I really enjoyed this one! Reminds me of when I had my lens replaced - my let eye can see long distances and the right, middle and closeup :) (No infrared though! lol)
this is high quality science fiction right here, loved this piece!

I wonder if she’d be at an advantage to the robber with the new lenses

For once the robber is a woman. In almost every book I have read with such a scene, its a man who does the 'sticking up'. Glad to see you putting that stereotype to rest in here.

What could she see with night vision when her eyes were covered? Haha

How is it that this hypertech contact lens can switch between stages of vision? What is the process that it goes through, or per se the strategy used?  Does it depend on an amount of blinks or does it use a remote controller or does it rely on brain waves?
