Shamir Urban™

You & the City
Lens Family: Life Improvement Lenses

city cover


The new Urban lens from Shamir is a customized lens that combines easy adaptation and smooth transition between all zones of the lens. Urban is well suited for new presbyopes and also those with add up to +3.50.


Addressing the unique requirements of Urban Living


Shamir’s extensive testing shows that new and active presbyopes prefer an extremely soft design with little “swim” effect over a harder design with a large reading area. Shamir Urban meets this challenge.


Intellicorridor™ Technology

A unique power profile for clearer vision
This technology controls the power profile along the eye’s visual path through the progressive lens zones, and allows Shamir lens designers to give variable emphasis to the power for every given point on the lens. Lenses can now be designed to optimally suit a particular activity or visual need. That’s what makes Shamir Urban the ideal lens for the quickly alternating near and mid-range vision, so prevalent in city life
