Why am I not getting ‘light’ to my instrument?

Both left and right eye buttons (at least one) must be illuminated on the control panel for the instrument to receive light.

Why are some of my slides up side down?

Test slides will appear upside-down or reversed when looking at a near point slide at a far point setting (and vise versa).

What lighting condition is acceptable for the testing room?

Any lighting condition is acceptable for day testing.  Night testing should be administered in a dimly lit room.

How do you change the light bulbs in the vision tester?

There are no light bulbs in the vision tester.  The unit is run solely on LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes).
