Automatically refocusing reading glasses | Nitish Padmanaban | TEDxBeaconStreet

As people age, they gradually lose the ability to refocus their eyes to near distances. This condition, known as presbyopia, affects roughly 2 billion people worldwide today. Using focus-tunable lenses and eye tracking, learn how we could build "autofocal" eyeglasses that refocus for you in the near future. Nitish Padmanaban is a fifth year PhD candidate at Stanford EE, supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. He’s advised by Prof. Gordon Wetzstein as part of the Stanford Computational Imaging Lab. His research is focused on using optical and computational techniques for improving visual perception, including building and evaluating displays to alleviate the vergence–accommodation conflict (VAC) and addressing presbyopia in both real and virtual settings. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
