DESCRIPTION: Adaptive focus sunglasses designed for presbyopes, 32°N sunglasses from Israel-based DeepOptics enable wearers to select several different reading magnification powers with a single pair of glasses.
• Dynamically corrects for reading while serving as functional sunglasses. Mimics natural human vision. Allows users to seamlessly switch between “reading mode” for near vision and “scenic mode” for far distances with a swipe, eliminates the need to switch between sunglasses and reading glasses while overcoming limitations of progressive lenses and bifocals.
• Pixelated liquid crystal (LC) layers are split into tiny pixels, capable of rotation at every point of the panel. When the user swipes, they activate the tiny processor embedded in the glasses’ temple. The processor calculates user’s personal data and sends data to form the desired lens prescription. Millions of tiny pixels inside the lens change their electrical state according to the new data to form the lens and bring the close object into focus. Completely silent, and without any extra weight or moving parts, DeepOptics’ LC lens enables an unlimited number of dynamic, high-quality lenses that can be changed at any moment.
• Wearer’s initial reading magnification power is determined through a simple set-up process using special phone app. Distance between centers of active lenses can be controlled and changed according to the wearer’s inter-pupilary-distance (IPD). The IPD can be modified for different viewing conditions.
• 32°N magnification ranges from 0-2 diopters. Wearers can define a special mode that goes up to +5D (in a limited part of the active lens) that operates like a magnifying glass.
• When fully charged, 32°N lasts for a full day.
• Available in four colors.
