A common complaint from spectacle wearers—and whoever may be talking to them—is the distracting reflections caused by light rays “bouncing off” the lenses of their glasses. Thankfully, lens manufacturers have long used anti-reflective coatings to reduce reflections and improve overall visual quality. One such company, Shamir Optical, recently launched a new AR coating called Glacier Expression that it touts as something even better than existing products.
According to Shamir, people wearing glasses coated with Glacier Expression demonstrated a 25% increase in contrast sensitivity vs. standard AR coating (no brand was specified), leading to improved reaction times during daily activities such as night driving. The company says the new coating also improves how wearers look to others—thereby improving person-to-person connection—and how their eyes feel, by reducing eye strain.
In addition, Shamir just announced an update to its Autograph Intelligence progressive lens design that the company says better reflects real-world visual needs, particularly during computer use.
Both products are now available nationwide.
