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.

Artificial light is a given of modern life, and in today’s high-tech world we are increasingly exposed to light emanating from TV screens and computers, a variety of mobile screens, road signs, headlights, lampposts, and more. Unlike natural light, the spectrum of artificial light is skewed toward High Energy Visible (HEV) light, also called blue light, which is potentially toxic to the retina.

Shamir Glacier Blue-Shield™ UV

Spotlight on advantages

 

  • Minimizes the proportion of HEV light reaching the retina
  • Provides effective protection, preserving visual health
  • Offers a clear lens for comfortable vision in any environment
  • Reduces eye strain
  • Improved anti-reflective properties of rear lens surface for comprehensive UV protection
  • Suitable for any wearer: children, adults, ametropes or emmetropes

Shamir Glacier Blue-Shield UV is a new lens coating that leaves the lens clear*, transmitting as much light as ordinary glasses, while deflecting a significant proportion of the damaging blue light (10% @ 450nm)**. It reflects five times more HEV light off the lens than any existing conventional lens coating. In addition, it improves contrast and reduces eye strain, is easy to clean due to its hydrophobic and anti-static characteristics, is highly durable, and its improved anti-reflection enhances visual comfort.In our changing environment, it is imperative to protect the eyes from peaks of HEV light. With Shamir Glacier Blue-Shield UV, now we can.

* The lens may appear to have a slight yellowish tint.
** A light blue reflection can be detected on the front surface of the lens.

Optical sunwear needs to accommodate a wide range of fashion preferences,
lifestyles, and activities while providing maximum protection and visual comfort.
That’s why Shamir created Shamir Glacier Sun UV, a new lens coating for sunwear that does just that.

Shamir Glacier™ Sun™ UV

Bright benefits from Shamir Glacier Sun UV

 

› Maintains color - Does not change lens tint and protects color from fading

› Extra UV - Protection Absorbs dangerous reflected radiation, minimizes glare

› Scratch resistant - Protects against damage in day-to-day use

› Easy clean - Water, stain, grease and fingerprint resistant, and anti-static dust repellen

 

Achromatic coating specially designed for sunwear

Achromatic, means that this is a bloom-free, clear coating that does not alter the chosen shade of the sunglass lenses, while at the same time preventing the lens color from fading. In addition, it provides easy cleaning due to anti-static and oleo- and hydrophobic characteristics, high durability and scratch resistance, and UV protection with improved anti-reflection – now on sunglasses.

 Extra protective innovation: UV + comprehensive AR anti-reflective properties

 

In addition to UV protection, Shamir Glacier Sun UV’s added feature prevents reflected sunlight from bouncing off the rear surface of the lens and into the eyes. It does this by allowing ultraviolet radiation in the UVA range to pass through and be absorbed into the lens, minimizing glare as well as affording the eyes extra protection from damaging reflected radiation.
