Breakthroughs

Most of the materials needed to make The Strabismus Glasses have already been invented; Our job would be to just put all the necessary components into a functioning device. For example, there will need to be sensors to sense the position of the eyes. Once it senses that an eye is drifting and looking in a different direction than the "good" eye, it will turn on the LCD (liquid crystal display, like the material in older cell phones' screens) to block the good eye. After the eye has been blocked, the "bad" eye will be forced to stop drifting up or looking to the side. There can be an additional option in the glasses that that lets a USB connector be attached so the doctor can see how many times the LCD device has been necessary, which will tell the doctor whether the eye has made progress and stopped drifting as often.
