London, Aug 25 - Tired of wearing eyeglasses? Scientists have developed a technique that could see reading glasses gone forever.

Soon it may replace laser surgery that still requires reading glasses in dim light.

In this technique, a tiny implant known as raindrop is placed under the cornea to solve vision problems linked to ageing.

Raindrop can not stop eyes from ageing. But it can help check deterioration in eyesight caused by the ageing, said Mark Wevill, an opthalmic surgeon at Space Healthcare in Royal Leamington Spa, a famous spa town in Warwickshire.

Wevill has completed the surgery on handful of patients.

The technique takes only 10 minutes to complete.

During the process, anaesthetic droplets are inserted into the patient's eye so they remain conscious throughout as the implant is placed under a flap of the cornea, Daily Mail reported.

It corrects near medium vision by changing the shape of the cornea with the central section becoming steeper, it reported.
