Contact Lens Turns The Human Eye Into a Telescope
Researchers have created a potential solution to prevent the leading cause of blindness in adults.
Researchers from the US and Switzerland have created contact lenses for people suffering from age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness among older adults.
Day-to-day contact lenses only refocus the eye and do virtually nothing when trying to correct vision loss as a result of retina damage. However these new lenses have tightly fitting mirror surfaces that create a telescopic effect and are able to magnify the person’s vision.
