IOLMaster — Backup Data / Save Data

Create a Backup Copy IOLMaster Backup

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 IOL calculation.

IOLMaster Arizona NOTE: 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.

IOL Master warning WARNING: 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.

IOLMaster Arizona NOTE: 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.
