Adaptive Eyeglasses : An interview with Josh Silver

Audio interview with Josh SilverIn this interview, Professor Joshua Silver from the University of Oxford presents one of the technologies developed by the Center for Vision in the Developing World: adaptive eyeglasses. These glasses are fluid-filled corrective lenses, adjustable by the wearer who learns the process of self-refraction, e.g., determining the level of correction required. Professor Silver also explains why this product is a low cost technology and why the shape of the glasses matters. He finally shows how this innovation impacts on the life of people in developing countries.

    God bless you and your research team for this innovation to help developing countries with vision problems. I was personally touched when your studies took you to my motherland Ghana. I wish to inquire whether this research may benefit diabetics, like me who periodically experience vision changes. I shall be most grateful to hear your response. I also think this may also boost the debate in the healthcare reform currently being discussed. Again, thank you immensely.

    Dear Professor Silver,
    I accidentdentally watched a TV documentary programme showing your genius invention combined with a solution for the poor people in developing countries. This really catched my attention.
    Having myself been involved at The Round Table Movement, which is almost worldwide and having as one of its objectives, to help the needy, I have been wondering whether you have any connection to expand the move that you have started to Mauritius Island.
    I am myself a Professional Accountant (FCCA from UK), MBA from the University of Birmingham) with much experience and would be keen to extend your movement to Mauritius as I think that there are people who woulb be more than happy with your solutions.
    May I request you to please get back to me on this issue.
    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
    Thanks & best regards
    Cader Jaunbocus
