For those who require corrective lenses and are over the age of 25, the Ocumetics Bionic Lens may be the best option to correct vision permanently.

Inspired by his own struggle with the nuisance of wearing glasses and corrective lenses, optometrist Garth Webb from British Columbia, the CEO of Ocumetics Technology Corp. helped develop a lens that can be surgically inserted in a painless, eight-minute procedure that would correct vision immediately and take away the need for glasses and corrective lenses. The procedure would involve a custom-made lens being folded and injected into the eye.

The ingenious lens has the potential to make vision three times better than 20/20. The lens is undergoing clinical trials on animals and then blind humans to ensure safety and performance. It could be available for sale within the next two years.
