META SHIELD is a flexible holographic optical film engineered to provide laser glare protection by selectively blocking 532 nm green laser light (used in >90% of laser strikes). Unlike dye-based alternatives, it is highly transparent and causes minimal color distortion.

"Hand-held lasers are widely available and becoming more powerful every few years. Laser strikes can distract, dazzle, or even cause temporary flash blindness, hampering operational effectiveness for law enforcement personnel. META's holographic technology offers a new and unique solution to this problem," said Scott Richards, Chief Marketing Officer.
