Share Article

The evolution of eyewear is discussed in a new episode.

For hundreds of years, eyewear stayed, for the most part, the same. A single piece of refined glass, held in front of the eye, designed to help the eye see better. From its earliest inception, only the wealthy could afford eyewear, as the creation of this glass proved costly and time consuming. However, as the years passed, advancements in production methods made eyewear more affordable, but improvements to the eye's capability of seeing proved slow. However, recently eye doctors and eyewear manufacturers have found new and exciting ways to not only improve the quality and comfort of eyewear, but also how it is able to improve the vision of the wearer.

The "Leading Edge" with Jimmy Johnson is a program produced for Public Television and, in this episode, looks to explore the evolution of eyewear, how it has changed over the years and what the latest transformations in technology mean for eyeglass wearers. From improved visibility to the reduction of glare and a better comfort level, there is no area in which eyeglasses are not progressing at a rapid pace. All of these improvements are designed to help those who wear eyeglasses, regardless of their prescription or particular needs.

The series is distributed to Public Television stations throughout the United States and is not distributed through PBS. Please visit the Leading Edge website at or email the producers at info(at)leadingedgeseries(dot)com for more information.
