The Marco LM – 101
The LM – 101 was the first manual lens meter to offer ambidextrous power measuring knobs, allowing both right and left-handed people to easily use this instrument.
The most recent version of the manual LM – 101 features both AC and battery power for convenience of portability and flexibility. The pens used with this lensometer are self-inking cartridges which have replaced the “old style” ink pad. The incandescent bulb has also been replaced with brighter and longer lasting LEDs.
Manual Lensometers allow for a subjective interpretation of what you see. The power drum is adjusted for power readings. The axis wheel is adjusted for alignment and the eyepiece is adjusted for the individual user. With the power drum of a manual lensometer you are either on a specific diopter line or you are somewhere in between. For example, if you are not directly on a 1/8 or ¼ diapter line that is where a subjective call is made on the power.
The manual lensometer will continue to be the mainstay of the ophthalmic industry for years to come.
