Future of glasses?

Recommended Posts

I have been waiting for ages for glasses with windshield wipers!

Anyone who wears glasses and once came into a warm room out of the cold knows what I`m talking about... ;)

Works the same going from the warm room to cold outdoors.

I have progressive tri-focals. The first zone is clear glass and is to eliminate me having to take my glasses off for close work. I have perfect vision up to about 18". My congenitally elongated cornea means I have always been myopic, and after hitting and passing 50, I now have problems with middle distance. At 650$ a pop, I would totally be interested in looking into these.

Seems like a very expensive pair of Adspecs. A similar principal of variable lenses to be able to be used in poor populations of Africa.

That's the first I've heard of those. Very simple and neat design. Never thought the day would come when glasses were powered with oil.

If you don't mind me asking, how much are you spending on a pair of glasses now?

Right now about $350.

I personally don't wear glasses. If I did I'm not so sure that I would pay that much money relying on what the internet/tv says. I would much rather have known someone who has really used them before I would consider even buying them. I think you can only get reading glasses at Walmart and places like that.

There are people out there wearing them. They were created locally in my area.

I had the reverse problem. People would turn the AC up in the unit, jump out of the truck on a summer day, and couldn't see anything!
