Essilor Invested Company, DeepOptics, Debuts First-Ever Adaptive Focus Sunglasses
DeepOptics, an Israeli start-up and developer of innovative electronic lenses technology, has launched 32°N, the first and only adaptive focus sunglasses. 32°N sunglasses enable a number of different reading prescriptions with a single pair of glasses. Together with Samsung, Essilor is an investor in the company, and has been involved in the conception of 32°N from an engineering and design perspective.
32°N is able to dynamically correct for reading while serving as functional sunglasses. The glasses mimic natural human vision, allowing users to seamlessly switch between “reading mode” for near vision and “scenic mode” for far distances. Reading mode offers 2 Diopters addition, on the bottom of the lens but also at the center or at the top. A boost of 4 Diopters is also provided when needed. 32°N addresses the needs of emmetropic people experiencing presbyopia.
To further leverage this product and its potential globally, a Kickstarter campaign has been launched from June 15, 2021 onwards.
