lens can be used on anyone’s eyes, regardless of age or health, and would last forever.


While many people today need glasses for everyday activities such as driving, reading, and just plain living, the eye care industry is working to forever eliminate the need for both glasses and contacts.

With this surgery, patients would never need glasses or contacts and they would also never get cataracts because the lens replaces their natural eye lens, where cataracts form and cloud a person’s vision.

Webb doesn’t recommend that children undergo the surgery, and says that anyone over the age of 25 is the best candidate because the eye is fully developed at this age. He told CBC,

“This is vision enhancement that the world has never seen before. 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.”

As far as surgery goes, each lens would be custom-made to fit the person’s eye and is folded like a taco in a saline-filled syringe. It is then placed in the eye, where it unravels itself within 10 seconds. It takes up to 8 minutes for it to take effect and the patient’s vision is corrected immediately.

Research for the lens has been underway for nine years now and has cost $3 million in research and development fees. Though the design has been successfully adapted for mass production, it’s estimated that with pending clinical trials, it will take up to two years to be released in Canada and Europe. Approval from the FDA will take two to three years longer.

Webb’s design has been called “clever” by other top ophthalmologists and one of them, Dr. Vincent DeLuise, who teaches at Yale University and Weill Cornell Medical College, said this about the lens:


“I think this device is going to bring us closer to the holy grail of excellent vision at all ranges—distant, intermediate and near.”

With this new technology, Webb is hoping to do away with laser eye surgery because it’s not as efficient as it should be, despite years of using it on patients. He said that,

“Perfect eyesight should be a human right.”
