These glasses cut the time and costs of traditional eye doctor checkup.

Not everyone can afford to go to the doctor's for an eye check-up and then buy expensive prescription eyewear. Created by the technology company Dow Corning and The Center For Vision In The Developing World (CVDW), these glasses are self-adjustable to allow kids to adjust or give themselves a prescription, cutting out the cost of visiting a doctor.

The contraption is formulated and designed by keeping utility, ease of use and cost of manufacture in mind. The glasses look ordinary except that they come attached with a small barrel of silicone liquid on each side that are connected to the fluid filled lens.
