The Model 5010 and 5015 guides you with a green centering ring as you use the joystick to align the optics head.

• Rotating the joystick right or left raises and lowers the optics head.
• Pushing the joystick left or right moves the optics head left or right.
• Pulling or pushing the joystick moves the optics head forward and backward.

Instruct the patient to look at the basket of the hot air balloon. Locate the right eye and use the joystick to center the target within the patient’s pupil. Move in or out following the prompt cue at the top of the display until “Focused” prompt appears. Then move (rotate) the joystick up and down, as well as right and left in order to center the target within the patient’s pupil.

At this point, the target will turn green and automatically acquire a reading (Auto mode). If in Manual Mode, there will be a “Press Joystick” prompt on the screen.

Aligning the eye, Model 5010 and 5015

Automatic or Manual Mode

In the automatic mode, the Acuitus 5010/5015 will refract the eye. After measurement, the result is displayed. (See fig. page 10.) If you are using the manual mode, the Acuitus 5010/5015 will begin to take multiple refractive measurements as soon as the eye is aligned. Press the button on the top of the joystick when prompted in order to freeze the results and display them on the screen.

Clearing Results to Re-refract

The last refraction for one or both eyes remains in the instrument’s memory until another refraction is initiated or the five-minute time-out limit is passed. There are two ways to clear refraction data from the display immediately if you would like to re-refract an eye.

1. Reposition the optics head. If you have refracted both eyes, moving the optics head back to the first eye will clear data for that eye and allow you to take another measurement. Results for the second eye will remain on the display unless the optics head is moved to that eye a second time.

2. Print results. Pressing the Print button prints out the examination results, clears the patient’s data from the refractor, and prepares the instrument for the next patient.

Turning off the power also erases all stored refraction data.

 

The calibration on the Humphrey Acuitus is very stable. However, calibration can be affected if the instrument is moved with the optics head unlocked, or if it is bumped or tipped. It is a good idea to check calibration once a week and after every time the instrument is moved.

Your Acuitus Accessory Kit includes a “test eye” piece that simulates a human eye with known measurements. To use this test eye piece to check the your refractor’s calibration:

1. Note the reference values marked on the test eye piece.

2. Attach the test eye assembly to the forehead rest by inserting the tabs into the slots on the forehead rest and pushing down.

3. Align the test eye in the monitor by moving the joystick as you do for a refraction.

4. Press the button on the top of the joystick to take a measurement if you are using manual mode. In automatic mode, the Acuitus will measure the test eye and display the results as soon as the test eye is aligned.

5. Check to make sure that the measured values correspond with those marked on the test eye piece.

 Before you use the Acuitus for the first time, it is necessary to select the software settings you want to use for refraction, the printouts, and other features of the refractor.

Turn on the refractor and press the Help/Setup button that is just to the right of the screen. The help screen will appear.
