    An Idea

    What if our glasses could do image processing? Inspired by NEI's Audacious Goals Initiative we began developing this idea. Glasses allow for a specific type of trasformation (refraction) of light. In principle, a more general class of transformations to manipulate visuospatial elements might provide an enhanced view for individuals with a broad range of visual deficits.
