THANK YOU EYRES - YOU SAVED MY SIGHT AND POSSIBLY MY LIFE
Ex-soldier Greg, while on a private military contract in Afghanistan, took a direct blast to his face but his Shamir Tactical saved his eyes from the impact of the flying debris that rocketed into him.
July 2008: It was mid-morning, Greg was providing top cover (in an open-topped Land Rover armed only with an automatic weapon), in a convey escort when an IED (Improvised Explosive Device or homemade bomb) exploded no further than 50 meters away showering him in gravel and small amounts of shrapnel travelling at high speed.
Greg recounts: Shamir Tactical sunglasses absorbed the impact with ease saving my eyesight, the lenses were really scratched and pitted but my eyesight was normal. I can highly recommend Shamir Tactical glasses to anyone who needs impact resistance eye protection in hostile environments.”
Greg was knocked unconscious by the blast. Luckily he survived but came away with burst eardrums, a broken nose and a punctured lung after his body armor had been pierced which left him with chest scarring.
“When I regained consciousness I couldn’t hear. I felt an intense burning sensation from the flash and realized still I was still wearing my sunglasses. I took them off, had a look and realized I could see. I was so relieved to find that I was not blind let alone dead.
“The glasses absorbed the impact just like Shamir Tactical said they would! If the shrapnel had penetrated the glasses then not only would I be blind but quite possibly not here! Thank you Shamir, I owe you my sight, if not my life.”
The gravity of the situation is more than illustrated by the fact that the vehicle in the lead was simply vaporized.
“One of the engineers who examined the glasses determined from the type of damage the lenses sustained that it had been inflicted by flying concrete,” he explained. “Which would have caused substantial damage to my eyes if they were unprotected.”
Greg chose Shamir's to take with him to Afghanistan simply because he didn’t like the army issue glasses: “The Australian military issue glasses were not very stylish. They fogged up and slipped off so I decided to source my own glasses which I found on The Kit Bag’s website.”
“I wanted to be a fashion-conscious mercenary and found that the ESS glasses had a serious impact on my ability to pull in a foreign land,” he joked.
