New lens may fix vision in hours

A new FDA study could have answers on helping patients to see clearly again without glasses or even Lasik treatments.

Doctor Kerry Assil is leading a study with a tiny lens that is placed into a patient's cornea.

The treatment takes effect after only a few hours and vision improves over time.

The study is still experimental but could be available to the public soon.
