The HARK 599 offers two modes of refraction, auto-capture and manual-capture; the machine will default to ‘auto-capture’. Once the patient is properly adjusted, use the joystick and the computerized camera display interface, to locate the patient’s cornea. Attempt to place the six white dots onto the patient’s pupil. These white dots are infrared lights which are used by the instrument to focus the ideal position on the patient’s cornea.
