Adaptive optical elements, including lenses, prisms, occluders, and color filters, may create new opportunities for correction of presbyopia, treatment of amblyopia, strabismus, and color vision. These adaptive optical elements can be equipped with compact electronic drivers and controllers to form various kinds of smart eyewear for more efficient treatment. In addition, retinal scanning display eyewear could be an effective visual aid for AMD subjects. In this talk, we will discuss these new devices and explore potential collaborations.
