New glasses bring tears to the eyes


Masunaga Optical Manufacturing Co has come up with a high-tech solution for obsessive video-gamers and bookworms whose eyes dry out from lack of blinking. The company said Tuesday that its “Wink Glasses” — retailing for 40,000 yen — were an answer to the ocular dehydration caused for instance by prolonged computer use.


When a sensor detects that the wearer has not blinked for more than five seconds, the glasses “fog up” by gradually making a liquid crystal display over one eye turn opaque. A simple blink clears the lens again.
