How to fix your lenses with jimin lens
Posted On July 5, 2021
If you’ve ever looked into the eyewear of a friend who lives in Japan, you know that their lenses are often worn with a protective band.
But you don’t need to be a Japanese expat to get an eyeglass company to offer you one of these.
These lenses, which are manufactured in Japan and sold in the U.S., come with a special adhesive that’s used to attach the lenses to your face.
The adhesive has been around for years, but until recently, the adhesive was mostly used to glue plastic or metal to your glasses, so you couldn’t remove the adhesive with your fingers.
Now, thanks to a Kickstarter campaign that has raised nearly $100,000 in just four days, you can get the adhesive-free eyeglasses that you’ve been looking for.
“It’s a revolutionary new technology that allows the glasses to be worn by people of any nationality,” said Matt Hoch, founder and CEO of JDM Lens Co., the company behind the jimina, or contact lens, adhesive.
The jiminas can also be used on contact lenses made for people with permanent or intermittent vision loss.
If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to buying your glasses directly from an eyeworn company, these are great choices for those who want to have a bit more flexibility.
The contact lens adhesive works on most types of contact lenses.
However, it’s especially good for lenses that are made for use in contact lenses for children, people with disabilities, or people with other visual impairments.
“These glasses are designed to be wearables and not just cosmetic,” Hoch said.
The price for the adhesive is currently $9.99 per jiminal.
To get one of the adhesive free, you need to pledge $5,000 to the campaign.
The campaign closes on February 11, and the adhesive will be available for pre-order on February 16.
The Kickstarter campaign is also available in Spanish.
