Biologically Inspired Human Eye Lens Technology

Science Daily reports on an interesting new piece of biologically-inspired technology:

Drawing heavily upon nature for inspiration, a team of researchers has created a new artificial lens that is nearly identical to the natural lens of the human eye. This innovative lens, which is made up of thousands of nanoscale polymer layers, may one day provide a more natural performance in implantable lenses to replace damaged or diseased human eye lenses, as well as consumer vision products; it also may lead to superior ground and aerial surveillance technology.

  1. Great for dealing with theb lens and more power to them.
    Yet eyesight healing must deal with problems of the optic nerve and so on.
    Copying nature might not do this but instead getting to the laws of nature about eyesight might open the door to healing.
    Creationism in seeing a single creator with possibly a single idea on eyesight is more suited to discover healing then ideas about eyes being created easily out of mutations/errors in complicated things.
    The few types of eyes found possibly is a clue there is just one type but this equation must be discovered.
    There is hope here.
