Outline

Bifocal lenses generally cause more uncomfortable vision such as distortion and blurring, since the range through which your sight moves becomes limited as your eyes age and the lens power required to see a near object increases. In general, from age 50 onward, people recognize that the range through which they can freely move their sight becomes more limited, but think that it is unavoidable to have to use bifocal lenses and so adjust their eyes accordingly. Since this new artificial intelligence design program has been developed, which adjusts the vision individually, depending on the personal condition of the eyes and the lens power information, uncomfortable vision is drastically reduced for any lens power. This "AI" made by cyclone design is a bifocal lens that allows you to move your sight freely, overcoming the existing issues.
