Marked Lens
Prism measurements for a marked lens are obtained by measuring at the indicated
measurement point on the lens.
Unmarked Lens
Prism measurements in an unmarked lens are obtained by:
• First applying a non-permanent ink dot on the lens where the patient’s distance vision is focused (aligned with the center of the pupil). If an add segment is present,
a second dot may be applied to facilitate the add reading
• Prism (and Sphere, Cylinder, and Axis) measurements are obtained by measuring
at the ink dot on the lens.
Note: Measurements for prism are displayed in either the x-y (x, y displacement
in mm), or P-b (prism in diopters) as indicated in the SETUP mode (Prism
option).
Note: If a lens is not marked with the optical center, an inaccurate prism measurement may be displayed.

Obstruction Viewer
The AL200’s obstruction viewer is a real-time view of the camera image inside the
instrument. See picture below.
The obstruction viewer is particularly helpful in identifying obstructions that could affect the measurements of a lens, such as excessive dirt or markings on the lens.
The obstruction viewer also assists with viewing the rim of a lens while measuring
progressive lenses, as well as viewing the line on a bifocal lens.
The obstruction viewer is always on the screen and there is no need to adjust any
settings.

Portable and mobile RF communications
equipment should be no closer to any part
of the AL200 Lensometer including cables,
than the recommended separation distance
calculated from the equation applicable to
the frequency of the transmitter.
Recommended Separation Distance:
d=(3.5/V1)(Sqrt P)
d=(3.5/V1)(Sqrt P)

d=(7/E1)(Sqrt P)
800 MHz to 2.7 GHz
Where P is the max output power rating of
the transmitter in watts (W) according to the
transmitter manufacturer and d is the recommended separation distance in meters (m).
Field strengths from fixed RF transmitters,
as determined by an electromagnetic site
survey, should be less than the compliance
level in each frequency range.
Interference may occur in the vicinity
of equipment marked with the following
symbol.
Note 1: At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
Note 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption
and reflection from structures, objects and people.
* Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land
mobile radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically
with accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site
survey should be considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the ME Equipment or ME
System should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional measures many be necessary, such as re-orienting or relocating the ME Equipment or ME System.
* Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less then [V1] V/m.

should be missing if the box has never been opened.
3.
Claims must be filed within 30 days of purchase. CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES IN TRANSIT
Our shipping responsibility ceases with the safe delivery in good condition to the transportation company. Claims
for loss or damage in transit should be made promptly and directly to the transportation company.
If, upon delivery, the outside of the packing case shows evidence of rough handling or damage, the transportation company’s agent should be requested to make a “Received in Bad Order” notation on the delivery receipt. If
within 48 hours of delivery, concealed damage is noted upon unpacking the shipment and no exterior evidence of
rough handling is apparent, the transportation company should be requested to make out a “Bad Order” report.
This procedure is necessary in order for the dealer to maintain the right of recovery from the carrier.
