With the development of 3D vision well on the way of being integrated into every device with a display, a lot of questions have surround the use of 3D glasses from trying to produce a universal pair that would work on any device to not having to wear them at all.

Where there may have been some neglect is for those that have to wear prescription glasses all the time including when they watch a movie or a 3D display. Well it seems Marchon3D, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of designer prescription and sunwear, has taken these people into consideration.

They have announced their new line of prescription 3D glasses designed especially for those with sight problems, called Marchon3D Ultraclips. They work in a clip-on style similar to clip-on sunglasses. They have micro-magnets that hold the polarized M3D lense clips in place.

As explained in the article by Shane McGlaun at Slashgear the M3D glasses have photochromatic lenses which means they can be used as sunglasses as well as 3D glasses so are dual-purpose. They will be available this spring from Eyecare.
