A New Visual Experience
Based on a groundbreaking concept in lens design, Shamir Autograph III is a new balanced progressive lens, holistically adapted to the patient, and ensuring a clear and comfortable visual experience.
Addressing the Visual Experience of Hyperopic and Myopic Presbyopes. Shamir’s R&D team focused on the fact that although their lens design is the same, each patient’s perceived viewing field is significantly different, based on their prescription. A minus power lens increases the field of view, while a positive power lens has the effect of reducing the field of view. This results in hyperopic patients experiencing a narrower viewing field than that experienced by their myopic counterparts.
THE REAL WORLD VISION EXPERIENCE: Eye-Point Technology III ™
Shamir’s Eye-Point Technology is a radical departure from conventional eyeglass lens analysis tools. It simulates the way the human eye sees at every angle of vision and in every optical zone, to predict how an image will be perceived by the brain.
Ensuring accurate design and analysis, this technology enables the development and manufacture of sophisticated, tailor-made progressive lenses. Combining lens surface topography data with a highly advanced mathematical algorithm, this sophisticated technology calculates the optical performance of thousands of locations covering the progressive lens surface.
PERFECT VISION FOR ANY FRAME CHOICE: As-Worn Tecnology.
Adapting the lens to the way it’s worn. Shamir’s unique As-Worn Technology bridges the geometric gap between the trial frame used by the optometrist when measuring the client’s prescription, and the actual frame chosen by the client.
Three essential measurements are determined: Pantoscopic tilt, vertex distance, and Panoramic angle of the client’s eyewear. This ensures that the prescription as experienced by the patient once the lens is fit into the frame, is the same as the original prescription measured by the optometrist.
NEW ERGONOMIC DESIGN CONCEPT: Natural Posture ™
The near viewing zone in Shamir Autograph III is dynamically located within the lens corridor, taking into account the positive or negative power of the prescription.
With previous technology you must tilt your head forward or back, or lower or raise the book, in order to find the right viewing distance and angle. Our new technology reduces this need. Any postural discomfort is thereby minimized and patients are ensured a comfortably natural posture during near viewing.
UNIQUE POWER PROFILE FOR CLEARER VISION: IntelliCorridor ™
This new technology allows Shamir’s designers to control the power profile of the lens, giving variable emphasis to the power for every given point on the lens. Shamir Autograph III is therefore optimally suited to meet the visual needs of today’s modern lifestyles that include frequent use of digital devices, without compromising on optimal viewing comfort for every viewing distance and activity.
