compass lens case

Ordinary lens is designed so as to distinguish left and right by indicating initials of L/R at one side or giving different color.However, people are still confusing about lens’ right and left, or do frequent mistakes in putting on the left and right lenses wrongly.
This design introduced the principle of compass as a way of distinguishing left and right unconsciously.This is a design that does not make confusion between left and right by inducing people to recognize   the west as left and east as right for using according to north and south directions expressed on the lens cases because the lens case and compass are mixed.
