Voy Tunable Eye Glasses [adjustable focus]

These look interesting, for those of us with lousy eyesight.

Cheap too, $79 (59), Overpriced opticians will hate these
One pair to rule them all.

THE days of swapping between multiple pairs of glasses could soon be over.

A company has unveiled "adjustable" specs that the wearer can tune on the fly based on what they're using them for.

With the twist of a dial, users can adjust the focus to swap between reading, driving, screen use and more, The Times reports.

US firm Voy reckons the tech, which it calls "nano-precision glasses", will spell the end of requiring several pairs of specs for different activities.

Costing $79 (59) a pop, the Voy Tunable Glasses can adjust the focus level anywhere between -5D to +2D.

"Turn the wheel away from the nose to for a more negative power, or turn the wheel towards the nose for a more positive power until you can see clearly," Voy writes on its website.
Quote:
Voy glasses started life on crowd-funding site Kickstarter in early 2020 and began shipping late last year.
Quote:
The company is now developing a $200 (148) pair of tuneable sunglasses that work in a similar way.
Quote:
The specs are on display at the CES 2021 tech showcase in Las Vegas, which kicks off Monday, January 11. [EDIT: Today]

I'm not gonna get a pair just yet, I'll wait till they appear on Amazon. [I limit the number of on-line outlets I use/trust]
EDIT: They are not on amazon.co.uk at the moment, but they are available for purchase on their Canadian homesite.
EDIT: The Sun says is US company, I was going by FireFox Addon FlagFox showing Canadian flag for homesite URL.
