Might I note that there appears to be a typo in your article regarding anti-reflective coatings. Early in the article you use the term index of refraction when it appears to me that what you are discussing is the index of "reflection." The index of refraction does not, in general, have any real  effect on the reflective properties of the glass. It simply measures the angle at which light is bent when it passes through a lens.

Hi Dr Heiting. Im Ghena and im 31. Im having blurred vision from afar. I cant see people's faces anymore and sometimes its really embarassing i didnt recognized some of my friends from afar. I cant read words from afar too. I dont want to wear glasses or contact lenses. Is there any other way that i could do or drink a medicine or vitamins for this? Thank you.

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!

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
