Close Up: More than ever before, consumers and eyecare practitioners are making purchasing decisions with sustainability in mind. Shamir’s innovation is committing to going greener with an expansion to the new Glacier Plus Metaform lens-coating technology, which uses fewer resources and chemicals in its production than our premium AR coating, making it an eco-friendly option for consumers.
Glacier Plus Metaform creates a new breed of lenses by rapidly fusing a multi-feature Preform overlay, which combines a range of optical and physical properties in an eco-friendly thermoforming process. The Preform contains a super resistant optical film which is also used by the automobile, aviation, and space industries, due to its impact resistance qualities, enabling a thinner and lighter lens.
“The optical industry went through a revolution with the launch of Freeform, and with Glacier Plus Metaform we are proud to introduce the next technological revolution in the world of optics, breaking the boundaries of what’s possible in lens production,” said Yagen Moshe, CEO of Shamir Optical. “Shamir has always been known for revolutionizing customer experience with new innovations. Glacier Plus Metaform technology takes the experience even further, using special materials and algorithms ensuring rapid production, uniform quality from lens to lens and clearer vision.”
