They create drops to correct myopia and hyperopia


As time passes, and due to the need for updates, innumerable mobiles and electronic devices have been created, guilty of sight fatigue, and this is much more noticeable now than in the past decade.

Fortunately, correct vision problems such as myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism is not so far from being a reality: scientists created a few drops that modify the view, managing to stimulate and improve it.

A proposal made by the Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials of the Bar-Ilan University indicates that with the application of nanogotas you can correct the refractive index of the cornea.

First, the degree of myopia that an individual presents will be measured through an application in the cell phone; also, with another app the eye is scanned by means of a laser print (different from the traditional) and fill in the spaces marked as unstable or that should be corrected.

In the last step, the drops with non-toxic nanoparticles that will act in the areas indicated by the laser will be used to correct myopia and hyperopia. The ease of its application seeks that more people do not let the problem run without addressing it.

To obtain the necessary data from the cornea, the laser must be digitally impregnated using the application and adjusting its size to obtain a real result, which seeks to change the path of light reaching the cornea, thus nanodrops or nanoparticles will do their homework effectively.

Although pigs were used for the study (because their eyes are very similar to humans) and the result was positive, researchers must perform more tests. The drops act on the damaged parts, avoiding invasive methods such as surgery. Undoubtedly they are a good option, since it is estimated that by 2025 70 percent of the world population will have vision problems.
