Last night I saw a local commercial for some 'smart' variable focus reading glasses. These are supposed to work like the autofocus on a camera, sensing your eye's needs and adjusting according to what you are looking at. The particular brand being advertised was One Power Reader, but there are others.
Of course I never buy anything from an add or commercial, but I was intrigued so decided to research it further. Having recently undergone cataract surgery, I now need different glasses for looking at just about anything close up. It drives me crazy. I never seem to have the right glasses with me for what I need to see. Having a single pair that automatically changes focus according to what I am looking at would be a godsend. But the scepticism in me urges caution. In any case, I think they want $60 for these. That's a lot for reading glasses.
I searched around some review sites. About half say they are a scam. The other half praise them to high heaven. I'm not sure if either half is being paid for reviews so of course I have come to Geekzone, the font of all knowledge, for a definitive answer. I have big doubts about these, but I would gladly pay $60 for something that actually works. What do you guys think about this? Any personal experiences?
