Adlens glasses have lenses that can be adjusted as your eyes change

I’ve worn glasses since I was in third grade. I don’t know what the definition of legally blind is, but without my glasses, I have a feeling I’d fall into that group. If I’m awake, I’m wearing my glasses. Now that I’m older and wiser, I have progressive lenses that allow me to read and see things close up. Every year I go to my optometrist for an exam to see if I need to change my prescription. When I was younger, my eyes changed quite a bit and my strong prescription translated into expensive lenses. Luckily my eyes are pretty stable now, but I used to wish for a pair of glasses that could be adjusted like a camera or pair of binoculars. Adlens glasses have that ability! The glasses feature a dial on each temple that instantly adjusts each lens for near, intermediate and distance vision. Each lens has two wave-shaped plates which slide across one another as you turn the dials to change the power of the lens from -6 to +3 diopter. The Adlens glasses are available in a variety of frame colors and are priced very reasonably at $29.99. The only caveat is that they won’t work if you have an astigmatism. Adlens also offer sunglasses and glasses for digital eye strain. For more info visit adlens.com

    I don’t even technically need glasses but I almost want a pair of these. Being able to see things really far away and enhancing my near vision could come in handy! But I’m not sure it’d be worth the hassle of having to wear glasses when I don’t really need them.

    Hy. Great Review and you are really very concerned about the health of the eye, I have one question, whether the above price applies to lens photocromic?

      They do not offer those types of lenses. You might want to send them an email and ask if they ever plan to include that feature in the future.
