In this paper we discuss the design of an optical see-through head-worn display supporting a wide field of view, selective occlusion, and multiple simultaneous focal depths that can be constructed in a compact eyeglasses-like form factor. Building on recent developments in multilayer desktop 3D displays, our approach requires no reflective, refractive, or diffractive components, but instead relies on a set of optimized patterns to produce a focused image when displayed on a stack of spatial light modulators positioned closer than the eye accommodation distance. We extend existing multilayer display ray constraint and optimization formulations while also purposing the spatial light modulators both as a display and as a selective occlusion mask. We verify the design on an experimental prototype and discuss challenges to building a practical display.
