In 2019 Shamir Optical Industry and Independent Lens Specialists formed a strategic partnership in order to provide the New Zealand optical market with industry leading, high quality, genuine New Zealand made spectacle lenses.
Since forming in 2006, Independent Lens Specialists has grown to be a trusted and highly regarded lens manufacturer, not only here at home in New Zealand, but around the world. Investing in the latest technologies and ensuring they stay at the forefront of our industry, both at a local level and internationally, is what has built their reputation to what it is today.
This partnership has enabled us to compete at an international level against the world’s leading providers in terms of product offering, and we are proud to say that some of our lens designed offer features no other leading supplier can.
At Shamir, we understand that quality, care, and service are fundamental values of our optical partners. Our mission is to ensure that your customers receive the best optical products and services available on the market. Our lenses, coatings, and materials are often listed as some of the best in the world making Shamir New Zealand an ideal optical supply partner.
