Safety Information ISO15004 This report provides information about the hazard to the examinee’s eyes in compliance with ISO15004 (1997). 1. The spectral characteristics of radiant flux exiting from this instrument are as follows: Spectral irradiance (relative) Refractometry IRED Outer eye illumination IRED Eye fixation target illumination LED Irradiance (relative)
Safety Information If the value of radiance was 40 [mW/cm2/sr], 6 minutes would be needed to reach the rec- ommended limit. That is, the retinal exposure dose for a photochemical hazard is a product of the radiance and the exposure time. Since La and Lb of this instrument are extremely low, the risk of the photochemical hazard is also very low.
Safety Information General Safety Information Follow the safety instructions in this manual and all warnings and cautions printed on the warning labels. Ignoring such cautions or warnings while handling the product may result in injury or accident. Be sure to read and fully understand the manual before using this product.

1. Overview The Canon Full Auto Ref R-F10 is for performing refractometry. The main feature of the R-F10 is that by just displaying the examinee’s eye somewhere on the monitor and pressing the START switch, the instrument then automatically performs a precise alignment and measurement by a three-dimensional tracking system.
Otherwise, connection failure may occur. (4) When the instrument is going to be transported, it must be protected against vibration and shocks. Contact Canon representative or distributor for advice on the procedure for packing it. (5) Do not lay the instrument on its side when the power is turned ON. Otherwise, the instrument will malfunction.
