Very cool, I want a pair! Adjust-them-yourself glasses, made with a thin layer of liquid between two pieces of glass.

The inventor is hoping to outfit a billion of the world's poor by 2020.

____________________ Hi All __ To those of us in developed countries, eye care does not seem too rough. That said I was watching a science program on television, that had a segment on an optician that had developed a mold with interchangeable curved faces. This allowed him to mold various single correction lenses very cheaply, compared to our lenses they are thick and heavy but in very poor areas of the world they are not very expensive. The time from eye check to molded glasses is about one hour.
