Liquid Crystal Contact Lens?

  1. Oct 4, 2004 #1
    Would it be possible that Opticians will be selling to visually impaired people, Contact Lens, made from a material that has a negative index refraction, that theoretically could be altered with a Liquid Crystal "Eye-Drop" solution?

    Basically how far are we from a Liquid Crystal Contact Lens? :biggrin:

    Well I would be amazed?..but I had found some webpages that have LQ Glasses, but not actual Cataracts.

    The original Question related to a paper I had recently read, which filled my mind with some aspects of thinking, relative to the Question?..I will dig out the paper and links, as soon as I have completed some urgent work.
