Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Yes, this is possible now--no need to wait. This is called clear lens exchange.
Doctor DanB : Thousands every day have their natural crystalline lenses removed and replaced with an artificial lens which can provide them relatively little to no dependence on glasses for their every day visual demands. Does this make sense?
