Dear mr. Heiting. I would really like to read your book. But I do have an urgent question: is there a possiblity to stop a patient with acute glaucoma from getting blind? His vision is only 5%. Is there a possiblity out there in the States or any other country?

hi
I read your article on Photochromics. My question is, that within any given temperature, will the new Signature lens be as dark as the Xtractive lens? Which one will be darker under a hat visor? How noticeable is the indoor tint on the xtractive in real life with an AR coating?
I am trying to decide on what lens to get in a new pair of glasses. thanks

Google says they'll make Google Glass available for prescription wearers later this year. It will be interesting to see whether multifocal wearers will be able to adapt to them, but I'm willing to try out the single-vision version. Sounds pretty cool!

Dr Haiting, I;'ve read your article "Multifocal contact lenses". I did not find which brands provide soft multifocal contact lenses including astigmatism correction. Can you help me? Thanks in advance

Hello Dr. Heiting,

Good post! I've been a wearer of high refractive glass lenses for years. Much tougher against scratches compared to plastic and easy to make them spotless. One thing that has frustrated me to no end is that after a while AR coating seems to smudge as it "peels" off. Is recoating possible? Is there a provider that can do a better job? I was considering ordering my next pair without AR until I read your post.

Thank you.

Parag,  get your optometrist to fit her with some daily contact lenses. If she only uses them for swimming and disposes of them correctly, she shouldn't have a problem. Regards
