Thanks to these Adlens glasses, people in developing countries can benefit from a luxury we take for granted: prescription glasses. Yes, we may complain about how expensive prescription glasses are, but in other parts of the world, such innovations are prohibitively expensive.
Adlens glasses, however, ingeniously inject water into the lenses in order to create adjustable magnification. At the turn of a knob, Adlens glasses are easily adjusted to individual vision needs. Available at Adaptive Eyewear, hopefully we'll see more like-minded concepts in other health areas.
