    Such a great idea! Self-adjustable eyeglasses. Developed by Dr. Joshua Silver, of the center for vision in the developing world.

    Joshua Silver’s silicon injected eyeglasses for the poor. These eye glasses can be adjusted to the need of the wearer without testing or an optician to grind the prescription. They are made of strong plastic, with silicone liquid in the lenses, similar to wearing double paned windows with a gel in between. The lens has a syringe attached which the wearer uses to adjust the amount of light-bending silicon until they can see clearly.
