#VisionFIRST - Shamir USA


America’s Healthcare Workers and First Responders are putting themselves at risk to help the nation defeat COVID-19.  Shamir has partnered with participating optical labs, to provide complimentary prescription lens designs for safety eyewear or other lens types.


Shamir is collaborating with Optical Laboratories nationwide, that produce Shamir Freeform or Digital lenses, and have chosen to participate in Shamir’s #VisionFIRST program. #VisionFIRST is Shamir’s vehicle to make it easier for Healthcare Workers and FIRST RESPONDERS to keep their vision, First!  


“We are all in this together”, said Raanan Naftalovich, CEO, “The nation will return to normal, but first we need to ensure the safety of our Healthcare Professionals holding the front-line.”  Shamir’s premium lens products are actively used in the Optical industry today in the form of Safety Eyewear or Occupational (small task) lenses, Progressive or Single Vision lenses.


#VisionFIRST is expected to contribute thousands of pairs of complimentary eyewear, with Shamir digital designs, to FIRST RESPONDERS.  “Our hope is to collaborate with as many Shamir Optical Lab partners as possible, increasing the opportunity to provide enhanced vision for those holding the front-line”, said Raanan.
