The investment made by ADIA includes some secondary purchases of shares from some of Lenskart’s early supporters. According to estimates, the eyewear company has so far received $1.5 billion in both the first and second rounds. Almost 10 million pairs of eyeglasses have been shipped worldwide by the company since its launch in 2010. The company also boasts more than 20 million application downloads, 300 home eye test specialists, and more than 1,100 stores in India, Singapore, and Dubai, according to information provided by the business last year.

The eyewear company is supported by a number of companies. In a deal worth nearly $400 million in June of last year, the eyewear unicorn acquired the bulk of the Japanese eyewear company Owndays. As a result, the combined company has access to 13 Asian markets, including Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand, and India.
