Abstract
More than 100 million people in the United States of America alone suffer from age-related presbyopia caused by a loss of focal accommodation of the eye crystalline lens as the lens stiffens with age. The resulting accommodative error or lag produces blurred images of objects placed at different distances. Conventional fixed uniform or graded power eyeglasses cannot provide accommodation thus resulting in significant visual impairment. In this paper we will discuss the implementation of lightweight auto-focusing eyeglasses that augment the accommodative range thus partially or fully restoring normal vision function. The paper discusses some aspects of the construction of tunable power eyepieces and the implementation of accommodation correction algorithms.
