So What IS This New Technology?
People, even over 100 years old, still having the possibility of up to three times better than 20/20 vision with the help of Bionic Lenses implanted in the eyes – no glasses or contacts needed?
This is what the inventor of Ocumetics Bionic Lens, Dr Garth Webb from British Columbia, Canada, stating that patients would have perfect vision and that driving glasses, progressive lenses and that contact lenses would eventually be a dim memory as the eye-care industry goes through a massive transformation.
Webb states that people who have the specialised lenses surgically inserted would never develop cataracts because their natural lenses, which decay over time, would have been replaced.
“Perfect eyesight would be the result, no matter how poor the eyesight was,” Webb says.
He further added that Bionic Lens would be suitable for someone over the age of 25, whose eye structure is fully developed, and who is dependent on corrective lenses…

8 Minute Surgery
Showing a Bionic Lens (pictured previously, which resembles a tiny button), Webb claims this tiny device will enable vision enhancement such as the world has not previously seen.
If a person can barely see a clock at 10 feet, with the Bionic Lens it can clearly been seen at 30 feet away, demonstrating how a custom-made lens that folds like a taco in a saline-filled syringe would be placed in an eye where it would unravel itself within 10 seconds. Webb stated the procedure, which takes approximately eight minutes is painless and identical to cataract surgery. The correction of the patient’s sight is immediate.
Webb, is the CEO of Ocumetics Technology Corp. Spending the past eight years and around $3 million in research and development the Bionic Lens, getting international patents and securing a biomedical manufacturing facility in Delta, B.C.
His work has been fuelled by the obsession he had to free himself, and others, from the need for corrective lenses which he himself had required since early childhood. Says Webb,
“My heroes were cowboys and cowboys just did not wear glasses. At age 45 I had to struggle with reading glasses, which like most people, I found was a great insult. To this day I curse my progressive glasses. I also wear contact lens, which I also curse just about every day.”

Exciting New Technology
The culmination of Webb’s work was at a recent presentation of the lens to 14 top opthalmologists in San Diego the day prior to an annual gathering of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
Opthalmologist Dr Vincent DeLuise, who teaches at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, and at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, states he arranged several meetings on April 17, when experts in various fields were introduced to the Bionic Lens. He stated the surgeons from Canada, The United States, Australia and the Dominican Republic, were impressed with the presentation and some will be involved in clinical trials for Webb’s Bionic Lens.
The Bionic Lens have created excitement among very experienced surgeons and although they’ve seen products not work in the past, they believe that this might actually work and are all eager to be part of the advisory board to help Webb on his journey, according to DeLuise.
“I think this device is going to bring us closer to the holy grail of excellent vision at all ranges – distant, intermediate and close.” Webb states.

Clinical Trials On Animals and Blind Humans
Pending clinical trials on animals and then blind human eyes, the Bionic Lens could be available in Canada and elsewhere in about two years, depending on regulatory processes in various countries.
As for laser surgery, which requires the burning away of healthy corneal tissue and includes potential problems with glare, the need for nighttime driving glasses and later cataracts developing, Webb states the Bionic Lens may make that option obsolete.
Alongside his Bionic Lens venture, Webb has set up a foundation called the Celebration of Sight, which would donate money to organizations providing eye surgery in developing countries to improve quality of life.
“Perfect eyesight should be a human right” Webb says.
DeLuise, who has been asked to manage the foundation, says funds would also be funnelled to some of the world’s best eye research institutes. “He has the technology that may make all of this happen”, he says, adding that several companies have spent tens of millions of dollars trying to develop a similar lens, though none have come close.
