New glasses that blur the features of “improperly dressed” women have been invented for ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel, daily Bugün has reported.

The product has been produced for conservative Jewish men who have to work with secularly dressed women away from their religious environment.

The glasses with a special lens shows everything clearly within a few meters while blurring objects that are more than two or three meters away. As such, the glasses are reportedly able to prevent men from looking at women who are not complying with ultra-Orthodox Judaism.

The glasses cost six dollars, according to reports.

Clearly, these men have no vision anyway. The problem is not with what they see, irt is with what they think!

I bet you could make a lot of money selling these things to certain circles in Turkey. They should go like hot cakes in Iran. Big business opportunity here.

Jesus Jones!!! This was among the most stupid things I have heard about. Walking around with glases preventiing you from seeing,m because you might face a woman? And I guess women are not walking around naked in Israel. The only good thing with it is that the religious fanatics solve their problme themselves in the sens that they do not stop women from going out or to cover, but instead themselves ensure that the are not able to see them. So no one is actually suffering from their ideas. .
