Innovation is not only about developing the most advanced technology and introducing the highest product quality and performance; it’s also about being consistent and creative. Glacier PLUS™ Metaform™ uses advanced algorithms to ensure that every optical and physical property of its multi-feature Preform™ is most precisely and reliably index-matched, ensuring full uniformity. The Preform™ contains a super-resistant optical film that is also used by the automobile, aviation, and space industries, due to its impact resistance qualities – enabling a thinner and lighter lens. This reduces common pitfalls of standard coatings such as Newton rings, undesired light dispersion effects, and other potential visual imperfections. Glacier PLUS™ Metaform™ technology answers this need with materials on 1.6, 1.67, 1.74, and NOW available on Transitions™ Signature® GEN 8 Brown and Grey.
