Inspired by: My eye sight is incredibly terror. Likewise, I recently realized that approximately 2 billion people don't have access to vision corrective devices. After analyzing the market, I discovered that the market is saturated with over priced and not standardized vision corrective devices. This, then, hit me that what if we can build contact lenses that can be designed for everyone to wear, regardless of varying differences in power, and that is mass manufacturable. I then was inspired by the design of the eye to design new contact lenses that can mimic this function. If this idea can become a product, it could potentially alleviate many from poverty and illiteracy.
