Traditionally, to enjoy light, thin, or durable lenses you would have to make some difficult choices, like choosing between a light lens or a strong lens, or between a strong prescription or a thin lens. Shamir Glacier PLUS™ Metaform™, a revolutionary new way to coat lenses, removes those compromises and offers all the benefits of our Glacier PLUS™ AR coating.

  • Up to 18 times stronger than the FDA standard requirement.
  • Up to 80% more energy efficient in coating process compared to alternatives. **

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.
