Corrective eye drops could become an attractive alternative to glasses, contact lenses and laser surgery, thanks to two Israeli solutions that could radically alter the way people improve their vision.

Readers were very interested in learning that Orasis Pharmaceuticals is developing pharmaceutical-grade eye drops intended to improve near vision for several hours; and a technology from Bar-Ilan researchers, Nano-Drops, is in development as a solution to correct all refractive errors – farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism – using synthetic biocompatible protein nanoparticle eye drops applied in an individualized optical pattern stamped onto the cornea with fast, painless laser pulses.
