People with contacts may soon not need sunglasses.

The FDA has approved the first contact lenses with light-adaptive technology.

The Acuvue Oasys automatically darkens in bright light.

The lenses react to the sun’s ultraviolet rays and will return to their normal tint when the user moves to normal or darker lighting.

They will be available next year for consumers.
