Consumers today value both the convenience of shopping online & the assurance and expertise that a trusted retail chain has to offer. In India 14% people who need vision correction end up not buying eyewear because they find the buying journey very complicated & inconvenient. Keeping this in mind, Titan Eyeplus has launched a strategic partnership with the country’s E-commerce giant – Flipkart. During the upcoming Big Billion Day, a customer buying a frame on Flipkart can walk into any of the 500+ Titan Eyeplus stores and get a lens free.
This winning combination will allow the customer to choose from a wide variety frames from the comfort of his home, and walk into an Eyeplus store to complete the purchase. Choice of frame is driven by style which is more personal and does not need technical help. On the other hand, lenses are more technical and need to be customized by a customer’s lifestyle. Intervention of an optometrist ensures the best solution. With this partnership both the players are together ensuring best optical shopping experience.

Adlens, the global leader in adjustable focus eyewear, has launched its ground-breaking adjustable prescription eyewear ‘AdlensFocuss™’, the greatest advancement in optics in more than 50 years.
Vision inevitably changes with age and people often need different strength glasses to see at near, intermediate and far distances. Progressive lenses are an option but they have a restricted usable lens area. A GFK Roper Study has shown one-third of wearers say they have trouble adjusting to them with seven to eight percent of wearers saying they cannot adjust to them at all.
AdlensFocuss provides the benefits of a single vision lens – full frame viewing area – with the best features of a progressive lens – the ability to see at different distances. They are prescription glasses with proprietary technology; a unique flexible membrane that allows the power to be adjusted by simply turning small dials on the inside of the frames. AdlensFocuss lenses offer at least four times more viewing area than traditional progressive lenses and come encased in a fashion-forward frame from award-winning designer Blake Kuwahara.
