Self-Adjustable Glasses Let Kids Set Own Prescription
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.
