  • Patent number: 11300805
    Abstract: Provided are stereoscopic eyeglasses capable of reducing visual fatigue in binocular stereoscopic display by a simple configuration. In stereoscopic eyeglasses, in order to expand a tolerance of match between vergence and accommodation enabling comfortable stereovision in eyeglasses-using stereoscopic display, wide-focus lenses ranging in focal length are incorporated so as to overlap optical filters in light transmission directions, and accordingly, visual fatigue to be caused by vergence-accommodation conflict during stereoscopic image observation is reduced.

  • Patent number: 11131868
    Abstract: A corrective lens that can improve contrast sensitivity in a dark place, for example, at night is provided. When an axis in the anteroposterior direction passing through the geometric center of a lens is defined as the z-axis and a direction extending to the rear side of the lens is defined as the positive direction of the z-axis, a focal depth extension component represented by Ar3 (where r is the distance from the z-axis and A is a constant) is added to the z-coordinate value of a refractive surface determined based on a prescription power to increase the focal depth. The focal depth that decreases (shallows) in a dark place is increased to facilitate focusing on a target object located in front of or behind the original focal point. This can improve contrast sensitivity in a dark place.
