Innovative new eye drops could soon do the trick, restoring your eyesight to 20/20 without any invasive procedures. Researchers have created eye drops, called Nano-Drops, that correct eyesight problems using something called nanotechnology. The field of nanotechnology involves creating and manipulating materials that are miniscule in size.

Is this something you would get? What do you think of this development in eye care?

Not tested on humans and then they show videos of humans putting in eye drops. I shudder to think of what the test subjects are.

Wonderful news. I have been suffering for many years now. This seems like a godsend. Please let it be a long-term solution.

Think of what medical research and science can do for the species with more economic resource rather than trillions spent on weapons of mass destruction.

Looks really interesting would depend on the cost whether I would use them. Also would need to know how long it lasts, as could be dangerous if out driving and suddenly wore off!!

If it was proven to work 99% of the time without any side affects or loss of vision if a person decided to stop usingthem. Other researchers are trying to develop nano tech to use internally for other medical problems.

This requires thorough studies and tests, nanoparticles are too unpredictable and their effects on human bodies are still unknown. But like anything new and considered unknown it is just scary.

They want you to spend your money. Bates Method, pinhole lenses, proper diet and vitamins have been curing these ailments for years. It's not as expensive though and they can't profit so much off of it so you will never hear about it like this. Lil machines in your eye...hmm.

I say no because what if u suddenly can't see properly anymore? What if they make u worse, or blind?! Not enough testing n just a huge risk!
