Good Morning Doctors--
Yesterday while waiting for my car to be serviced at my local car repair garage, there was a business & finance TV show going on in the background. I wasn't really paying much attention to the TV program, until a special feature about this year's Consumer Electronics 2011 Show in Las Vegas caught my ear.
What caught my attention was a new type of eyeglasses that somehow correct the prescription of progressive prescription glasses
, depending on task at hand.
The reason for my interest and surprise is that I always have vision trouble switching from one type of task to another -- for example, reading, attending theater, driving a car, watcing television, doing intricate up-close hobby work, going up and down stairs, playing the piano, etc. Up to now I have despaired of ever finding an optical solution that would have "universal" application to all tasks. In recent years my eyesight has changed to the point where progressive lenses
are no longer appropriate. I nevertheless continue to use them because I do not like the vision "line" that results from bi-focals. Perhaps this newly-announced Consumer Electronics product or type of optical might be the perfect solution for me?!
I did not catch all that was being said about this new optical/electronic product, because there was too much ambient noise at the garage. But it appeared that the prescription adjustment was taking place automatically(?) Could that really be possible?! Unfortunately, I did not either catch the name of this new product or its maker.
As soon as I got home I tried to find information on this product or topic on the Internet through Google searches, but was not successful. So therefor I am turning to you for help.
Can you please help me find out more about this eyewear innovation, and/or sources where I might investigate this eyecare option for myself?
