Rudy Project’s award winning ImpactXTM material has a lower refraction index, internal stress and chromatic dispersion than polycarbonate resulting in higher definition and sharpened image. ImpactXTM is also stronger than any other lens material and is guaranteed unbreakable for life.

The Shamir Duo offers surface continuity, eliminating the visible line that is associated with flat-top bifocals, providing the patient with improved optics. The image jump created by the visible dividing line in flat-tops results in loss of image. With Shamir Duo, a natural, distortion- free path is maintained as the eye moves from one vision zone to another, resulting in enhanced vision and comfort and improved aesthetics.
