Shamir Autograph® III – A New Visual Experience

September 10, 2018

Always looking for ways to improve vision.

Based on a groundbreaking new concept in lens design, Shamir Autograph® III is a balanced progressive lens, holistically adapted to the patient’s prescription, ensuring a clear and comfortable visual experience for all with the following features:

Taking into consideration additional parameters while designing the Shamir Autograph® III, Shamir’s R&D team developed many new features that provide the patient an optimized visual experience that is truly enhanced and personalized to their visual needs unlike any design Shamir has previously released.

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 plus 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.


Eye-Point Technology III®

1Seeking to overcome the problem of different prescription-related viewing experiences through the same width viewing zone of the lens and questioning what the patient truly sees, Shamir has applied reverse engineering to its technology. Starting by defining the size of the object we want patients to see, Shamir`s Eye-Point Technology III is now able to simulate real world images and support the design of lenses that provide an improved viewing experience for all patients regardless of lens power and frame choice.


Natural Posture™

2The 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. This reduces the need to tilt the head forward or back, or alternatively to lower or raise a book when reading in an attempt to find the right viewing distance and angle. Any postural discomfort is thereby minimized and patients are ensured a comfortably natural posture during near viewing.



3This 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.


As-Worn Quadro™

4As-Worn Technology™ ensures that the patient’s experience of the prescription once the lens is fit into the frame, is exactly the same as when originally measured by the optometrist, giving the patient the same viewing comfort and visual acuity. Multiplying the design dimensions by four, As-Worn Quadro improves on this technology, allowing Shamir Autograph III to provide four times greater design stability to frame tilt variations in any chosen frame.

How to fit Shamir Autograph® III

Provide the following information to order :
• Supply the Doctors refracted Rx

• Frame Data: (A, B, DBL) or frame tracer file

• Fitting height & Mono PD (far)

• Panoramic angle

• Pantoscopic tilt (patient should hold his head in a natural position and look straight ahead during measurement)

• Fitted vertex distance

Min Fitting Heights:

11mm, 13mm, 15mm, 18mm

*Variable design also available: 11mm and up

Maximum measurements for maximum lens performance

For maximum lens performance, Shamir strongly recommends providing all the above mentioned measurements. Shamir also recommends providing the patient’s frame measurements
(panoramic angle, pantoscopic tilt and fitted vertex distance) based on measurements made with one of Shamir’s measuring tools.

The final result – An amazing improvement in the visual experience of hyperopic presbyopes and unparalleled clarity for all!
