How do I look in my new glasses?
Video technology can be used to help pick new frames
Eyeglass wearers who can’t see things close up without glasses are often reliant on their family and friends for help in choosing new frames. Without their customary visual correction, they can’t see themselves well in the mirror, a factor that doesn’t much contribute to the assurance they feel when making their choice. Modern digital technology is now coming to the rescue. Customers try several models of frames on, one after the other. They are recorded by a camera that saves the pictures and then displays them on a screen. The customers can then, with their existing glasses, see how they look with the different models. This gives them more certainty and boosts confidence. Customers are enthusiastic about the new procedure.An on-screen comparison can also be helpful from a cosmetic viewpoint as well. Fashion conscious women can use it to help them decide what models looks good on them and how well the color of the frames goes with their color type.Picture Material: KGSe.V. in Germany
