    Six meter long examine room

    Would it be correct to say that if my examine room is six meter long (20 feet) some patient could be prescribed 0.1600 D too positive?

    You could install mirrors to be exact.

    • Exam rooms.

    Exam rooms are the lifeblood of the practice. You should have at least two exam rooms for each doctor, but having three exam rooms for each doctor is ideal. This setup allows patients to remain in the room while the practitioner dilates them and fits them with contact lenses. This way, the doctor can go on to the next patient much more efficiently and patients are not shuttled in and out of exam rooms and waiting areas. Considering that the chart distance should be 20 feet, your exam room should be about 11 feet by nine feet. It’s a good idea to include sinks and computer storage when designing your desks. But, don’t overlook aesthetics when thinking practically—messy cables and CPUs should be well hidden from patient view.

    1/exam room length (M) = source of error.

    If you aim for under 0.25D (over 13ft, if I recall correctly) you're OK.

    But yeah, 1/6M = 0.166D overplus, but that's considered negligible. If you add 1/4D more minus to offset, then you're 0.12 overminused!

    (Has anyone noted that the drop down lists on EssiluxMedCrafters' ordering portal doesn't even allow 0.12D increments, anymore? But heck, they'll sell you digitally-surfaced with 0.05D accuracy all day long!)
