Oxford, UK, January, 2014 – Adlens®, the global leader in variable focus eyewear, launches The John Lennon™ Limited Edition gift set. It is the first time the Oxford-based company introduces a premium quality gift set product. The elegant black gift box, with its purple-coloured-plush velvet interior, contains a pair of John Lennon™ Limited Edition glasses, an embossed leather carrying case, a collector’s booklet, two sets of matching end-caps and instructions for use. The frames of this edition feature a metallic bronze colouration with a purple gradient, which is exclusive to this gift set.
The John Lennon™ Limited Edition gift set extends Adlens®’product portfolio by introducing a 12th product to the John Lennon™ line. Based on the advanced fluid-injection technology that allows instant vision correction and immediate dispensing, the design of The John Lennon™ Collection – endorsed by Yoko Ono – combines modern technology with the legendary style of the greatest rock’n’roll icon of all time, John Lennon™.
John Lennon™ variable focus eyewear is simple; with the turn of a dial, the power of each lens can be adjusted easily between -4.5 and +3.5 dioptres. Once the desired power is achieved, the user seals the lenses and removes the adjusting dials. The result is a pair of glasses that can be set and dispensed in a matter of minutes.
Fluid-injection lens technology closely models the natural dynamic behaviour of the eyes and was created to provide those in need of vision correction with a simple way of restoring vision quality and control. In keeping with its philanthropic heritage, Adlens® donates a pair of glasses to someone in the developing world for every pair of fluid-injection glasses purchased through their Buy One Give One programme. Distribution of the glasses is administered by Vision for a Nation Foundation, a charity that runs an innovative programme that provides universal access to eyeglasses, one nation at a time, starting in Rwanda.
Founded in 2005 in Oxford, England by businessman and philanthropist James Chen, Adlens® is the global leader in variable focus eyewear.

Adlens® is a commercial business with a social soul: for every pair of Fluid-Injection glasses purchased, the company donates a pair of glasses to someone in the developing world as part of its Buy One Give One programme. Distribution of the glasses is administered by Vision for a Nation®, a charitable foundation running an innovative programme to provide universal access to eyeglasses, one nation at a time, starting in Rwanda.
