Visionary invention
« on: Jan 12, 2021, 02:27:36 PM »
At last! Voy have invented tunable spectacle lenses..A small tuning wheel allows the lenses to distort from long-vision to short or vice-versa..Brilliant development and less than £60 a pair!

Interesting, there have been several attempts at tunable specs which didn't work so I hope Voy have succeeded.

I'm not a gambler but I'd have a 60 quid punt on a pair of them.

Hopefully they won't look like this though...   ;D

Looks interesting, and for folk with a straightforward prescription should work. I have very different prescriptions for my two eyes, so probably not for me, but thatís life
