Idea I had

The fact that a lot of these eye glass charities require a prescription before they can help you gave me an idea for an invention I wish I had the skills to build. It's a computerized visor type thing you put over your eyes, and then you press a button and it does this computerized automated eye exam, asking you to read the lines and so on, then adjusts its display until you can see properly. When that's done, it emails you a copy of your prescription, you print it out, and take it in to a store or charity, and they can use that to get you glasses. There would be places where you could rent the use of one of these things for like $10 or something, and maybe even some of the charities could buy one to better help people.

Hell, if you had the money and were geeky enough, you could buy a pair to use as glasses. Maybe make it look like Geordi's visor. And the plus side to one of those as glasses would be that if your prescription changes, just have it perform another eye exam on you so it knows what display options you need. You'd never have to buy another pair of glasses ever again!

Oh, and maybe options for legally blind people, that would magnify specific areas or the whole display if needed. And for color-blind people, the computer could identify colors and tell you when a light was green or whatever. Could make it so that color-blind people could drive with almost as much ease as normally sighted people do. Oooh! And if you needed it to, maybe it could read text for you. Though that might be tricky to work out how to do...
