A new concept in comprehensive UV protection
Shamir Glacier UV offers a new concept in UV protection. Even lenses that claim 100% UV blocking, do not protect the eyes from the UV reflection that reaches the eyes from the rear surface of the lens. The new Glacier UV coating includes extra UV protection that prevents the harmful rays from being reflected into the eyes.
That’s comprehensive UV protection!
REFLECTION FROM REAR LENS SURFACE TO THE EYE
Enhancing visual comfort and style
By applying Shamir’s new aberration-free chromatics, the problem of a reflected rainbow, or Newton Rings, is eliminated from the AR (Anti-Reflective) lens coating. That means enhanced visual comfort with no distracting glares, and a more natural appearance and better-looking lens. This process is also responsible for achieving a perfect match between the lens material and the AR and HC (Hard Coat) layers, ensuring the highest optical performance and coating durability.
EXAMPLE OF NEWTON RINGS ON LENS
Improved water and stain resistance
Due to its specially developed super-slippery composition, the coating is applied in an innovatively thin layer that is both hydro- and oleo-phobic. Its perfect adherence to the top of the AR and HC coating stack results in a lens that is also effectively anti-smudge. That means no more hard-to-clean grease or water spots that interfere with visual acuity.
Repels dust, stays clean
Incorporated into the AR layer of Glacier UV, is a unique, enhanced and transparent layer with powerful anti-static properties that keep the lenses dirt and dust-free.
Much stronger, lasts longer
A dual lens protection process provides lenses with an extremely hard, scratch-resistant coat that is also flexible, preventing lens coat cracking, while protecting the lenses from the wear-and-tear of everyday use. And because it offers superior protection, it enjoys an extended warranty.
