Washington: A latest eyewear system made with a combination of glasses and contact lenses could reportedly allow the wearer to have superhuman vision by focusing on finer details of objects that are otherwise not visible to natural eye .

The iOptik lenses, developed by Innovega, has two parts, including contact lenses, which give the wearer enhanced focusing abilities, beyond normal eye`s capacity.
The second part of the system includes glasses, which include flat-panels or micro-projectors that can display apps and media and create a Google Glass-like experience, while wearing them on the contact lenses would further enhance the vision, Mashable reports.

iOptik spokesperson said that a lot of companies are trying to blend contacts and glasses tech into one device but it has limitations of creating a tiny field of view.
The spokesperson further explained that Google Glass is the equivalent of having a smartphone about 24 inches in front of the eyes, while the iOptik system is six times the resolution and 20 times the area, equivalent to looking at a big TV projection.

The company hopes the tech would eventually replace the smartphone, the report added.
