20/20 vision for 1 billion by the year 2020

Atomic physicist Joshua Silver invented liquid-filled optical lenses to produce low-cost, adjustable glasses, giving sight to millions without access to an optometrist.

More than 30,000 of his lenses have been distributed in 15 countries, and a new model will scale that number up to millions.
