IOLMaster — Backup Data / Save Data
Create a Backup Copy
With the Backup function, you can save to a CD-RW the patient
data used for the optimization of IOL constants together with the
IOL data of all surgeons and corresponding lenses used for the
If you wish to export to a CD-RW, you must insert a formatted
CD-RW into the drive. The CD-RW must be formatted elsewhere
(e.g. office PC) in UDF format. Alternatively, use one of the
formatted CD-RWs as supplied. For exporting to an USB flash
drive, the latter should enable at least a transfer rate to USB-1.1.
A compressed and password-protected file is created in the CD-RW. Do
not attempt to read or manipulate this file using other programs.
The respective measurement readings are saved together with
the patient’s personal data, regardless of the set deletion date.
The backup process also includes the tables used for IOL constant
optimization (assignment of surgeon/lens/patient/eye/post-operative
data). Additionally, the IOL constants currently used for calculation
will be saved for all surgeons.
In this way, all critical patient and IOL data can be saved together
with the data required for lens optimization. Individual values for
axial length, corneal curvature / refractive power, anterior chamber
depth, WTW are not saved and may get lost, e.g. in the case of a
defect in the hard disk.
Follow this procedure to create a backup copy:
- In the User Database activate Administrator.
- Click the Backup command button to initiate the backup process.
- Insert a UDF-formatted CD-RW into the drive.
- Confirm with OK.
- It may be necessary to delete existing data on the CD-RW (confirm
with YES). Answering with NO will abort the backup
process. The data will now be copied to the CD-RW A progress bar informs
you of the status of the copying process.
- Upon success of data backup, message will be received.
