Extensive research went into creating Glacier Plus. It is the optimal lens coating that won’t wear off or scratch. It leaves the lens clear and free of distracting reflections, and it’s easier than ever to keep clean. Now, Shamir has made it even better with its new improved version. Glacier Plus UV provides all that, plus the most comprehensive UV protection for the eyes, blocking both incoming and rear surface reflected rays.

UV PROTECTION

A new concept in comprehensive UV protection 

Shamir Glacier Plus 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 Plus UV coating includes extra UV protection that prevents the harmful rays from being reflected into the eyes.
That’s comprehensive UV protection!

IMPROVED ANTI-REFLECTION

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.

SUPER HYDROPHOBIC

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.

DURABLE

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.
