The Marco 101 has been around for what feels like forever and despite recent changes to bulb technology and filters, the 101 operates in the same manner it has since its inception. We’re not sure if that even matters, as the way we verify lenses hasn’t changed a whole lot either. Sure, LED illumination reduces heat and presents a brighter, clearer image that will ‘never’ burn out– however it is not a guarantee of innovation throughout the rest of the instrument. The LM-101 is still quite heavy, bulky, and unattractive. Perhaps it shouldn’t matter and perhaps you shouldn’t care that it is such. Truth be told any manual lensometer (did we mention this is the original?) is not being purchased to be shown-off as some desk ornament, it’s meant to sit in some dirty laboratory far from the customer– beaten on and abused for 20 years until the power supply dies and you’re forced to buy a new one. You’ll be happy to know however that the 101 will be more than happy to sweat it out alongside you and the backsplash from the edger waste bucket. PS: Have backups to replace the halogen bulb once or twice a year.


OUR TAKE: Your original ‘tough-as-nails‘ manual lensometer to last you twenty+ years.

The Marco 101 Manual Lensmeter, like all Marco manual lensmeters, is well suited for measuring soft and hard contact lenses as well as conventional spectacle lenses. The Marco 101 Lensmeter is a compact deluxe model with a full 90-degree inclination, which facilitates the measurement of contact lenses when used in the vertical position. Standard equipment on the Marco 101 Lensmeter includes such deluxe features as a prism compensator, external power and axis readings, and an American-style crossline target.

  • Hard wired (110v) power supply
  • Full 90-degree inclination
  • Prism compensation
  • External power and axis readings
  • American-style cross-line target
  • Acceptable for laboratory use
  • Incomparable construction
  • Discriminating optics
  • Will read hard or soft contact lenses and conventional lenses from 24mm through 90mm in diameter

The Marco LM-101 is quite heavy for its size, weighing in at approximately 14lbs and taking up nearly 17.7″ of table length.

This particular LM-101 is the original halogen illumination type.
