Will Glasses Stand the Test of Time?
Popular Mechanics recently published an online article titled “10 Things That Will Disappear in the Next 110 Years.” We thought we would share that list with you:
- Video game consoles
- Postage stamps
- C batteries
- Snow tires
- Telephone poles
- Flathead screwdrivers
The article didn’t go into any specifics on why the publication’s editors felt these items would no longer be relevant. However, at Inland Eye Institute we can take a guess at one reason why the #1 item on the list might phase out: LASIK vision correction. Colton and Rancho Cucamonga LASIK is already helping thousands of people in our area eliminate their need for glasses or contacts. It’s a laser procedure that corrects vision for people who are nearsighted, farsighted or who have astigmatism, but it’s not for everyone. If a patient’s corneas are too thin or if other eye problems exist, an alternative to LASIK may be recommended. The only way to know for sure if LASIK might reduce or eliminate your need for eyeglasses is to schedule a free LASIK Consultation at Inland Eye Institute by calling 909-937-9230 or visiting inlandeye.com.
It’s possible that no one reading this blog will know for sure if all of these 10 things will be gone in 110 years. But it’s going to be interesting to see what the future holds for all types of technology, including vision correction.
