A new family of customized lenses, Shamir Autograph II
is designed for the 21st Century’s Age of Personalized Optics. It is based on Shamir’s Direct Lens Technology; – a cutting-edge Free Form Technology that is the most advanced surfacing technology for creating premium, personal, finished lenses for different lifestyles. As a result, Shamir Autograph II represents the height of customized back surface optics.
Each Shamir Autograph II is a custom-made personalized lens created to the highest level of optical accuracy (up to 1/100
diopters) by combining each patient’s unique measures and Personalized Freeform Technology. Shamir Autograph’s patented state-of-the-art back surface design provides 20 percent wider fields of vision in all zones by bringing the design closer to the eye.
Shamir Autograph II is the ultimate freeform progressive lens for patients with any lifestyle wanting the highest level of personalized optics available on the market today. By combining the most advanced optical technologies to create an innovative personalized progressive lens, Shamir uses a comprehensive approach to lens design and production.
Built into select new Autograph II designs, FreeFrame Technology is a ground breaking design element that adapts the progressive lens design to the frame itself. Based on the frame shape, this unbelievable new feature dynamically adjusts the corridor length and moves the reading zone to the most optimal position in the frame, retaining the full reading power! Now, progressive wearers have the freedom to choose any frame they like. Every frame picked will have the most optimal design specifically tailored to the frame and patient.
To further fine tune each Autograph II lens, Shamir incorporates As-Worn Technology by taking three additional, specific measurements from the patient: “Pantoscopic Tilt”, “Panoramic Angle II and “Vertex Distance”. These measurements will further fine tune the Rx given to the patient by the doctor to provide the patient with the proper Rx for the frame shape as it’s worn on the face. The Shamir Autograph II design is now fine-tuned to provide the most advanced, tailored optics available anywhere today.
Direct Lens Technology & Prescriptor Software
Transferring this data to the back surface of the lens is the combined effort of Shamir’s Direct Lens Technology and Prescriptor software, which captures each patients personalized information (Rx, PD, frame measurements and personal lifestyle preferences) and selects the design file required to generate a personalized lens. This information is then sent to the freeform production equipment which grinds the Autograph II design on the back surface of the lens, producing a personalized, custom made Autograph II lens, created to the highest level of optical accuracy (0.01 diopters) and 20% wider fields of vision.
