In-built Telescope within Contact Lens to Increase Vision Three-fold

- The contact lenses sport 1.55mm-thick lenses and are equipped with tiny mirrors and filters that function the same way as binoculars.
To cut it short
It is noted that AMD is the biggest cause of sight loss amongst people all over the world. To ease the problem of millions, Dr. Tremblay, a designer from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, has developed a smart lens that works in conjunction with glasses and is activated by winking. What strikes out is the ability to switch between magnified and regular vision making it user friendly. However, the only dispute is comfort, as the lenses hamper the quantity of oxygen reaching the eye. But just like all good things find a way out of dismay, we hope this one is resolved too!
