New Innovations In Vision Technology That Are Coming Soon

Due to the many advances in computing technology, and the doubling of computing power every 2 years or so, there have been major advances in other sciences as well. Fields like biotechnology, physics, and material sciences have been reaching new levels of innovation because computers are enabling researchers to run multiple simulations per second without actually testing materials until a viable match has been found. In the vision correction technology field there have been new contact lens materials developed and even contact video camera lenses that are coming soon.

There Are Adjustable Contact Lenses That May Be Available

These adjustable lenses are going to be electronic and be able to be adjusted from near vision, far vision and anything in between. The devices are using technology that is already in use in other optical lenses used in cameras and other optical devices like augmented reality displays.

The materials in the lens are called electro-active, in other words they change their structure depending on the amount of electrical current that is run through them. From the outside they look and feel exactly like regular contact lenses. The wearer will also be able to set pre-chosen focus ranges to quickly view items at common distances, like reading, driving, computer screens or the TV. Otherwise, the lenses are infinitely adjustable as well manually. These are due on the market in late 2016.

LASIK To Improve Reading Vision

Monovision has been developed to help those that need reading vision correction by correcting one eye to be able to focus up close and the other eye, usually the dominant one, to focus at longer distances. While this technique may sound a little far-fetched, the human brain seems to adapt rapidly and smoothly to the change without problems.

This method works well with a large number of people but isn’t for everyone. Some athletes, such as golfers, baseball players, or others that need perfect long distance vision in both eyes to accurately hit a ball, or watch an already hit ball, won’t be good candidates for this type of correction.

Samsung Has Video Camera Contact Lenses

Just like you may have seen in some science fiction movies there are now contact lenses that take videos. The patent has already been granted on the invention and it appears to work two ways. It can take video and wirelessly send it to any smartphone device through a built-in antenna.

Plus, it can show video to the user in an augmented reality experience just like the wearable glasses made by Google. The lenses are managed by the user with blinks, but ideas are already being floated about having the lenses be smartphone connected and controlled as well.

Not to be outdone, Google has also been granted several patents on a similar technology that will also read blood sugar levels in real time for diabetics. There are quite a number of different medical conditions that can be read from the tear content in people’s eyes.

There are many new inventions coming on a daily and weekly basis, so many that it’s hard to keep up with all of the progress. By setting a Google notification you can get daily emails about any subject you desire in order to stay on top of the latest developments.
