A lensmeter or lensometer or focimeter or vertometer (manual or automated) is a microscope. The manual lensometer is defined as an ophthalmic instrument that is mainly used by optometrists or opticians to measure the back-vertex (or front-vertex) power of the eyeglasses and contact lenses. A focimeter (Figure 1) is a device used to determine the power of a lens. It is also known variously as a lensometer or vertometer. It can determine the spherical power, cylindrical power, axis, prism and the position of the optical centre of a lens.
