Shamir Introduces Spark 4W Digital Electro-Optic Measurement System

February 08, 2024

Shamir has launched the Spark 4W, a digital electro-optic measurement system set to revolutionize eye care practices. Leveraging 3D stereo vision technology and artificial intelligence (AI), the Spark 4W aims to streamline and enhance the process of obtaining precise pupillary distance measurements for eye care professionals (ECPs) and their patients.

The Spark 4W represents an evolution from its predecessor, the Spark 4, boasting advanced features tailored to meet the demands of modern eye care settings. Operating on Wi-Fi and equipped with an integrated CPU, the standalone system offers unparalleled flexibility, allowing placement anywhere within the store.

A notable addition to the Spark 4W is the Shamir Spark Remote app, empowering ECPs to effortlessly capture pupillary distance measurements using any mobile device, such as smartphones, tablets, or laptops. This innovative solution streamlines the measurement process, enabling ECPs to complete additional parameters after the patient's visit, enhancing efficiency and convenience.

At the heart of the Spark 4W lies Shamir's state-of-the-art AI vision algorithm, meticulously engineered to detect and process 192 facial landmarks captured by its sophisticated camera system. Featuring six high-resolution 24-megapixel camera sensors, the Spark 4W delivers unparalleled image clarity. Two active near-infrared cameras provide an unobstructed view of the patient's pupils, while four additional color cameras ensure crisp imaging of eyewear, including sunglasses.

Zohar Katzman, Chief Technology Officer at Shamir, said: "Shamir Spark 4W provides patients with a touch-free experience that preserves their personal space while providing a highly professional examination. Beyond accurately filling the patient’s prescription, ECPs can optimize vision correction and, through 'As-Worn POV' technology, ensure the lens delivers optimal vision in the chosen frame. Its accuracy ensures that lenses are precisely fitted to each patient, minimizing non-adaptation and vision correction.”
