1. Eye glasses, comprising:
a frame;
at least one lens coupled to the frame;
at least one membrane at least partially covering at least one face of the lens, wherein the membrane covers less than half the area of the face at a lower half of the lens relative to the eye glasses being worn right side up;
a reservoir in fluid communication with the membrane and containing fluid;
a fluid control assembly which controls fluid communication of the fluid between the reservoir and the membrane;
a processor; and
storage accessible to the processor and bearing instructions executable by the processor to:
identify an object on which to focus;
determine a first focal length at which to focus on the object; and
actuate the fluid control assembly to provide fluid to the membrane to configure the portion of the lens bearing the membrane to have a combined focal length corresponding to the first focal length.
