  • Causa
    If the device is not used or charged every five months, the coin cell battery that maintains the system clock may become depleted. once the coin cell battery has depleted, the system clock will reset to a date in the past (date of the last installed software release for example). this may cause the patient age to be calculated incorrectly. please note, the patient age is used by the spot vision screener 100 to determine referral criteria for certain screening conditions–specifically anisometropia, myopia, astigmatism and hyperopia. an incorrect patient age could result in an incorrect (either under or over) referral recommendation.
