e-Vision is utilizing this technology in smart glasses, electronic contact lenses (ECL), and in the near future, it is slated for use in IOLs. Worldwide it is estimated that 2.1 billion people need vision correction and those being corrected spend over $55 billion dollars per year. Presently for reading glasses, people rely on bifocals or progressive lenses that blend the areas of focus. Typically, the user looks down for their reading distance and looks up for far distances. Bifocals have two lens powers–the top half of the lens for distance and the bottom half of the lens for reading with a visible (fashion faux pas) bifocal line that cuts across the center of the lens. Progressive lenses can change the focus range gradually as one gazes down from distance vision on the top of the lens down to intermediate and reading vision at the bottom. Although progressive lenses offer multiple vision fields, they take time getting used to and not everyone can adapt to them (especially with contact lenses and IOLs) and they alter peripheral vision slightly. Today e-Vision is exhibiting a working prototype of its dynamic tunable lens technology demonstrating the ability of the e-Vision lens to shift/adjust to any focus from distance to reading and anywhere in between. In the case of the electronic contact lens/IOLs, the entire field of view of the e-Vision lens will change to the focus desired by the wearer–no more will you be looking down and up searching for a specific zone of focus on a lens.
