Shamir Glacier Plus UV IR
Infra-red light can be harmful.
Infra-red light is energy that produces heat. It is used in the food industry's ovens to heat our food. When it arrives from the sun, it heats our eyes. The body has a natural defense mechanism against overheating. However, when the eyes are bathed in strong sunlight, the natural mechanism cannot cope and the eyes are in danger of damage. What's more, infra-red sunlight becomes even stronger when reflected off surfaces such as water, snow, sand or pavement, then our eyes need protection.
The Solution: Shamir Glacier+ UV IR™
