Shamir’s new family of high quality Freeform® occupational lenses is a benefit to opticians and patients alike. It offers the perfect customized solution whether the patient needs to concentrate on close work at the computer while keeping near surroundings precisely in focus, or works at the computer while also focusing on mid-distance workspace. Now with two options, Shamir Computer™ and Shamir WorkSpace™, it’s faster and easier than ever to order the perfect patient solution.

The lenses that effectively alleviate Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)

One of the most common complaints in today’s workplace is Computer Vision Syndrome, the orthopedic problems that result from prolonged muscle strain due to attempts to achieve optimal eye-screen interaction. With Shamir Computer™ and Shamir WorkSpace™, presbyopic computer users no longer need to lift their head to see the computer clearly, as with progressive lens designs, or bend their neck to peer over the top of reading glasses. Every wearer of the new advanced Shamir occupational lenses can hold their head and neck in a natural comfortable position while enjoying perfect focus.


Shamir Computer™

For those focused on immediate surroundings

When focusing on a computer and its near surroundings is a top priority, Shamir Computer™, an advanced Freeform® lens, provides a wide field of near viewing with clear vision up to 5ft. – a far greater depth of field than that offered by conventional reading lenses.

Shamir Computer™ is ideal for those patients working on a computer throughout the day, especially those working with multiple monitors. It is important to understand that Shamir Computer™ serves other occupations as well, because it provides clear vision for any task performed within 5ft.

Below is a list of occupations that may benefit from Shamir Computer™:

• Lab Technician
• Pianist
• Accountant
• Data Entry Clerk
• Graphic Designer


Sharp focus for dynamic workers

Shamir WorkSpace™ is the best solution when priority focus is both mid-distance and near viewing. Offering a greater depth of field, up to 10ft., this advanced and highly sophisticated Freeform® lens design, allows movement within the workspace and sharp vision whether the required focus is on the desk or a colleague across the room.

If working on near tasks and interacting with employees or presenting to groups fall within the patients daily tasks, Shamir WorkSpace™ is the ideal solution. It is also the best occupational solution for those who are actively moving around their work place throughout the day, providing clarity for those tasks performed within 10ft.

Below is a list of occupations that may benefit from Shamir WorkSpace™:

• Florist
• Sales Clerk
• Nurse
• Chef
• Receptionist
• Optician

NATURAL POSTURE™ Ergonomic Design Concept

Occupational environments are often designed to fit the worker‘s needs to ensure comfortable working conditions. Wearing Progressive lenses provides only a partial solution for the near and intermediate zones, while compromising ergonomics. Patients wearing reading glasses at work may suffer from similar neck issues due to the lenses not being optimized for their work environment. Shamir Computer™ and Workspace™ lenses apply the Natural Posture™ concept by definition. The lenses are optimized to allow presbyopes to view their computer or look across the room with the most natural posture. Patients will no longer suffer from neck problems at the end of their work day. The patients will choose between two options to best fit their occupational needs: Shamir Computer™ for small environments up to 5ft, with a wider yet shorter depth of field, or Shamir WorkSpace™ for mid-sized rooms, or professionals who are in motion with less concentration on the computer. Shamir WorkSpace™ has a narrower field of view with longer depth of field.

INTELLICORRIDOR™ Unique Power Profile for Clearer Vision

Based on IntelliCorridor™ technology, Shamir’s designers have been able to create two different occupational solutions for a wide range of work environments. Shamir Computer™ concentrates on close distances: from reading, to the computer screen, to a distance up to 5ft - all with optimized power for sharp vision. Shamir WorkSpace™ has been designed for a longer depth of field: from reading, to about 10ft. In between, the profile is also optimized to provide clear vision for mid-distance tasks.
