How to Focus PVS-7 goggles

1. Set Up

Install batteries in PVS-7. Attach and adjust Head Mount or Helmet Mount. Attach PVS-7.

Stand behind 20-foot line.

Turn lights OFF. Turn PVS-7 ON. Turn IR illuminator ON.

2. Make the (4) PVS-7 goggle adjustments

Adjust Interpupilary Distance. Slide eyepieces closer or farther apart so that each eye views each lens as a perfect circle.

Adjust Eye Relief. On the head mount and the helmet mount, adjust PVS-7 as close to the eyes as is comfortable to acquire maximum field of view. Lens caps should cover eyes.

Adjust Objective Lens. Turn Objective Lens fully counterclockwise. Rotate Objective Lens clockwise until both vertical and horizontal charts are clearly in focus.

Adjust each Diopter Ring. Turn both Diopter Rings fully counterclockwise. Close right eye. Turn left Diopter Ring clockwise until image first becomes clear. Do not turn past this point. Repeat this for right eyepiece. Re-adjust Objective Lens.

3. Afterwards, when re-focusing for distance, adjust Objective Lens ONLY. Do NOT re-adjust Diopter Rings.
