Trufocals reports: [edited]

Seeing clearly everywhere, from up close to infinity, is finally possible.

With just a simple finger motion on a small slider on the bridge, you can go from reading a newspaper to viewing a TV set to scanning a distant vista. That’s a major improvement over multifocal glasses that are in focus only at certain fixed distances so your vision between those zones is blurred.

And, with TruFocals, the whole lens is in focus so your entire field of view is sharp, not just a portion as with bifocals or progressive glasses. That means:

- no distortion, lines or blurriness anywhere in your field of vision. Vision is as good on the edges as it is in the centre.

- being able to read an entire newspaper page without having to fold it or bob your head up and down to find the right part of the lenses.

- greater safety on stairs and curbs where an out-of-focus step can lead to a bad misstep.

Watch our informational video and learn more about how TruFocals can change your view of the world forever.

Ingeniouos! These look intuitive and useful...

...but I like my lined-bifocals for driving. I can look out the windshield through the upper portion, and when I glance down at the instrument panel, I can see it clearly through the lower portion. The idea of having to reach up and touch my glasses while driving, just to be able to switch back and forth between looking at the street and looking at the instrument panel, seems overly cumbersome.

Plus -- they look pretty unstylish. The "schoolboy" look went out about 15 years ago...

so far, i have avoided wearing glasses, but as the inevitable approaches, i do like the idea of lenses that let me see things as clearly as possible...

re. looks, i quite like the 'steampunk' shape... and i'm guessing the lenses need to be circular to work properly...
