Adaptive Eyeglasses : An interview with Josh Silver

Audio interview with Josh Silver [1]In 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.
