DailyDirt: Making Four Eyes Better Than Two
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Wearing glasses can be annoying at times — especially when wearing them in inclement weather as they fog up or get wet. But it’s also nice to see clearly. Sure, contact lenses and LASIK (and other eye surgeries) can correct a lot of vision deficiencies, but for some people, wearing glasses is the best solution. Here are just a few other kinds of glasses that could be worth wearing — even for people with 20/20 vision.
- Folks with red-green color blindness might want to check out sunglasses that could help them discern the color red a bit better. EnChroma lenses have a coating that filters light in a way that can accentuate certain colors. [url]
- EmPower eyeglasses use liquid crystals to change the optics of the lenses — creating bifocals on demand. Presbyopia hits just about everyone over 40, but charging eyeglasses could be a bit too annoying for many quadragenarians. [url]
- The Google Glass project might look too dorky for most people to wear, but fashion models can make anything look good. And perhaps Google’s $1,500 glasses could help Derek Zoolander turn left? [url]
