Vision-correcting display makes reading glasses so yesterday

What if computer screens had glasses instead of the people staring at the monitors? That concept is not too far afield from technology being developed by University of California, Berkeley, computer and vision scientists. The researchers are developing computer algorithms to compensate for an individual’s visual impairment, and creating vision-correcting displays that enable users to see text and images clearly without wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. The technology could potentially help hundreds of millions of people who currently need corrective lenses to use their smartphones, tablets and computers.
