1. What are Insta-Focus Glasses™?
Insta-Focus Glasses™ consist of contemporary sunglass frames with black plastic lenses punched through with several rows of tiny holes (pinholes) in a prescribed configuration. The placement of the holes is such to turn blurry images into focused ones for nearly any person with blurry vision, whether nearsighted, farsighted, or astigmatic.

2. How can the same pair of I-F glasses work for anyone?
The same set of Insta-Focus lenses correct blurry vision for anyone because they work by directing light rays onto the retina at the back of the eye and not through the use of an artificial lens.  The pinhole principle has the same effect on every eye, regardless of the type or degree of vision correction required.

3. How do Insta-Focus Glasses™ work?
 For a person to see images clearly, the light rays entering the eye must come to a focus on the retina at the back of the eye.  People who have blurry vision, for whatever reason, cannot see images clearly because the light rays entering the eye focus either in front of the retina or behind it. The Insta-Focus lenses work by letting into the eye only the rays which pass through the center portion of the pupil, blocking out all the rest.  It produces a slightly darker image, but all of the light rays entering the eye focus directly on the retina.  There is no blur, just a clear, focused image. To most people, it seems like magic.

4. Who do Insta-Focus Glasses™ work for?
Almost anyone who has blurry vision can see clearly with the Insta-Focus Glasses™.  They work for people who suffer from eye strain, nearsightedness, farsightedness, cataracts, astigmatism, and even for people who have farsightedness associated with middle-age (presbyopia).  They do not work well for people who suffer from visual defects greater than 6 diopters, and they are not useful for people who suffer from glaucoma or macular degeneration, since these conditions are caused by damaged optic nerves.

5. How long have Insta-Focus Glasses™ been around?
Pinhole glasses were first conceived by a scientist named Scheiner in 1573, and the U. S. Patent Office awarded Patent No. 1,959,915 for "lensless spectacles" to a Charles C. Guthie of Pittsburgh, PA on May 22, 1934.  Since 1934 the devices have been known as "pinhole glasses."

6. Why has it taken so long for this technology to reach the public?
Pinhole glasses have been around since 1934, but they never became popular for 3 main reasons: 1) flimsy appearance; 2)  unsubstantiable claims made by vendors, causing those operations to be closed down by the FDA, and 3) fierce opposition from the optical industry, which stands to lose billions from the popularity of pinhole glasses.  Half of the glasses they sell can be replaced by pinhole glasses.

7. How are Insta-Focus Glasses™ different from regular glasses?
The primary difference between the two is that Inst-Focus Glasses are a natural form of vision correction and eyeglasses correct blurry vision artificially.  I-F Glasses can never harm one's eyesight while prescription lenses can cause one's eyesight to weaken over time.  Wearing eyeglasses or contacts with illuminated screens such as computer monitors causes headaches and sore eyes, while a person can use I-F Glasses for hours on end without experiencing eye strain. The only advantage that prescription glasses have over I-F Glasses is that they can be used at all times, while I-F Glasses can't be used in dark places and are not recommended for use while driving due to the reduced peripheral vision they cause.

8. Can Insta-Focus lenses really let you see as clearly as eyeglasses do?
Absolutely.  We all have been brainwashed by the optical industry into believing that people with blurry vision can see clearly again only with the use of ground glass lenses prescribed by an eye doctor.  That is not true.  Even people who have worn glasses or contacts for years can see images clearly with a pair of Insta-Focus Glasses™.

9. Who should use Insta-Focus Glasses™?
They can be used by anyone who has blurry vision, young or old, who require visual correction between plus or minus 6 diopters.  There is no upper or lower age limit for wearing the I-F glasses since they are perfectly safe.  They can be worn by small school children who develop myopia (nearsightedness) due to excessive reading or by people in their 40s or older who have presbyopia, the farsightedness which develops with middle age.

10. How should Insta-Focus Glasses™ be used?
    The most common uses for I-F Glasses are:

  • As natural alternatives to reading glasses
  • When using the computer, to eliminate eye strain
  • By school children who have trouble seeing the board in the classroom
  • For watching TV
  • For watching movies in movie theaters
  • For watching outdoor concerts or spectator sports
  • For reading labels in stores or menus in restaurants

11. Are there times when I-F Glasses should not be used?
Yes. Because of the reduced peripheral vision (side vision) that is caused by the dark lenses, Insta-Focus Glasses™ are best used when seated or when standing still.  They are not recommended to be used when operating a motor vehicle.
top

12. Are Insta-Focus Glasses™ something like sunglasses?
Not really.  Although they resemble sunglasses, I-F Glasses work like eyeglasses.  I-F glasses provide no light reduction because the wearer is looking through open holes, not a tinted lens.
top

13. How can Insta-Focus Glasses™ eliminate eye strain?
The Insta-Focus lenses work by reducing the amount of light entering the eye.  Too much light coming into the eye is what causes eye strain.

14. Is it true that Insta-Focus Glasses™ can "restore" a person's eyesight?
Although many vendors of pinhole glasses have claimed that wearing the devices a few minutes a day will restore one's blurry vision to normal, no research has ever been conducted to prove this to be true. On the other hand, many users insist that their vision improved substantially due to their regular use of the I-F Glasses.  What has been established is that regular use of the I-F Glasses will preserve a person's eyesight intact and prevent further deterioration from taking place.

15.  How distracting are the little holes?
Looking through rows of tiny holes is obviously not the same as looking through a clear glass lens, but for most people, the benefits of using the I-F Glasses far outweigh the inconvenience of having to look through the little holes.  After a short period of adjustment, rather than seeing actual holes in front of your eyes, it is very similar to looking through a black veil.  Particularly when used with an illuminated screen such as a computer monitor or TV screen, the "veil" is hardly noticeable after a couple of minutes. 
top

16. Can Insta-Focus Glasses™ replace eyeglasses?
Yes and no. It all depends on the nature of your vision problem. If you are FARSIGHTED (can't see close up) you can throw away your reading glasses and forget about ever buying another pair. However, if you are NEARSIGHTED and need to use glasses for such tasks as driving, you will still need the glasses when performing those tasks. Pinholes should not be used for driving due to the loss of light and limited peripheral vision that they provide, but you WILL be able to use I-F Glasses when watching TV or movies or when sitting in the back of an auditorium.  The more you use the I-F Glasses, the better.  Using them exercises your eye muscles, but when you use eyeglasses your eye muscles relax and get weaker.
