To assess acuity performance at various levels of illuminance and color temperature, switch on the LuxIQ and place it over reading material, such as eye charts or newspapers. In White Mode, examine the patient with intense, cool to warm light.
- Select intensity using Lux slider, and keep constant.
- Adjust color temperature at selected intensity using Temperature slider.
- Record the preferred intensity (lux) and color temperature (°K).
LightChooser™ web app for LuxIQ™
Jasper Ridge encourages the use of LightChooser (www.lightchooser.com) in tandem with the LuxIQ. Enter the preferred Lux and Temperature values to recommend lamps and bulbs that best match the patient’s preference. LightChooser’s database includes Stella, Bright Reach, Verilux, Ott, and other lamps and bulbs available in the US, Canada, and Europe.
A convenient alternative to the web app is the Light Bulb Calculator. It uses the Lux value and working distance to quickly determine the optimal lumen bulb for each patient.
The LuxIQ and the LightChooser web app do not collect or save patient information, nor is the information visible to Jasper Ridge. All patient information is confidential.
