Samsung makes custom 3D glasses to woo people without 20/20 vision

Samsung thinks 3D TVs without the glasses won't come for another 5-10 years, but that isn't stopping the company from trying to convert every person to today's 3D. The glasses you need for 3D can annoy people who already wear glasses since no one want to wear two pairs of frames. Samsung has a plan to woo them.

The Korean electronics giant plans to work with optometrists to provide custom-made 3D glasses with prescriptions for those who have bad eyes. Its kind of like getting prescription swimming goggles. Samsung says that it will take about a week for the 3D glasses to be made. No price has been provided by Samsung, but seeing as how the average pair of 3D glasses ranges from about $70 to $100 — when you throw in the prescription, its bound to cost more. Probably a lot more.

Of course, you can always just pop in a pair of contact lenses and then wear those 3D glasses, but we understand not everyone can comfortably touch their eyeballs with their fingers.
