Google submitted a patent for a “bionic eye,” Thursday.
It would allow doctors to use technology to correct impaired vision.
The device could be described as an electronic contact lens. It would be implanted surgically and could be adjusted to allow the user to see things in focus far away or close up after being implanted.
Don’t throw your glasses out yet though, the submission of a patent does not meant that it will necessarily be produced any time soon or at all, but Google is considering it in the future.
