Measurement & Documentation

  1. Can dark eyes be measured?
    The answer is: yes! Because all Plusoptix devices use the measurement principle of the transillumination test. In a transillumination test, a beam of infrared light is projected into the eye and reflected by the retina. Because the eyes are always visible in infrared light, skin or eye colors will not affect the measurement.

SD card

  1. What SD card can be used?
    We recommend a „SDHC“ card with 2 to 8 gigabyte storage. The card label must say "SDHC". If you are going to use ones from your camera, they must be formatted in your computer first. The proper format is "FAT 32" for the SD card size."FAT" stands for file allocation table.
