Using “Nanodrops” to Repair Corneas Could Ultimately Replace Glasses
Researchers Invent Nano-Drops That Improve Nearsightedness and Farsightedness
Nano-Drops May Offer New Alternative to Current Methods of Vision Correction
A revolutionary, cutting-edge technology, developed by researchers at Bar-Ilan University’s Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA), has the potential to provide a new alternative to eyeglasses, contact lenses, and laser correction for refractive errors.
The technology, known as Nano-Drops, was developed by Dr. David Smadja (Ophthalmologist from Shaare Zedek Medical Center), Prof. Zeev Zalevsky, from Bar-Ilan’s Kofkin Faculty of Engineering, and Prof. Jean-Paul Moshe Lellouche, Head of the Department of Chemistry at Bar-Ilan. A related patent on this new invention was recently filed by Birad – Research & Development Company Ltd., the commercializing company of Bar-Ilan University. Steve Elbaz is a Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer of the new technology.
