  • Patent number: 11428955
    Abstract: Eyewear dynamically adjusts viewing effects to match the wearer, the object or scene being viewed (luminance, color prominence, glare, visual blur/noise), other conditions: sensory parameters (gaze direction, focal length, eye gestures, other eye activity, other senses, wearer inputs), medical conditions, wearer location, environmental parameters, wearer activity, use by the wearer, the wearer's field of view. The eyewear can adjust visual features presented to the wearer, such as changes in refraction, polarization/shading, color, prismatic angles/functions, 3D displays. Eyewear can be tailored to form factor: glasses, contacts, RID, IOL, facemask/helmet, vehicles, windows, screens, scopes, AR/VR devices, nerve sensors, external devices. Eyewear can adjust refraction, polarization/shading, color filtering/injection, false coloring, color change; prismatic angles/functions.
