I admit, I wear the “cheeters” for eyeglasses. The +2.50 is pretty close to what I need to survive. They are only $10 vs. $308.79 cash outta pocket, then sat upon.
I understand an 8-base polarized in a prescription is available for around $600, last I checked.
So what is the hold up on an affordable pair? The cheapie reader market has exploded in the last few years. Now chicks can have a pair for each day in the week.
The polarization process has some distortion through application, as it is a film, I understand this as well, but c’mon, it’s like 2000 or some shit.
I heard that they apply that “camo” to surfaces by dipping into a pool of colors that were somhow imissible (sp, and is that the right word?) and the pattern adheres to the surface. Maybe like electroplating, I don’t know, a buddy of mine toured Matthews bow shop once.
Since plastic sucks when it comes to applying a charge to attract a dissolved solid,(using a laser-printer as a model) I would think the lens would have to be submersed in the polarization au jus, and hit with a laser, very quickly across the surface in parallel lines. Result is distortion-free polarization without affecting the magnification of the lens.
WTF? I’ve solved it, why don’t you go make it happen.
