comfortable operation
Flexible control for
varied needs
The tracking system of the TX-F
features an exceptionally wide
range of movement, so that the
examinee's pupil can be detected
right away. And the unit's trackball
and roller combination allows you
to perform manual alignment with
your fingertips alone.
Although Full Auto operation
gives you unprecedented ease, it
might not always be appropriate.
That's why the TX-F also includes
Auto and Manual measurement
modes for added flexibility.
Switching between modes
requires only a key press.
Improved care for your patients
The TX-F is extremely precise, and when it detects an instance of high pressure it will immediately display a warning
message and halt operation. You'll never miss an urgent case thanks to this effective warning system.

Selectable measuring modes
Visual confirmation of errors
Choose from either Full
Auto, Auto, or Manual to
match the situation. In
Full Auto mode, you
can set the TX-F to take
1 or 3 measurements
for each eye, and it will
perform alignment and
measurement on both eyes after you press the Start
button. Printout or data transfer can be automatic. In
Auto mode, alignment and measurement are
automatic, with only one measurement taken at a time.
And in Manual mode, you have full control over
alignment and focusing using the trackball and roller.
Guides are marked on the central alignment ring to
make it as easy as possible to align the two bright dots
reflecting on the patient's cornea.
Normally, if a measurement
error occurs, you can’t be
completely sure of its
cause. Not so with the TX-F.
When a reading can't be
made, the TX-F will show
you a snapshot of the
examinee's eye, giving you the information you need to
correct things. At a glance, you'll know whether it was
an eyelid, eyelash, or the eye being out of position that
caused the error. A short message will tell you what
action to take, such as adjusting the chin rest or limiter.
press the Start button and the exam is over in

focusing and measurement for one eye, and
IOP warning display
then moves to the other eye in one continuous
series of operations. All you have to do is wait
for the printout. The entire process is
remarkably quick, and the unit's threedimensional tracking system ensures that your
readings are extremely reliable. With the
addition of the TX-F to our lineup of Full Auto
ophthalmic instruments, Canon now offers the
premier non-contact tonometer for raising eye
exam efficiency.
The TX-F helps you diagnose ocular hypertension
without delay by displaying a warning message
whenever high pressure is detected. You can enter any
threshold value on the unit's settings screen, and this
will activate the TX-F's warning system for that value.
When running the TX-F in Full Auto mode, operation will
also be halted when the threshold is exceeded.
Display by order or reliability
During
measurement,
results are displayed near
the bottom of the monitor.
And, after the exam, you
can access a display screen
that lists IOP measurements
stored in memory. Internal
memory provide storage of up to 10 measurements for
each eye, and these figures can be listed either in the
order they were taken or by reliability.
Centralized controls and more
Extremely soft air puff
For most patients, the only thing remarkable—and
worrisome—about tonometry is the air puff. Which is
why it's important to ensure
that this puff is as comfortable
for them as can be. The TX-F
employs one of the most
delicate air puffs of any noncontact tonometer.
Alongside the trackball and
roller, the TX-F features a
control panel that puts keys for
all major functions in one area.
So whether you're switching the
measurement mode or just want to adjust the chin rest,
you can get anything done with maximum ease. As an
added advantage, the design of the TX-F offers easy
access to the examinee's eye if necessary.
This key lets you switch from the eye monitor to the numerical
list display, and back. Settings screens can also be accessed.
Switch the active fixation lamp from an internal one to an
external one when the examinee needs it.
To prevent the air nozzle from accidentally hitting the examinee,
the limiter puts a brake on how far forward the measurement
head can move.
With a long press, this key gives a demonstration of the air puff
to put your examinee at ease. With a short press, it erases the
current examinee's data from the screen, allowing you to skip
the printing step and move on to the next person.
In Full Auto mode, you can direct the TX-F to take 1 or 3
measurements for each eye.
Shift the measurement mode from Full Auto to Auto to Manual.
The active mode is displayed on the top part of the monitor.
When using the TX-F in Auto or Manual mode, press the R/L key
to move the measurement head from one eye to the next.
Guide the motorized chin rest up and down until the examinee's
eyes are aligned to the right position, which is indicated by a
height adjustment mark on the forehead rest.
Convenient in every way
Benefits have been built into virtually every part of the
TX-F. When it’s not in operation for 3 minutes, for
example, the power-saving mode automatically kicks
in. Printing is fast, and an RS232C interface is
included for data transfer to an external device. In
addition, since the power cord connects to the bottom
of the unit, the TX-F contributes to a tidy setup as well.
