Can metamaterials make things look farther away?

There's stories lately of "metamaterials", material with cleverly constructed structure that can serve as lenses or make objects invisible.

I'm wondering if these metamaterials might be able to make a computer monitor screen appear to be farther away than they actually are.

If so, perhaps there's a way I could view my monitors without wearing my reading glasses.
