3D-printed eye cells could one day cure blindness.
The 21st century has seen the inception and growth in popularity of 3D printing. With well-known applications in architecture, manufacturing, and engineering, the technology is now increasingly being used in medicine. When combined with organic inks and thermoplastics, 3D printing technology has enabled the “bioprinting” of a range of human body parts, including 3D-printed eye cells. A group of scientists...

Braille contact lens technology is one of the latest innovations.
Researchers in Israel are working on a special kind of contact lens that they say will could enable the blind to see. The contact lens would use the eye’s tactile sensors to give blind people the ability to “feel” shapes with their eyes, much in the same way their fingers feel Braille. The bionic contact lens would have the...

Although night-vision goggle technology is at its peak, wouldn’t it be great if you could ditch the bulky headgear and pop in a pair of contacts? The United States Army thinks so. As the Pentagon continues to build a faster, lighter, and stronger soldier prototype, new technology in the form of night vision contact lenses could provide superior night...

An ipad app can actually improve your vision.
