This means wearers will literally be able to watch TV or view photos that are projected directly onto their eyeballs. Once miniature green LEDs are developed (and they’re in the works, as of now), full color displays will be possible.

The precise shade of rose used in that study, known as FL-41, was developed to block the type of flickering blue-green light emitted by fluorescent lamps. This and other bright lights and glare are among the most common migraine triggers, affecting 85 to 90 percent of migraine sufferers, a problem known as photophobia. In a 1991 study of children with migraines, the number of headaches per month in those who wore FL-41-tinted lenses for a four-month period decreased from six to fewer than…
