An Abbotsford optometrist will be among the speakers at TEDxVancouver on Nov. 14.
Dr. Garth Webb, the inventor of the Ocumetics bionic lens, will discuss this revolutionary new technology in his talk, Optic Marvel.
Through a painless procedure virtually identical to cataract surgery, Webb believes he will soon be able to deliver patients perfect vision in under eight minutes.
Webb is a 1977 graduate from the School of Optometry at the University of Waterloo, and has practised clinical optometry in Abbotsford for nearly 40 years.
He has been actively involved with innovation and product development for over 30 years and with adaptive lens technology for the past 10 years. He has spent about $3 million researching and developing the bionic lens technology.
