Child Vision is launching a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to distribute their innovative, self-adjustable glasses to those who need them most.
The organisation says the campaign has been launched because 100 million children in the developing world sit in classrooms without being able to see the blackboard clearly.
Poor vision has a significant impact on the education, quality of life, and economic potential of young people. Professor Joshua Silver created the first self-adjustable glasses, the Adspecs, an invention that led to his nomination as ‘Inventor of the Year’ in 2011 by the European Patent Office. These glasses are based on a fluid-filled lens technology that the user adjusts until they can see clearly. While Adspecs were designed for adult use, Child Vision glasses use similar technology but the glasses have been developed specifically for young people aged between 12 and 18.
