Medical - Medical: Instruments / refractometer
German term or phrase: Führungsnut dient der Vernebelung der Hyperopen zur Entspannung der Akkommodation
It's a refractometer used by an optometrist. I'd like help with the sentence beginning with "Die Führungsnut", please.

Zwei Führungsnuten dienen dem beidseitigen Einführen von Schiebern zur Linsen-aufnahme (11) im optischen Strahlengang. Sie sind definiert mit 'hinten' und 'vorne' aus Sicht des Anwenders.
Die hochwertigen, transparenten Kunstoffschieber können seitlich entnommen werden. Sie können Vorsatzgläser zum Zweck der Erweiterung des Messbereichs bis +/- 20 dpt aufnehmen. Ebenso können fest montierte Zylindergläser eingesetzt werden, welche die Vorgehensweise bei der Achsbestimmung erleichtern. Die Führungsnut 'vorne', dient der Vernebelung der Hyperopen zur Entspannung der Akkommodation.

Die beiden Objektive haben eine Brennweite von genau 85 mm, sie sind feinjustiert und gesichert.

Explanation:
The cannelure 'front' can be used for the blinding of hyperopic persons to relax the accomodating muscles.

A holder with a concave lense is introduced into the guideway labeled 'vorn', such that the person looking through that lense cannot focus. That helps to relax the eyes (as with looking far away into the sky), which is a necessary condition for some optical measurements.
