Date:4/7/2009

KIBBUTZ SHAMIR, Israel, April 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Shamir Optical Industry Ltd. (Nasdaq: SHMR) (the "Company") a leading provider of innovative products and technology to the ophthalmic lens market, today announced that the Company received a letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that the Company no longer complies with the audit committee composition requirements as set forth in Marketplace Rule 4350, which requires a listed company to have an audit committee of at least three independent members. As a result of the resignation of Mr. Joseph Tzur from the Company's board of directors on March 20, 2009, the Company's audit committee as of today has only two independent members.

In accordance with Marketplace Rule 4350(d)(4), Nasdaq has provided the Company a cure period to regain compliance until the earlier of the Company's next annual shareholders' meeting or March 20, 2010; or if the next annual shareholders' meeting is held before September 16, 2009, then the Company must evidence compliance no later than September 16, 2009.

During the cure period, the Company's ordinary shares will continue to trade on Nasdaq, subject to the Company's continued compliance with other Nasdaq listing requirements. The Company has begun the process of identifying a third audit committee member and expects to regain compliance with Nasdaq's audit committee composition requirements within the cure period.
