CenterVue
Interface
Overview
•
CenterVue Interface Overview, 1
•
Setting Up the CenterVue DRS Interface, 1
•
Capturing Images with CenterVue DRS, 2
•
Reviewing CenterVue DRS Images, 5
ExamWRITER interfaces with the CenterVue DRS software before the capture
process when patient information is transferred from ExamWRITER into
CenterVue DRS to create or update retinal images and during the review process
when the newly created or existing CenterVue retinal images are available for
on-screen review.
You do not need to install any CenterVue software on the computer on which you
are using ExamWRITER. The CenterVue equipment interface saves equipment
data to the CenterVue database and ExamWRITER reads that database through
a wireless or wired network connection. The equipment data can be shared and
accessed at multiple computers, as long as the computers are networked
properly. The CenterVue interface uses a wireless router or wired Ethernet cable
to connect to the computer.
NOTES
• Back up your CenterVue DRS data. Contact CenterVue for
recommended backup procedures.
• If you began using CenterVue DRS before ExamWRITER, your
CenterVue Patient IDs will be different than your ExamWRITER
patient numbers; therefore, your CenterVue and ExamWRITER
patients will not be linked to each other. To automatically link your
CenterVue and ExamWRITER patients, run the
ExamWRITER/CenterVue Patient Synchronization Utility. To open
this utility and view instructions on how to use the utility, go to
www.officemate.net/omkb/Article.aspx?id=30730.

ExamWRITER receives data reports from the Humphrey Field Analyzer HFA II-i
Series equipment and links the reports to the ExamWRITER exam record.
ExamWRITER does not send clinical data to the Humphrey equipment.
The Humphrey equipment interface saves data reports to the DATA folder on the
ExamWRITER server, which then can be accessed by all computers networked to
look at that folder. The data reports can be shared and accessed at multiple
computers, as long as the computers are networked properly and the folder is
properly mapped and shared. The Humphrey interface uses a mapped network
drive to connect to the computer or Terminal Server. Ensure that you have
purchased the networking license from Carl Zeiss Meditech, Inc., so that you can
properly network your Humphrey Field Analyzer and interface with ExamWRITER.
NOTE
Setting Up the
Humphrey
Interface
Even if you are familiar with using the Humphrey equipment, you will
still need to follow the instructions in “Using the Humphrey Interface”
on page 40 so that you correctly recall patient data and transfer the
tests.
Before you begin using the Humphrey equipment interface, set up the Humphrey
interface in ExamWRITER.
1. On the ExamWRITER main window, click Tools, select Equipment
Integration Setup, and select Equipment Interface Setup.
The Setup ExamWRITER Equipment Interfaces window opens.
2. Select the Write captured equipment data to a file check box if you want
ExamWRITER to record data received from the Humphrey equipment in a

AFC-230/AFC-210 Non-Mydriatic Autofocus Fundus Camera
•
AFC-330 Non-Mydriatic Auto Fundus Camera
•
F-10 Opthalmoscope
Contact your Marco representative to set up the camera equipment and contact
your NIDEK representative to set up the NAVIS-EX software.
ExamWRITER interfaces with the NIDEK NAVIS-EX software before the capture
process when patient information is transferred from ExamWRITER into NIDEK
NAVIS-EX Capture to create or update patient information and retinal images and
during the review process when the newly created or existing NIDEK NAVIS-EX
patient information and retinal images are available for review.
ExamWRITER and NAVIS-EX communicate with each other via a command line
interface located at C:\NIDEK\EMR\Client\MiddlewareCLI.exe.
The NIDEK NAVIS-EX equipment interface saves equipment data to the NIDEK
NAVIS-EX database and ExamWRITER reads that database through a mapped
drive. The equipment data can be shared and accessed at multiple computers,
as long as the computers are networked properly and the databases are properly
mapped and shared. The NIDEK NAVIS-EX interface uses a serial RS-232 cable
or null modem to connect to the computer. The NIDEK NAVIS-EX interface cannot
connect to a Terminal Server.

ExamWRITER interfaces with the Optos software before the capture process
when patient information is transferred from ExamWRITER into Optos Capture to
create or update retinal images and during the review process when the newly
created or existing Optos retinal images are available for on-screen review.
You must install ExamWRITER and the Optos Capture and Optos Review
applications on the computer to which the Optos equipment is connected; then
you can install the Optos Capture and Optos Review applications on the server on
which ExamWRITER is installed. Contact Optos at 800.854.3039 to determine if
the Optos Capture and Optos Review applications will run on an OS server and if
any additional licensing needs to be purchased when using it with Terminal
Server. Both applications can be used on the same workstation or on two
separate workstations.
The Optos equipment interface saves equipment data to the Optos database and
ExamWRITER reads that database through a mapped drive. The equipment data
can be shared and accessed at multiple computers, as long as the computers are
networked properly and the databases are properly mapped and shared. The
Optos equipment interface uses a serial RS-232 cable or null modem to connect

ExamWRITER interfaces with all Reichert equipment by reading data or images
obtained from the Reichert equipment and populating the patient’s exam with that
data or making the images available for on-screen review.
The Reichert Auto Phoropter RS and Auto Phoropter Visutron900 are the only
Reichert devices that send data to and receive data from ExamWRITER.
ExamWRITER first exports auto refraction or presenting spectacle data to the
Auto Phoropter RS or Auto Phoropter Visutron900. The Auto Phoropter RS or Auto
Phoropter Visutron900 then exports manifest Rx data to ExamWRITER.
The Reichert equipment interface saves equipment data to the ExamWRITER
database, which then can be accessed by all computers networked to look at that
database. The equipment data can be shared and accessed at multiple
computers, as long as the computers are networked properly and the databases
are properly mapped and shared. The Reichert interface uses a serial RS-232
cable or null modem to connect to the computer or Terminal Server. The Reichert
equipment interface can use multiple serial ports per PC.

Overview
•
ReSeeVit Interface Overview, 127
•
Setting Up the ReSeeVit Interface, 128
•
Using ReSeeVit Capture, 130
ExamWRITER interfaces with the Veatch ReSeeVit software before the capture
process when patient information is transferred from ExamWRITER into the
ReSeeVit software to create or update retinal images and during the review
process when the newly created or existing ReSeeVit retinal images are available
for on-screen review.
The ReSeeVit equipment interface saves equipment data to the ReSeeVit
database and ExamWRITER reads that database through a mapped drive. The
equipment data can be shared and accessed at multiple computers, as long as
the computers are networked properly and the databases are properly mapped
and shared. The ReSeeVit interface uses a serial RS-232 cable or null modem to
connect to the computer or Terminal Server. The ReSeeVit interface can only use
one camera per Terminal Server.
NOTES
• ReSeeVit equipment cannot be interfaced with the multilocation
version of ExamWRITER.
• You must install ExamWRITER and the ReSeeVit software on the
computer to which the ReSeeVit equipment is connected; then
you can install the ReSeeVit software on the server on which
ExamWRITER is installed. Contact Veatch Ophthalmic
Instruments to determine if the ReSeeVit software will run on an
OS server and if any additional licensing needs to be purchased
when using it with Terminal Server.
• Back up your ReSeeVit data! Contact Veatch Ophthalmic
Instruments for recommended backup procedures or visit the
Veatch Web site at http://www.veatchinstruments.com.

equipment and displays the data on the ExamWRITER chart window.
ExamWRITER does not send data to the Topcon equipment.
NOTE
The KR-8000, KR-8900, KR-8000PA, and KR-1
Autorefractor/Keratometer only import autorefraction and
keratometry data, and not topography images, into ExamWRITER.
The Topcon equipment interface saves equipment data to the ExamWRITER
database, which then can be accessed by all computers networked to look at that
database. The equipment data can be shared and accessed at multiple
computers, as long as the computers are networked properly and the databases
are properly mapped and shared. The Topcon interface uses a serial RS-232
cable or null modem to connect to the computer or Terminal Server. The Topcon

NOTE
®
If you are using a digital refraction system with the KR-8000PA or
KR-7000P Autorefractor/Keratometer, it cannot be connected to the
computer that is running the ExamWRITER Topcon equipment
interface; instead, the KR-8000PA and KR-7000P
Autorefractor/Keratometer must be connected to a separate
