I just got back from a long-overdue visit to the local vision-correction emporium, where I learned that for all these years, I’ve been fumbling through life only able to see 480 lines of resolution through my contact lenses. But now there are HD contact lenses. Bausch & Lomb’s PureVision2 HD lenses have been out for some time now, and I’m just learning about this upgrade to reality now.
The company claims that the lenses have “High Definition‚Ñ¢ Optics, designed to help reduce spherical aberration.” That may be so, but they don’t increase the number of pixels that your eyes can see. It’s almost as if “HD” has just become a meaningless buzzword used to sell things that people look at.
