Adjustable focus eyeglasses are prescription eyeglasses with an adjustable focal length. They compensate for refractive errors (such as presbyopia) by providing variable focusing, allowing users to adjust them for desired distance or prescription, or both.
Current Bifocals and progressive lenses are static, in that the user has to change their eye position to look through the portion of the lens with the focal power corresponding to the distance of the object. This usually means looking through the top of the lens for distant objects and down through the bottom of the lens for near objects. Adjustable focus eyeglasses have one focal length, but it is variable without having to change where one is looking.
Possible uses for such glasses are to provide cheap glasses for 3rd...

The Church was build in the 1700s as part of a commission to build 50 new churches in London to accommodate the new settlements. Today, immigrants and young people are moving to this area in order to begin a new chapter in their own lives. As we walked into Spitalfields Market I saw the contrast of a hipster market selling clothes, jewelry, and canvas bags.

Infections, even blindness, may result from non-prescription contact lenses, the FDA warns. Laura Butler was vacationing in Virginia Beach, Va., when, on a whim, the brown-eyed mom decided to buy a pair of blue contact lenses for R230 from a novelty shop. Driving home to West Virginia the next day, she felt a searing pain in her left eye.

I'm a student, and my crappy student health plan doesn't cover vision. The problem is I need, in no particular order, new lenses for one pair of glasses, another pair, and a pair of prescription sunglasses. My criteria may, taken all together, be absurd, but I'm looking for: stylish frames, variety, and affordability. Someone told me about a guy named Louis Gaspari who's an optician in Lower Manhattan who sells glasses for something like $40, provided you pay in cash. I don't know if this...
