  • Place the target lens with the concavity downward.
  • Lift and place down the lens retainer to retain the target lens with an accompanying hand.
  • ALIGNMENT OK will be displayed when the target image center is within the minimum circle (0.5∆ or smaller).
  • The ALIGNMENT OK mark is displayed when the target image center is reached. In the case of (white background) measurement with AUTO (black) R/L on (AUTO being inverted), “single lens” is memorized automatically. When BEEP is ON, the buzzer sounds.

Note: The target may move in a contrary manner immediately after the lens is placed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Changing measuring steps

Select on the menu screen [0.12] or [0.25]

2. When prism display is needed

Set as follows in the Menu screen:

[NO DISPLAY]…………. No display

[X-Y] ……………………….. Orthogonal coordinates display

[P-B] ……………………….. Polar coordinates display

[mm] ……………………….. Display by mm

3. When diopter transposition is required

Press TRANS button, and the astigmatism symbols will change

Press the button again, and the original date will reappear.

 

 

 

 

4. When storing

Press the MEMORY button. S (white background) will turn to (black background).

When R/L designation is required

Press the R/L button.

5. When printing

Press PRINT button.

  • Turn the lens table lever and bring it before you.
  • Gently, place the glass frame against the lens table for measurement.

Alignment:

Right and left………Place the frame against the lens table gently, and move the frame right and left finely.

Vertically…………….Move the table easily with the lens table lever.

  • When AUTO R/L is off (neither AUTO R/L (black background) nor AUTO R/L (white background) is displayed

Press the S – R button.

First, align the right lens and press the MEMORY button

  • When AUTO R/L ON-/R/L is set AUTO (black background) R/L is displayed):

*Measurement of single lens.

First, align the right lens to display “MARKING OK”. The result is automatically memorized, when the right lens hold.

Removing the right lens will automatically move to the L measurement.

Align & hold the left lens. The result is automatically memorized.

  • When AUTO R/L ON-S/R/L is set AUTO (black background) R/L is displayed):

*Measurement of single lens/framed lens

First, align the right lens to display “MARKING OK”. The result is automatically memorized, when the right lens hold.

Removing the right lens will automatically move to the L measurement.

Align & hold the left lens. The result is automatically memorized.

 Measuring A Hard Contact Lens
  • Replace the lens support with the contact lens support.

  • Select [LENS][HARD CONTACT] from the menu, and HARD. C will be displayed on the screen.

  • Carefully with a tweezer, place the target contact lens on the plate and fit it as is.

Measuring A Soft Contact Lens Without Astigmatism

  • Use the contact lens support for measuring as measuring a hard contact lens.
  • Select [LENS][SOFT CONTACT] from the menu, and SOFT CONTACT will appear on the screen.

  • Pinch the target soft contact lens with special tweezers to swish off moisture from the lens. Put the lens between paper to remove moisture from the surface.

Note: If you observe dews on the soft contact lens surface, measurement will not be possible because the luminous flux gets out of order.

  • If there are dews on the surface when the target contact lens is held to the light, put the lens in the special solution again, and repeat the above. If the lens is ready for measurement, put it on the contact lens holder and tell the shape (with tweezers) for alignment.

Note: Use the hard contact mode when measuring a soft contact lens with astigmatism.

  1. Set MENU/PROGRESSIVE/REVERSE
  2. Set the lens with the concave side down as usual, align the far vision power region, and press MEMORY button.
  3. Set the lens to the concave side up, align the far vision power region, and press MEMORY button.
  4. Leaving the lens with the concave side up, align the near vision power region and press the MEMORY button.

Using the cartridge, one light touch to the lens can put a clear ink mark.

Marking A Lens Without Astigmatism

  • Move the target lens until the centering mark coincides with the target image completely, and MARKING OK will appear.

  • Depress the marking lever to mark the lens.

Note: Ensure the ink cartridge do not interfere with the lens.

Marking A Lens With Astigmatism

  • Axis marking, maintaining the axis as prescribed – Align the target image with the center mark, approximating the axis angle mark to the angle as prescribed.

Note: Do it with AUTO R/L off.

  • Marking a cylindrical axis – Match the center mark with the target image, approximating the axis angle mark to 180 degrees.

Marking A Lens With Prism Power

  • When the prescription is displayed with X-Y (orthogonal coordinates:

Select [PRISM][X-Y] from the menu.

Carry out aligning according to the prism value as prescribed and as displayed on the screen.

I in prism value: Base IN

O in prism value: Base Out

U in prism value: Base Up

D in prism value: Base Down

  • When the prescription is displayed with P-B (polar coordinates)

Select [PRISM][P-B] from the menu.

Carry out aligning according to the prism value as prescribed and as displayed on the screen.

P: Prism value

B: Base orientation

 

 

 

Note: Take care that the polar coordinates are not the same as the value on the angular scale in the target image.

  • When the unit is mm.

Select [PRISM][mm] from the menu.

The up, down, left, and right arrow marks show the optical center reaches the center of measurement by moving the target lens in the arrow directions by the distance as displayed

Note: 0 will be displayed if the spherical power S is around 0.
