This system can be used through a mobile phone application, which will help the user measure his eyesight and the deficiencies in his vision. Then, he can connect a laser device to another mobile application which will send laser pulses into his eyes and create a mark in the spaces that requires correction.

Thereafter, the user needs to apply this eye drop containing nano particles of non-toxic proteins, in the marked parts. The method is still in an experimental phase and will be tested on humans next year.
