A typical mirrored exam lane is approximately 11'6" long by 9'6" wide, but a longer lane may not require mirrors.  The door should be opposite the instrument stand so that the wall in front of the patient is clear to allow for the installation of mirrors, a screen or a computer monitor.  A manual projector is usually mounted on the side wall next to the patient, above the writing surface to allow the examiner easy access to the projector controls.  An automatic projector is mounted on the back wall above and slightly to the side of the patient.

It is recommended that electrical outlets be located behind or close to the projector or wall-mounted computer monitor used with the acuity system.

When using projectors, mirrors may be utilized to increase the effective optical length of the room.  The projector shoots into one mirror and is reflected onto the screen on the back wall.  The patient looks into the other mirror on the wall opposite the chair, and sees the reflection of the projected image on the screen.

A computer monitor with the appropriate software may be mounted on the front wall in place of a screen, and no projector is necessary.  A computer monitor may also be mounted on the back wall in place of a screen, but in this case a patient mirror will be necessary on the front wall to allow the patient to see the monitor.

The diagram below illustrates these simple concepts:
