Still In Its Prototype Stages, the Advanced Display Technology Is Expected To Eliminate the Need of Prescription Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses.


A group of scientists and researchers from the University of California, MIT, and Microsoft joined hands to develop what has been hailed as the biggest technological breakthrough last month. The team has announced the development of a new display technology that will correct vision problems for people who wear prescription eyeglasses. As one of the major online eyeglasses and sunglasses vendors, Marvel Optics has shared experts view on how this technology will affect eyeglasses market and people who are used to prescription eyeglasses.

While the technology is still in its prototype phase, Marvel Optics expert expressed excitement and optimistic opinion. Explaining how the company supports such developments, the spokesperson for Marvel Optics said, “Marvel Optics is a company dedicated to eye health and better vision. We want people to see better and that is the whole point of offering high quality online glasses for low rates. Contrary to what people believe, we support vision correcting technology. While we believe that it will bring convenience and comfort to people with a vision problem, we do not think that any technology will completely eliminate the need of prescription eyeglasses any time soon.”

Explaining how the technology works, the expert stated that the technology is based on the concept of anticipating the way eyes naturally distort the image displayed on the screen. The newly developed display utilizes several images altering algorithm based on the users’ eyeglasses prescription. A light filter set in front of the display feeds light through a tiny hole. The light from each individual pixel is then altered through the algorithm. The rays of light that ultimately reach the retina are altered in a manner that a sharp image if recreated at the retina. As a result, the user can see sharp and clear image without the need of eyeglasses.

According to the Marvel Optics expert, this isn’t the first time researchers have tried to develop vision-enhancing display. “While the innovation is commendable, it is an extension of several research conducted by other scientists. However, Professor Brian A. Barsky, the lead researcher and developer of the project claims that the results have never been this sharp and crisp. This is largely because of the way the screen allows a Light Field Display that allows it to control individual light rays and the way they radiate from the display. The result is a sharper image without any comprise on the contrast,” the spokesperson added.

The team is still working on the display in order to maximize its capabilities. According to the paper authored by Professor Brian, the display can be enhanced to help users suffering from serious vision issues that cannot be corrected through prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses. However, more research is required in this regard.

Marvel Optics’ expert also highlighted some of the reasons this display technology will not be able to completely replace eyeglasses. He talked about the recent surge in the eyeglasses market throughout the world, specifically, in North America. “Eyeglasses have become a fashion accessory now days. Even contact lenses haven’t managed to surpass their sales over the year. People are so used to wearing their specs that they feel more comfortable while wearing them,” he said.

In the end, he added that regardless of when the new display technology hits the market the prescription eyewear sector is only expected to expand over the next few years.
