Pious Jews tempted by scantily clad girls strutting through their neighborhoods can take heart: an ultra-Orthodox organization has developed blurry spectacles that will literally put beautiful women out of sight, if not out of mind.

Stores in Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Mea Sharim will soon start stocking glasses that leaves one’s immediate vision intact, but makes everything beyond 10 feet completely out of focus, Yedioth Ahronoth’s Hebrew website Mynet reports.

For those cursed with 20/20 vision, the organization provides a pair of non-prescription spectacles at a price of $32.50, onto which two semi-transparent stickers can be slapped.

And if their vision is already failing them, the stickers can be applied to the lenses of prescription glasses, leaving the wearer even more myopic than they were before.

  1. This is too weird not to be true. The ultimate rose colored glasses. What happens when someone gets hit by a bus because of blurry vision? It is kind of like the Amish not wanting you to have an education beyond the 8th grade as you might learn something that would lead you elsewhere.
