Footnote: Daisy’s Glasses, affectionately dubbed “Autie Lenses”, do in fact help treat her autistic traits, or at least they used to.

In addition to glare reduction, they also include a small heads-up-display that constantly provides environmental information, including social cues and suggested responses. Over time (and depending on the sensitivity of the user), the display learns what its user wants / needs to see, and eventually as the user adjusts, the lenses provide less coaching and become a smartphone (although critics would claim the distinction doesn’t make it any less of a crutch).

Because of their adaptive features and low profile, Autie Lenses are a common device in the business world as a smartphone, making it incredibly difficult to tell who’s using them because they actually needed the lenses when they were younger, and who’s using them because they just got tired of having so much junk hanging off their belt. Given how both groups are often fircely protective of their lenses, have trouble completing otherwise “simple” tasks without them, and can be difficult to deal with when they’re not wearing them,  the difference between the two is academic.

Besides, it’s a 50/50 shot anyway.
