Quote from: Dark Lightning on October 06, 2018, 02:25:20 PMThat's a pretty neat tech! I'll stick with specs, though. I'm a Luddite, that way.
Quote from: Asmodean on October 07, 2018, 08:42:44 AMI see!Fixed focus, that's basically a hard lens? The muscles are unable to vary its shape? Am I onto something?
Quote from: Tank on October 07, 2018, 04:01:46 PMCorrect. I got cataracts in both lenses and they had to be replaced.
Quote from: Icarus on October 08, 2018, 12:22:39 AMI had a similar experience that involved some of the details that the Asmo describes. Mine was for a routine cataract surgery in my left eye. Later laser treatment was not unpleasant except for the sharp cracking sounds in my head when the laser was so repeatedly discharged.. I had previously had un-admitted difficulties while driving at night. After the surgery, Huzza! I can see where I am going and have the ability to see the dump truck (lorry for you Brits) that I was previously about to hit.
QuoteMy opthalmologist surgean was a comedian who kept me in laughter all the while. He asked me what I wanted from my eyes. I said that I would like 21 year old eyes. He said that he had a wish for a 21 year old pecker. That man was a graduate physicist with a masters degree. He came to his senses and continued his education to become an ophomologist.......... where the money is. I say this to agree with the Asmos cost of $6K US which is not merely chopped liver, to be sure. Good on the wizards who can make it possible for us to see again.

I got cataracts in both lenses and they had to be replaced.Is it possible to swap those lenses for something focusable? Or are you generally satisfied/don't want to incur the cost? Or the tech simply not quite there yet?
