Spark Mi Up Ensures Comfort and Relaxed Vision

Experience vision through a multifocal you never thought possible in a pair of lenses. Many customers of ours describe them as “HD eyeglasses”. Others have said that they are a multifocal that feels like a single vision lens. Multifocal lenses are truly the leader in optics.

The Spark Mi Up measuring device by Shamir is the safe way to accurate measurements. This revolutionary new measuring device gives you great comfort and a hi-tech experience while saving you time and guaranteeing high precision measurement accuracy. Carytown Optical uses the Spark Mi Up measuring device by Shamir because:

  • Accurate measurements in 90 seconds or less.
  • Adjustable arm for maximum patient comfort.
  • Calculates all frame measurements.
  • Works with all lenses, including tinted lenses.

The Spark Mi Up measuring device by Shamir allows for precise mathematical calculations of the prescription based on the frame and its fit and placement on your face. Inaccurate measurements can cause a person not being able to comfortably wear their progressive multifocal lenses. We are really excited to have this technology available to the customers of Carytown Optical.
