Innovative new eye drops could soon restore eyesight to 20/20 without any invasive procedures, The Week reports.
Researchers at Israel's Bar-Ilan University have created Nano-Drops using nanotechnology, which involves creating and manipulating materials that are miniscule in size — usually between one and 100 nanometers (nm) in width. For comparison, a human hair is usually 60,000 to 80,000 nm in width.
Nano-Drops were created by a team at Bar-Ilan's Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA) and they address three of the most common eyesight problems: hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and presbyopia (age-related blurriness).
Nano-Drops are filled with synthetic nanoparticles designed to fix the refractive errors that cause hyperopia, myopia, or presbyopia.
