The Award-Winning Lens: Shamir Autograph Intelligence™
Now for the important detail: all about the award-winning lens that lets Shamir prove their well-deserved excellence. The Shamir Autograph Intelligence™ is a progressive lens that is Shamir’s most advanced product that understands the gap between current progressives and what wearers really need from them. This has resulted in a continuous lens design that optimally matches the wearer’s Visual Age™ to their visual needs with 12 lens designs born from the 1 progressive concept.

We know that one size doesn’t fit all and entry level presbyopes will have different visual demands when compared to those 60+ for example, that have been wearing progressive lenses for 20 years. This is why we have centred it around Visual Age™ because there is a correlation to the power of the add and your chronological age; younger wearers require larger Digital Reading zones with smaller intermediate, as opposed to later stage wearers who have far stronger Near visual needs than Digital Reading and less Switch Distance Frequency. The figure below shows each add, and how much it requires of the various vision zones, which are displayed to the right.

The designs are based on extensive research of over 5 million Rx orders which were processed and
implemented using new Shamir technology such as the Visual AI Engine™. The complex design of this lens meant that without this technology combines with Artificial Intelligence and Big Data methods, we couldn’t have achieved the extreme accuracy for each Visual Age™.
Proven technologies such as Natural Posture™ and Close-Up™ as still utilised in the Autograph Intelligence™ lens designs to ensure comfortable and natural posture, as well as having the ability to adjust reading zone inset to an individual’s convergence during near viewing.
Benefits to the ECP
One of the greatest advantages of the Shamir Autograph Intelligence™ lens is that despite the complexity and extensiveness of the research and design to create the forward-thinking lens, by the time it gets to the ECP, all the hard work has been taken care of and it’s actually a very simple concept that is easy to discuss and dispense.
Part of this is due in part to it being a differentiating premium solution that uses Artificial Intelligence and Big Data which is incredibly exciting which also allows for a specialised design for each Visual Age™ ensuring quick and easy adaptation.
Benefits to the Patient
Thanks to the smooth transitioning between zones with an almost instantaneous focus, patients find it easy to forget they’re wearing progressive lenses. This makes it an ideal solution for a person that finds themselves multi-tasking on a regular basis; you can easily switch between any distance that your lifestyle requires. For example, reading, digital devices and driving.
“Instantly upon putting on my new specs vision was great. There was no adaptation requires. Distance vision was extremely clear with distortions being minimal.”
“I put my new glasses on today and loved them straight away… The clarity is amazing, and it doesn’t even feel like you are
wearing a progressive lens as the transition from near to
distance is very soft (no looking for the sweet spot)”
“I haven’t had to swap out to my task pair while at my computer today. Much better intermediate than my current pair! The
Transitions colour looks great too.”
“these lenses are the easiest to wear. it is like wearing a single vision lens but I have very clear vision near and far, excellent lenses!”
The Autograph Intelligence™ lens is available to purchase in the UK and qualifies as part of our multipair offer, Enrich Life.
