Glasses that Adapt to People
Presbyopia (prez-bē-ō-pē-a), the gradual, age-related, irreversible reduction in near vision, is a natural part of aging that reduces our ability to focus well on nearby objects. Switching between glasses and reading glasses can become frustrating. Until now, there were only two common options available: progressive lenses (multifocal) and bifocals, which each have their limitations.

Liquid Crystal Lenses
DEEPOPTICS proprietary technology dynamically corrects vision impairment using pixelated liquid crystal (LC) lenses. The lenses perform like the human eye, allowing the wearer to see what they want when they want.
DEEPOPTICS technology adds almost no extra weight or bulk to the design of natural looking glasses.
THE FIRST (AND ONLY)
The 32°N sunglasses are the first product on Deep Optics' roadmap, launched through Kickstarter in 2021. The 32°N sunglasses can serve as functional sunglasses and dynamically correct reading.
It mimics the natural vision of the human eye, allowing the user to seamlessly switch between the reading mode for near vision and the scenic mode for far vision.
