BOSTON—Inspired by John Lennon’s work, his life and his style, Adlens is launching The John Lennon Collection of variable focus, instant prescription eyewear. The distinctive, round eyewear uses Adlens’ fluid-injection lens technology which allows the power of each lens to be adjusted by turning a dial on the side of the frame. Once set, the system can be sealed by rotating a lever and removing the dials. The glasses are designed for the correction of far sightedness, short sightedness and presbyopia and cover spherical powers from -4.5 to +3.5 diopters.

For every pair of glasses purchased from the collection, Adlens donates a pair to someone in the developing world, through Vision for a Nation Foundation. “This relationship is ideal for us because it embodies the physical and philosophical essence of John Lennon,” said Michael C. Ferrara, CEO and executive chairman of Adlens.

Adlens, with offices in Oxford, England and Boston, Mass., has a worldwide sub-license for its John Lennon Variable Focus eyewear from Eagle Eyewear, the master eyewear licensee of the John Lennon eyewear collection which is licensed exclusively by Bag One Arts and Yoko Ono Lennon.
