Your eyewear options are not limited to your frames

"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."

Every person's eyes are unique, and everyone sees the world differently. The more closely your lenses are adjusted to meet your specific needs, the greater the visual clarity and sharpness you will experience. A customized lens design provides optimal performance for your unique vision requirements.
Our primary goal is to provide our clients with the best vision possible. This philosophy is at the core of our commitment to highly customized eyeglasses.

Shamir Autograph Intelligence™

Harnessing today’s cutting-edge technologies, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, Shamir introduces its most advanced progressive lens. Shamir Autograph Intelligence™ is a continuous lens design that optimally matches the wearer’s Visual Age™ and Visual Needs.


Shamir Workspace™ and Shamir Computer™

Shamir WorkSpace™ – is the best solution when priority focus is both mid-distance and near viewing. Shamir WorkSpace™ is ideal for both mid-distance and near viewing. Offering a depth of field, up to 10 feet, these lenses provide sharp vision whether the required focus is on the desk or a colleague across the room. It is also the best occupational solution for those who are actively moving around their work place throughout the day, providing clarity for tasks performed within 10 feet. Professionals that may benefit from Shamir WorkSpace™ include florists, sales clerks, nurses, chefs, receptionists, surgeons, and hairdressers.

Shamir Computer™ is designed to provide you with a wide field of near viewing with clear vision up to 5 feet - a far greater depth of field than that offered by conventional reading lenses. These lenses are ideal for people working at a computer or who are primarily stationary at their desk/workstation throughout the day. Professions that may benefit from Shamir Computer™ include architects, post office clerks, software engineers, data entry clerks, graphic designers, pianists and more.


Shamir Blue Zero™

Most of us spend many hours a day sitting in front of a TV, computer screen, tablet, or smartphone. If you spend hours a day in front of a screen, sooner or later, you are likely to feel discomfort in your eyes including soreness, fatigue, and blurriness. Some blue light exposure is important as it helps regulate our sleep and helps stave off depression. The problem with blue light from digital devices is that it is a lot of focused and continuous blue light in a way we don't experience in nature. Shamir Blue Zero allows for ultimate protection from blue light while maintaining nearly clear lens clarity. We are excited about the opportunity to provide our clients with this level of protection. Just as sunglasses are important outdoors, Shamir Blue Zero is just as important indoors.
