Purdue University researchers have developed a method for generating visual imagery so it is seen in focus even if the person suffers from a refractive vision problem. Current methods require custom display hardware and severely limit the positioning of the person with respect to the display. This method works almost like an advanced form of the classic brightness and contrast display settings by altering the scene content of the display. A person is also able to dial in their own particular diopters of correction needed to produce a crisp and focused image.

Advantages:
-Does not require custom hardware
-Does not restrict the position of view with respect to image
-Customizable settings for each individual

Potential Applications:
-TVs
-Computers
