HD Lens Implants Promises HD Vision for All

December 3, 2009

Scientists in the U.K. have come up with a new method of vision improvement which they are hailing as the biggest leap in human optics technology in sixty years. The advancement promises what could be considered "high definition" sight for anyone willing to undergo the procedure.

Using artificial lenses made from light-sensitive silicon, the implants are said to give patients sight better than 20/20 - essentially "HD" visual acuity. The lenses can also be adjusted post-surgery to fine tune sight and allow for biofocal and varifocal use.

We're about one step away from a William Gibson novel, people.
