Shamir Autograph IntelligenceTM -
Designed to match your Visual AgeTM

Today’s progressive lenses provide patients with a “personalized” lens based mostly on the measurements of their selected frame, or “customized” based on lifestyle information from questionnaires. This “one design” concept provides everyone with the same solution. (Fig. 1)

How can we help ECPs make the best lens choice to meet the needs of their patients, without complicating the dispensing process?

How can we offer one product that will meet most customer needs? To answer these questions, Shamir embarked on an extensive research project using methods of Big Data and elements of Artificial Intelligence.


The research findings revealed a clear correlation between each visual need and the Visual AgeTM of the patient, meaning that each Visual AgeTM has different visual preferences and needs.

Visual AgeTM refers to the physiological age of the eye (the required addition) and is generally correlated with the patient’s chronological age.

This conclusion supports the assumption that there is a gap between current progressive lens designs which are the “same for everyone”, and the diversity of today’s individual presbyopic needs.



To design the Shamir Autograph IntelligenceTM, we not only relied on our proven technologies: IntelliCorridorTM, Natural PostureTM, As-Worn QuadroTM and Close-UpTM; but we incorporated three additional technologies into this lens design.

Eye-Point Technology AI

Eye-Point Technology AITM

Using a new software, Head Eye Integrative Movement (HEIM), developed by Shamir engineers, we tracked exactly through which areas in the lens patients actually look, along both the vertical and horizontal meridians in the different vision zones. This technology now enables us to design a lens that takes into account actual viewing angles computed for every distance.

Continuous Design Technology

Continuous Design TechnologyTM *

With Shamir’s new Continuous Design Technology, our optical designers integrate various “design genes” based on a number of prototypes developed to form the foundation of one product with a continuous design concept.

By applying Continuous Design Technology to Shamir Autograph IntelligenceTM, we ensure that every patient receives a unique lens design suited to their specific Visual Age™ and based on their visual needs.

Visual AI Engine

Shamir Visual AI EngineTM

Visual AI Engine implements the continuous design concept along the entire matrix of optimization parameters such as: sphere, add, face-form angle, pantoscopic tilt, fitting height, base curve and index. Mimicking human intelligence, the engine runs a multi-dimensional optimization process, based on the various design genes.


Closing the Gap with Shamir Autograph Intelligence™

Shamir Autograph IntelligenceTM is Shamir’s top-of-the-line, most advanced progressive lens, ushering optics into a new dimension in optimally customized, patient-centered lenses.

It provides presbyopic patients at any age with a continuous lens design which is unique according to their Visual AgeTM and visual needs allowing a unique user experience for presbyopes of all ages, with no need to compromise on visual comfort. (Fig. 2)



  • Every lens design is unique by Visual AgeTM
  • Easier adaptation for presbyopes with low Adds
  • Instant focus for every distance
  • Smooth transition between vision zones
  • Unique user experience for every wearer
  • A lens ahead of its time harnessing cutting-edge technologies, such as Big Data and Artificial Intelligence
  • Updated vision zones include digital and computer viewing, with easy switching from one zone to another based on visual needs priorities


Whether your patient is 45 or 65, you can provide them with the best design optimally suited to their visual needs and Visual AgeTM.
