The lensmeter is the primary tool used by opticians in the verification of written eyeglass prescriptions. In this lesson we use the lensmeter to verify the lens sphere power, cylinder power, axis and patient pupillary distance in a pair of mounted single vision ophthalmic lenses. The video highlights the proper focus for lensmeter sphere lines, cylinder lines and axis position. Verifying single vision lenses is part of the daily routine of any optician. The lens verification process is also known as lens final inspection or glasses final inspection.
