Method and Systems for Dynamic Vision Adaptive Monitor

    Over 100 million people in the United States today use computers and devices with monitors. More than 50 percent experience eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision and other conditions related to sustained use of such devices. Compounding this issue, many users have some type of vision impairment that requires correction. The most common solution to the problem has been the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct or improve vision problems and reduce eyestrain.

    In this invention an adaptive monitor is suggested to reduce eyestrain resulting from extended computer use and alleviate the need for glasses. In this invention an adaptive monitor is suggested. Intelligent software will adjust the information displayed on the monitor based on the distance between the user and the screen.

The advantages of this invention are: Improved Human Computer Interface Reduces eye strain and related ailments

The invention would work as follows.
1. A software program would be developed and deployed on the machine that could adjust the information displayed on a monitor using the distance between the user and the monitor.

    2. A low powered radar device mounted on the monitor could be used to determine the distance between the user and the monitor. This would allow the software to dynamically update (adjust the magnification setting of the ) the screen based on changes in the position of the user.
