In sub-Saharan Africa, there is only one optometrist for every 1 million people, which makes it virtually impossible to provide patients with the eye care they need; however, the Eyejusters Adjustable Readers offer an incredible solution.

The Eyejusters Adjustable Readers are a type of reading eyeglasses developed by a company based in Oxford. The glasses, which cost about $40 each, apply the brand's special 'SlideLens' technology, which allows wearers to adjust the level of focus on each pair of glasses. Because users can change the lens prescription on their own, the need for an optometrist is decreased, making these glasses an innovative solution to meet the vision demands of developing countries. Further, as FashioningTech points out, since the focus is alterable, one pair of glasses could be shared among family members.
