Vision implants to replace reading glasses

The vision implants will let some people do away with reading glasses by automatically adjusting to bring near objects into focus.
The vision implants will be implanted in just ten minutes using topical anesthesia. The key to the technology will be the inlay, an extremely thin ring with an opening in the center that will be placed beneath the surface of the cornea. The inlay will be able to adjust automatically to focus the light entering the eye - much like a camera's aperture - and improve vision at all distances, though the device will be mostly intended to take the place of reading glasses.
