Coming soon, smart contact lenses to give you superhuman vision!

Washington, Jan. 09 : A latest eyewear system made with a combination of glasses and contact lenses could reportedly allow the wearer to have superhuman vision by focusing on finer details of objects that are otherwise not visible to natural eye.


The iOptik lenses, developed by Innovega, has two parts, including contact lenses, which give the wearer enhanced focusing abilities, beyond normal eye's capacity.

The second part of the system includes glasses, which include flat-panels or micro-projectors that can display apps and media and create a Google Glass-like experience, while wearing them on the contact lenses would further enhance the vision, Mashable reports.

iOptik spokesperson said that a lot of companies are trying to blend contacts and glasses tech into one device but it has limitations of creating a tiny field of view.

The spokesperson further explained that Google Glass is the equivalent of having a smartphone about 24 inches in front of the eyes, while the iOptik system is six times the resolution and 20 times the area, equivalent to looking at a big TV projection.

The company hopes the tech would eventually replace the smartphone, the report added.
