DeepOptics originally wanted to make goggles for 3D television. But when the founders realized that more people have aging eyes than 3D TVs, they decided to use their vision tech to help people over 45 see both close and far, outside and in. Their first product, named for the latitude of DeepOptics’ hometown of Tel Aviv, has tinted liquid-crystal lenses that realign into magnifying “readers” when the wearer swipes the temple with a finger. (A companion phone app allows users to set a specific reading magnification level.) A version with transparent lenses, switching between a distance Rx and close-up magnification, is planned.
