A single pair of adjustable glasses are set to make life easier for spectacle wearers who need bi-focals.Eyejusters, which look just like ordinary glasses, use discreet adjustable eyeDial to change the lens strength, in a similar way to binoculars or a microscope. There are eyeDials on both the right and left sides.These allow users to adjust focal length, letting them transform into multi-focals that serve all purposes, from reading fine-print, to looking at something that’s far away.All a user has to do is simply twist the dial on the side to adjust clarity every time vision seems blurry. A spokesman for the company said they were made to be the only pair of eyewear anyone will need.The Eyejusters also come with anti-scratch coatings on all lenses, and are available in a variety of styles and colours with metal and acetate build variants.The Eyejusters comprises a static and a moving lens that allow wearers to adjust spectacle strength anywhere from +0.50 to +4.00 D. It means Eyejusters are the most versatile and high-powered non-prescription glasses that can be purchased. The high prescription allows users to undertake extreme close-up work by simply ‘dialling-up’ the strength using the dials hidden inside the glasses frame. Eyejusters contain SlideLens technology, which incorporates two independent lenses that slide across each other, altering the strength of the prescription across the full field of vision, not just a small area of the lens. Due to the adjustable prescription, users need only carry a single pair of glasses with them, rather than multiple pairs of glasses of varying strengths and quality. They were developed in the UK by former Oxford University student David Crosby .He said:” We invented SlideLens after five years of intensive research into eye-wear technology. “We identified a need for lenses that could be individually focused by the wearer, making them suitable for various everyday tasks. “We’ve achieved this with SlideLens, and by implementing a small adjustable dial in each side of the frame that allows the wearer always to have on the right glasses whatever they are doing, as well as the ability to adjust the prescription as their eyesight worsens. “Our research also ascertained that many glasses wearers feel unsure of which strength to purchase in-store and often end up with multiple pairs, some of which are unusable. “Adjustable lenses solve this problem and save time and money, as well as removing unpleasant symptoms that occur when wearing the wrong prescription, such as headaches, eye strain, squinting, tired eyes, blurred vision, dizziness and a lack of balance.”He said the Oxford-based company was inspired by data revealing an increasing number of people are living with a deteriorative eye condition.Over a quarter of the global population set to be affected by 2020.Presbyopia , the age-related deterioration of the elasticity of lens that covers the eye, resulting in an inability to adjust focus between near and far objects – affects most people over the age of 40. An increase in population size, expected to reach 7.5 billion in 2020[ and greater longevity means that more than 2 billion people will be affected within the next three years. A greater reliance on gadgets, and devices with small text putting more strain on the eyes could mean this figure rises even more, with people expected to start seeing symptoms as young as their 30s.Vrosby added:” It is a frightening prospect to imagine a quarter of the world’s population suffering from an eye condition that can result in them spending the rest of their lives hunting for different strength glasses; swapping between spectacles for computer work, reading work, television and craft; and living with the expense and inconvenience of multiple eye tests to ascertain the best prescription. “We wanted to be the first company to help the generations who are living with poor eyesight – due, in part, to technology and longevity – cope with this extreme change in their vision conveniently and inexpensively. “We put years of our time into researching and innovating, and are delighted to have developed a product that can be of such a huge benefit to so many people.”
The Eyejusters costs from £69 GBP / €77 Euros / $92 USD from the Eyejusters.com website
OPS: The Eyejusters will put an end to people needing multiple pairs of glasses.

Ljudi koji nose naočale često misle da su pametniji od drugih, i čini se da su u pravu, kažu znanstvenici.

Stručnjaci sa sveučilišta u Edinburghu objavili su rezultate opsežnog projekta kojemu je cilj bio otkriti koji geni utječu na "opću kognitivnu funkciju", ključni pokazatelj inteligencije.

Jedan od rezultata je i onaj po kojemu ljudi s većom kognitivnom funkcijom češće nose naočale ili kontaktne leće.

Znanstvenici su analizirali 300.486 osoba u dobi od 16 do 102 godine u studiji objavljenoj u znanstvenom časopisu Nature Communications.

Otkrili su kako je s inteligencijom povezano 148 gena.

Inteligentniji ljudi su 30 posto češče nosili naočale ili kontaktne leće ili su genetski predodređeni da ih nose u budućnosti.

No nemojte se veseliti ako ste dalekovidni. Istraživanje je, naime, pokazalo kako se pozitivna veza inteligencije i vida odnosi samo na ljude s miopijom ili kratkovidnošću.

Iako je općenito odnos inteligencije i nošenja naočala pozitivan, ljudi s većom kognitivnom funkcijom zapravo su rjeđe dalekovidni.

Studija je također ukazala na vezu između visoke kognitivne funkcije i zdravstvenih problema, poput kardiovaskularnih bolesti i hipertenzije (visokog krvnog tlaka) te depresije.

Dakle, idući put kad vas netko nazove "ćoravi", imate dokaz onoga u što ste oduvijek vjerovali: Jednostavno nisu tako pametni kao vi, kažu stručnjaci.
