LANL employees: great news! Shamir age specific progressive lenses, Intelligence, will be available through Davis Vision with a copay.
Designed to Match Your Visual Age™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. 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™.
Analyzing 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.
What we learned… 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.
