Adlens, the global leader in variable focus technology for the eyewear industry, opened on November 21st, a new manufacturing facility in Oxford, U.K. to lead the production of Adlens Focuss.
Adlens has developed several lines of variable focus eyewear technology and Adlens Focuss is poised to change the landscape of progressive lenses by taking full advantage of the latest advances in Adlens’ technology.
Currently, progressive lenses incorporate distance and reading into one shared lens, causing adaptation and wearing issues for many people. Adlens Focuss delivers a full field of vision to progressive lens wearers by allowing them to turn a small dial on the inside of the temple arm to adjust their prescription to a range of customized powers. Advances in Adlens’® current technology have also led to key design enhancements, making
Adlens Focuss the company’s most fashion-forward to date. Adlens Focuss will be available in three styles, each with a choice of six rich finishes and colours.
“Adlens was founded in 2005 in Oxford and we are pleased to continue tapping into the UK talent pool and supply chain to design and manufacture a game-changing product like Adlens Focuss,” said Michael C. Ferrara, CEO and Executive Chairman of Adlens. “While we are celebrating this milestone today in a community deeply connected to our roots, the evolution of our eyewear technology will have significant impact on the lives of many who wear progressives worldwide.”
In addition to focusing on the production of Adlens Focuss, the Variable Power Optics (VPO™) Centre will provide an innovation base for Adlens® as they continue to expand and improve upon their offerings. The VPO™ Centre is critical to enhancing Adlens’ capacity to meet demands for eyewear technology generated by partnerships with optical retailers. LensCrafters, the largest optical retailer in the United States will have retail exclusivity on Adlens Focuss through the first half of 2014.
