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
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
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.
