“Dave’s considerable experience will be instrumental in ensuring that variable focus lenses achieve their potential in VR, AR and in tackling presbyopia through the development of electronic focus glasses. We are very glad to have him join us as we shape the revolution of sight” said John Kennedy, CEO Adlens.
Adlens has spent 15 years exploring the science of vision to bring about a revolution in sight. It is pioneering the development of lenses that will have a profound impact on the future of AR, VR and eyewear. In VR it is developing SEE™ technology (Stimulated Eye Engagement) that allows the human eye to focus on virtual content in a natural way to make virtual worlds feel genuinely three dimensional, more realistic and comfortable. In augmented reality, it is developing DFI™ technology (Dynamic Focal Integration) to take AR beyond smart glasses and make it possible to place real and virtual objects together accurately and believably in the real world. Adlens is also developing adaptive focus lenses to better address presbyopia, the natural deterioration in near vision that we all experience as we age.
