JINS SCREEN: Lenses to Protect You from Blue Light
Whether we like it or not, blue light is surrounding us more and more. The light with a wavelength of 380-495nm is the most energetic light in visible light, and has a high penetration rate to the glasses. Long-term contact damages retinal cells and crystals, thereby increasing macular degeneration. Therefore, anti-blue light glasses have become an inevitable increase in the number of people who require glasses. Even those with perfect eyesight are starting to buy a pair.
In response to this demand of modern people, JINS launched the anti-blue light SCREEN series, which includes 25%, 40% and 60% anti-blue light lenses that are suitable for general daily use. As for the highest level of 60%, it is designed for those who use electronics before going to bed which can effectively reduce and impact how well one sleeps.
JINS Switch: Clip-on Sunglasses Evolution
Maybe 5 years ago, sunglasses in Japan weren't very popular. Now more and more people are starting to wear them which has brought Japan to creating many new designs. Currently, sunglasses where the lenses flip up turning into regular lenses are everywhere. Following the similar idea, JINS has developed a detachable sunglasses series "JINS Switch", which makes it easy to attach or detach lightweight sunglasses with the special magnetic design of the frame. This type of frame is available in a variety of styles, including vintage round, classic square, plain, and floral options.
Protection from Not Only Blue Light but Uvb and Uva
JINS VOILET+: Protection from Not Only Blue Light but UVB and UVA
This series is a new type of lens developed by JINS based on new medical research. UV rays have higher energy than visible light rays, which makes them capable of producing changes in the functioning of your eyes. These glass lenses can preserve the wavelength of 360-400nm light while filtering blue light and ultraviolet light, which can effectively help children to suppress the increase of nearsightedness.
As a brand of glasses, JINS also regards the protection of children's vision as their own responsibility, developed the JINS VIOLET+ series of lenses, designed a frame suitable for children. It allows light to be preserved when filtering out blue light and ultraviolet light, which is good for children to help prevent nearsightedness.
Getting Your Glasses Is Simple and Quick! Get it within 30mins!
Step 1 - Pick the frame you like
JINS has a variety of frames to choose from. Most general frame with ordinary lenses cost 5000yen (excluding tax). If you want to add special features of the lens, it is an added 3000 to 5000yen. After deciding, go to the counter to check out!
Step 2 - Vision test
Since there are so many foreigners that come to JINS to buy glasses, JINS changed the eyesight chart to a more user-friendly one. Japan normally uses circles and you have to say which side of the circle is open (left, right, up, or down). However, only at JINS do they do they roman alphabet!!! It makes things SO much easier!! They have multilingual staff too so there is no need to worry about a language barrier.
Step 3 - Confirm the desired frame and lens
When the clerk has all the information needed, the frame and lens selected will be placed in a small red box for the customer for confirmation.
Step 4 - Waiting
Step 5 - Fitting
The new glasses that our of our team members chose were finished! When trying on, pay attention to whether there is any problem such as fuzziness or tightness of the frame. If there are still some adjustments needed to be made, you can tell the staff. If there is nothing wrong, you can leave with your new glasses!
