Digital 5.0 lenses are individually crafted Freeform lenses, and take into consideration the wearer position, pantoscopic tilt of the frame, wrap angle of high base curve eyewear, and vertex distance.

Everyone likes to look their best, including those who choose to wear bifocals. The visible line across lines bifocals, generally seen as an age marker, gives the lens an undesirable look. At the same time it compromises visual comfort by creating a disturbing image jump.
To overcome these disadvantages, Shamir has developed a new bifocal lens design-Shamir Duo. An advanced Freeform lens, Shamir Duo offers surface continuity, eliminating the image jump and loss of image. By eliminating these problems associated with traditional bifocal lenses, Shamir Duo maintains a natural, distortion free visual path as the eye moves from one vision zone to another. Now with Shamir Duo, there is no need to compromise either on appearance or on visual comfort.
If you’re a golfer and you’ve been wondering why your game has been subpar, there’s a good chance it’s because of your glasses. Standard progressive lenses are designed for everyday use and are not optimized for the golf course. Did you know that you focus on three crucial focal points while on the green? Yep, the scorecard in your hand, the ball at your feet, and the green in the distance.
Shamir Golf is a Freeform lens designed to ensure you experience the perfect game. The three zones of vision are specifically tailored to meet the needs of golfers to maximize your viewing and provide sharp focus without distortion in these crucial areas. It is also the first Golf lens designed with a stable mid-range zone to ensure the ball on the ground can be seen clearly so that you will have an accurate drive or putt.
The world around us may not look the same through a pair of glasses. That’s because lenses are not optimized for our prescription. Based on a groundbreaking new concept in lens design, the Shamir Autograph III is a balanced progressive lens, holistically adapted to the patient’s prescription to ensure that you see objects with a “real world view.”
The Autograph III is also ergonomically designed to allow wearers more comfort in reading. A standard progressive lens has a reading area set in the same spot for everyone, while in the Autograph III the reading area is located in the most optimal position for your eyes. We can determine where the best position for the reading area is based on your prescription, which means no more shifting and moving your head to try to find that sweet spot.
In addition, the Autograph III has been enhanced for viewing those digital devices you use on a daily basis, like your smartphone, tablet, and e-reader, in a comfortable and natural position.
