the new refraction.

Check list

Before you start working with the PASKAL 3D experience refraction you should take the following into account:

Software

Software

You have received the user identification and password from IPRO

You automatically receive the user identification and password from IPRO.

You have installed the IPRO PASKAL 3D software solution to your iPad via the Apple App Store

The software solution is installed in two steps. In the first step, the IPRO PASKAL 3D experience refraction is installed on the iPad. It already includes all configuration possibilities and an initial sight test. This allows the 3D functionality to be tested on site in the refraction room. In the second step, all sight tests and test lines that your customer will see in the refraction are activated. As with all iPad apps, the IPRO PASKAL 3D experience refraction must be downloaded from the Apple App Store. By acquiring the IPRO PASKAL 3D experience refraction, you receive a voucher for the IPRO PASKAL 3D app from the App Store and the activation code for the sight tests and the full range of functions of the IPRO PASKAL 3D experience refraction.

Hardware

Hardware

The iPad Air or newer or iPad Mini 3 is available

The following prerequisites should be fulfilled:

  • iPad Air or newer or iPad Mini 3 (with then limited readability)

  • Apple iPhone is not suitable

  • Tablets with other operating systems, smartphones or eBooks are also not suitable

The iPad has WLAN and internet access in the refraction room

A high-performance WLAN must be available in your refraction room. The free SPEEDSPOT app is available for testing in the App Store for all Apple devices. Please ensure a sufficiently capable WLAN. In our experience, a modern, fast WLAN (IEEE 802.11n or IEEE 802.11ac) is sufficient for this. However, the speed is also dependent on how many end devices are using the WLAN.

The Apple TV transmission box is available

The Apple TV is a small box. We recommend you attach the box to the screen using the HDMI cable in such a way that it is visible from the front. It does not have its own wall mounting. The box dangles from the cable.

HDMI cable is available

The standard HDMI cable is one metre long. Standard power cables are 1.5 m long.

3D monitor (passive, circular polarising) is available

The following prerequisites should be fulfilled:

  • Passive 3D: With passive 3D technology, the 3D effect is achieved with line by line circular polarisation. Only this is supported by the IPRO PasKal3D experience refraction.

  • HDMI input

  • Screen size 32" or larger (depending on distance), 1920 x 1080 resolution

  • Screen size, refraction distance and, if necessary, mirror size must align to one another.

Wall mounting of the 3D monitor is available and mounted to the wall

A so-called VESA support is necessary for mounting, making it possible to point the screen in all directions (gimbal mounting). The support is included in the IPRO TV offer. The wall must be sufficiently stable, of course. The VESA adapter fitting should be at roughly the height of the eyes of the subject.

Important user note: we recommend the existing refraction unit is not removed in order to be able to continue to refract in the case of a network failure, for example.

A stand for the 3D monitor is available (as an alternative to wall mounting)

If you work with mirror reversing in the refraction: Mirror is available

The recommended distance between the 3D monitor and the subject is 4 to 6 metres (with 32"). Mirror: The well-known refraction device manufacturers offer mirrors with which the recommended distance can be reached even in rooms that are not so long. The mirror must be selected in such a way that its width is greater than half the width of the monitor. A 32" screen in a 16:9 format (width to height) has a width of 70 cm. Therefore, the mirror should be 35 cm wide. In the practical test it has been proven that a 30 x 30 cm mirror works well if the monitor is positioned more than half a metre behind the head of the subject.

Polarisation filters

Polarisation filters

Circular polarising filters are required for the IPRO PASKAL 3D experience refraction.

Polarisation filter for the measuring lenses is available

  • Topcon and Essilor have circular polarising filters for their own measuring lenses.

  • INAMI and UB4 measuring lenses: Oculus has measuring lenses on offer.

Polarisation filters for the phoropter are available and assembled

Circular polarising filters are required for the IPRO PASKAL 3D experience refraction. We have information on the following manufacturers/models:

  • Huvitz phoropter: can be converted to circular polarising filters.

  • AO phoropter: can be converted to circular polarising filters.

  • Topcon CV 5000 phoropter: The CV 5000XP, CV 5000PRO, CV 5000S series are already equipped with circular polarising filters. With the CV 5000 (without additional designation) linear polarising filters are fitted, which can be converted to circular polarisation. If it is indicated in the order that PasKal is being used, the right filters are fitted right away. Older models such as the CV 3000 cannot be converted.

  • Reichert-Schwind-Visusstar: is an AO type and is converted by MailShop with circular polarising filters

  • Bon Optik: developing an add-on for the Bon DR 900.

  • Optik Service Nord (Mr Münzinger) can convert various phoropters upon request.

Installation and software training

Installation and software training

Of course, the following point is to be considered optional.

Support and help by your IPRO advisor

The IPRO advisor takes on the design and preparation of the WLAN, the installation of the IPRO PASKAL 3D experience refraction software on your Apple iPad and the setup of the connection with the 3D monitor. They show you how to use the software and monitor and help you with adjustment to on-site circumstances (distance, screen size, tilted mirror etc.). Please understand that fitting work such as the attachment of mirrors and monitors or cabling cannot be offered by IPRO.
