TruFocals Adjustable Lens Glasses

I was just tipped off by my father of a clever invention and product,  a pair of adjustable focus glasses called TruFocals.  You can adjust them from your normal prescription to a reading glass with the slide of a lever (located above the bridge).

“Seeing clearly everywhere, from up close to infinity, is finally possible. Wearing TruFocals, with just a simple finger motion on a small slider on the bridge, you can actually go from reading a newspaper to viewing a TV set to scanning a distant vista and your vision is crisp and clear every inch of the way. That’s a major improvement over multifocal glasses that are in focus only at certain fixed distances so your vision between those zones is blurred.

And, with TruFocals, the whole lens is in focus so your entire field of view is sharp, not just a portion as with bifocals or progressive glasses. That means—

  • no distortion, lines or blurriness anywhere in your field of vision. Vision is as good on the edges as it is in the center.
  • being able to read an entire newspaper page without having to fold it or bob your head up and down to find the right part of the lenses. With TruFocals, your whole lens is the right part.
  • greater safety on stairs and curbs where an out-of-focus step can lead to a bad misstep.

You can adjust TruFocals to any distance you want. Whenever you want. Instantly. With TruFocals, you’re in charge.”

The only negative I can tell is that they look great on some people and not-so great on others (a bit Harry Potter looking).

    Boy, what a great invention!

    Does the true focal also reduce glare – similar to the polor lense?

    Thank you.

    This look’s to be a great boon for old guy’s like me, 70 yrs old. but so far I have not found the price for them. just because I’m and old codger does not mean I’m a rich one. I just would like to know how much for a them.

    I bought a pair of Superfocus a year ago, and had a recurrent problem with the adjustment cursor mechanism. I had my glasses changed twice, so now it’s the 3rd time that it happens, and Superfocus made it clear that they would not fix the problem for free any more. I think it’s a flaw in the design, the mechanism is very crude, and wears off very fast, making the lenses adjustment uneven, which is very uncomfortable and create major headaches.
    Well, I am tired of calling them, having to wait for weeks to get a replacement. I took a plan that will allow me to get a replacement for $350, but I don’t think it’s worth the money, because the problem is a structural one, fundamental flaw in the mechanism design . So, I decided to move on. I lost $800, and will try the last progressive technology . I was very enthusiastic about the technology, but now, I would not invest in this company. They are doomed.
