Believe it or not, in ancient times, eye diseases were treated with primitive tools (we’re talking very sharp–and terrifying–blades) and spells were performed as a means of addressing medical concerns. Thankfully, the world of optometry (and medicine more broadly) looks much different now.
Modern technology has allowed for major advancements in the field of medicine, and eye care has definitely reaped the benefits. There have been numerous noteworthy optometry innovations, especially over the last few decades.
The science of optometry dates back thousands of years, and it took centuries upon centuries for simple eye care—such as eye glasses—to evolve.
Needless to say, we’ve come a long way.
Promising new innovations are on the horizon in the eyecare world, and we’re outlining some fascinating discoveries that have made a profound mark on the field. If you ask us, eye care is getting more exciting by the day.
