Lenskart To Invest $3 Mn in US-based reading glasses maker ThinOptics

In September 2017, it had invested $1 million in US-based Ditto, which develops 3D face models for Lenskart’s virtual trial service.

Eyewear retailer Lenskart Solutions Pvt. Ltd has invested $500,000 (Rs 3.35 crore) in California, US-based reading glasses manufacturer ThinOptics Inc., the company said.

ThinOptics, which was co-founded by Darren Lancaster in 2010, makes very slim reading glasses with no temples and, frames, that can be tweaked or molded to get the best fit. The company has patented its designs for reading glasses.

“With this investment, we intend to work closely with ThinOptics’ California team for growing the Indian market as well as bringing more innovations in this area,” Lenskart chief executive officer Peyush Bansal said in a press statement.

The ThinOptics deal marks the Indian eyewear retailer’s fourth investment in the past one year. In February, it had made a $4-million strategic investment in eyewear brand John Jacobs. Last December, it had invested an undisclosed amount in Israeli start-up 6over6, which is working on an Android-based eye examination platform.

In September 2017, it had invested $1 million in US-based Ditto, which develops 3D face models for Lenskart’s virtual trial service.
