Future Without Glasses - Special Lecture by the IAS Fellow Prof. Jer Kuszak

24th October 2011, 14:30, E245 (Engineering), Prof. Jer Kuszak (Rush Medical College)

Abstract: Vision is the most important of the five senses in man and its decline with age is a certainty. By refracting or gathering divergent rays of light into a concentrated beam allows us to read a book and watch television at the same time, without even thinking about the process - until that is when you get older and have to swap glasses! The lecture will give a novel interpretation of how lens structure supports its function with aim to produce a fully functional, artificial lens for our future without glasses.
