Harnessing today’s cutting-edge technologies, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence, Shamir introduces it’s most advanced progressive lens. Shamir Autograph Intelligence™ is a continuous lens design that optimally matches the wearer’s visual needs and Visual Age™.
Benefits for you:
Designed to Match Your Visual Age™
Today’s progressive lenses provide patients with a "personalised" lens based mostly on the measurements of their selected frame, or "customised" based on lifestyle information from questionnaires. This "one design" concept provides everyone with the same solution.
How can we help you make the best lens choice to meet the needs of your patients, without complicating the dispensing process?
To answer this question, Shamir embarked on an extensive research project using methods of Big Data and elements of Artificial Intelligence. We examined the visual behavior and preferences of presbyopes of all ages, by taking into account their Visual Age™. (Visual Age™ refers to the physiological age of the eye (the required addition) and is generally correlated with the patient’s chronological age.)
Graph A below shows the progressive lens design based on a 'one design' concept. Whilst Graph B below shows the design concept of Shamir Autograph Intelligence™ with its lens design based on Big Data and elements of Artificial Intelligence reflecting the visual behaviour and preferences of presbyopes of all ages.
Analysing visual behavior, we examined the different vision zones, and their frequency of use by presbyopes between the ages of 40 and 80. Our research parameters included near vision, digital vision, intermediate vision, far vision, and switching from one vision zone to another (Switch Distances Frequency™).
Young presbyopes need a good solution for digital reading and support for dynamic vision. Near vision has lower priority, due to reading mainly on handheld digital devices.
Moderate presbyopes demonstrate more balanced needs. All vision zones hold more or less equal importance.
Advanced presbyopes need a good solution for far and near vision, while Switch Distances Frequency™, intermediate vision and digital reading are a lower priority.
Our research findings revealed a clear correlation between each visual need and the Visual Age™ of the patient, meaning that each Visual Age™ has different visual preferences and needs.
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.
Eye-Point Technology AI™
Utilizing Head Eye Integrative Movement software (HEIM), Shamir can now see exactly where in the lens patients actually look, along both the vertical and horizontal meridian, when they specifically perform tasks in the various visual zones.
Continuous Design Technology™
This technology integrates research findings with patient habits and visual needs to provide a smooth, seamless lens design concept for every Visual Age™.
Shamir Visual AI Engine™
By applying elements of Artificial Intelligence that mimic human intelligence, this design engine is able to make go/no-go decisions based on predefined rules. The output ensures uniform and controlled planning for any combination of parameters with extreme accuracy for each new lens design.
Autograph Intelligence™ is our most innovative and intelligent design to date, utilising 12 unique design concepts to fit the visual needs required for each Visual Age™.
Shamir Autograph Intelligence™ closes the gap between visual needs that presbyopes of all ages want and require.
This revolutionary progressive design concept has been tailored based on our in-depth research and is relevant to the visual needs of young, mid, and advanced presbyopes.
Shamir Autograph Intelligence is an award winning product, as Lens Product of the Year award winners in the 2019 Optician Awards, Birmingham, United Kingdom.
