How do you adjust a manual lensometer for your eye?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
First I insert the frame in lensometer after I adjust the power reading mears to find exact powers of the lenses.
2.
I can adopt because I was taught by hand how to operate one.
3.
Adjust the height of the lensometer put the right lens on the thing adjust the hand wheel till it comes in clear.
4.
You must first neutralise the focimeter, adjusting the eyepiece so that the target is in focus. You can then begin to check or neutralise frames.
5.
I am hoping to be trained with that as iv not done it before.
6.
Steps in using the Manual Lensometer Adjust the eye piece until the target is clear Position the glasses with the bottom of the frame against the frame stage. Center the target (where the lines intersect) Focus the narrow lines (single lines) and read the power wheel. This gives the spherical power. Focus the wide lines (triple lines)and read the power wheel. Read the Axis wheel If the lens is in the incorrect cylinder you can either transpose the prescription or re-read the lenses and rotate, but rotate the lens 90 degrees. To get the prescription you will need to know the sphere, cylinder, and axis. Sphere = narrow lines Cylinder = wide lines – narrow lines Axis = read the axis wheel.
7.
I am familiar with this equipment but I have not used it or been trained to use it yet as I have not started the course and have not had a previous optical job.
8.
I have to make sure that the accuracy of the measurement. The eyepiece is adjusted to refractive zero.
9.
First of all, I turn the lensometer on, then turn the eyepiece anti-clockwise without looking through, then I keep looking through the eyepiece while turning it slowly clockwise until I can see mires inside sharply.
10.
Adjust the eyepiece so that the mires become clear.

6.
I was always, and still am, a very creative individual so at school my main interests were music and the arts. I wanted to be a musician and I attended a variety of orchestras, including the RCM junior department. I went on to study music at university but decided that whilst I loved music, I did not love the life of a musician and that it didn't really fit with what I wanted from a career. I am happy that I found optics, in its own unique way you can be creative, whether thats through creative thinking when approaching a complicated dispense, giving fashion advice or looking at ways to improve product displays within the practice.

3.
Ignorant people and not open minded.
4.
People that vaguely have an idea of what they want in mind and people that want 1 pair of glasses to do everything.
5.
I think the most difficult people to help are those that haven't accepted that they have to wear spectacles, are adamantly against them or have a real solid dislike. Sometimes, no matter how good your advice or service is, or how well you communicate the products and options available to someone you can't help them unless they are willing to open up themselves to the possibility of being helped. A lot of this can be to do with peoples willingness to trust you, if you have a personal connection with someone they are more likely to open up to you and accept help. I would try and break through that wall by asking the patient/customer about themselves, their work, hobbies, interests and take the focus off of spectacles for the moment. It shows that your not just trying to sell them something but that you are interested in them for who they are. By doing this I might learn something that I wouldn't have done about their visual needs that could further help them too.
6.
People who are negertive and love complaining.
7.
It's not hard that to help people with anything.
8.
Honestly, from the day one I chose optician career that I got to know dealing with different kinds of people is my routine job. If I have to pick a certain type of people I am less willing to work with or help, my answer probably goes with back-biters. As I believe everyone is unique and no one is perfect, we may not know what stories happened to them behind, however, what we can do is to let them know we really care about them, not to bad mouth. Being proactive and cooperative is vital for a productive and professional team as well as for premium customer service.
9.
Anyone can be difficult at anytime based on certain circumstances, but if having to narrow down specific individuals I'd have to infants and toddlers.
10.
Patients who do not respect the optomtrist or health care proffessionals advice of opinion.
