A type of smart contact lenses was recently approved for use by the U.S Food and Drug Administration. These glasses have the same look and feel as regular glasses, but incorporate the technology that is found in smart phones and other wireless devices. With the glasses, you can virtually touch and manipulate whatever it is that you are viewing on your computer screen. You may also be able to play games that involve interacting with 3-D objects or using your voice.
These glasses will allow you to look through windows that are simply not possible with conventional contact lenses. The glasses will also allow you to look through overhead doors and into the distance. There are many other applications for these smart electronic devices. Just as soon as these are released, many more exciting possibilities will come to the fore. The applications that are developed along with smart contact lenses will bring virtual reality to an entirely new level.
You may be able to take your smart phone, laptop or other device that you typically use to view the internet and use it to view videos. This would be great for watching movies or actually recording some of your own video footage. Imagine being able to make full use of all of that technology without having to wear eyeglasses. You may even be able to use the videos and photos that you take with your cell phone to upload to your online social media accounts. All of these conveniences would greatly enhance the way that you live your life.
Since your eyes are capable of detecting movement, you will also be able to take advantage of the smart glasses virtual reality experience.

So, you will be able to see just about anything through your smart phone, computer monitor or bookshelf. In addition to bifocal contact lenses, you will also be able to experience virtual reality through glasses that incorporate stereo lenses and image sensors.
Since your eye is capable of detecting subtle changes in lighting, you will also find that it makes reading much easier. Now you will not have to squint in order to see what is on the page. Glasses will be able to change the focus automatically based on the amount of light present. In the future, these changes will become even more sophisticated. Therefore, you will not have to be concerned about reading obscure information anymore.
Finally, you should know that prescription glasses may someday be replaced completely by smart contact lenses. As mentioned previously, some of these glasses will incorporate surround sound and even video within their design. Therefore, if you love to watch your favorite sports team play on television, you will be able to enjoy your favorite sport with the help of prescription eyeglasses that have the same smart technology as well as virtual reality capabilities.
As you can see, there are a lot of advantages when you wear smart glasses.
