Case #1
Eye Vision Inc.

1. Is Eye Vision’s arrangement with Holland Hospital within the scope of ASC 985-605, Software: Revenue Recognition?

Eye Vision’s arrangement with Holland Hospital is not within the scope of ASC 985-605. According to the case, “Eye Vision has never sold, nor does it offer to sell, the Clear View Laser without the embedded software.” In fact, the case makes it readily apparent that the Clear View Laser will not function without its hardware specific software.

ASU 2009-14 (Topic 985) states that, “if the software contained on the tangible product is essential to the tangible product’s functionality, the software is excluded from the scope of the software revenue guidance.” In its accounting guidance, the update states further that, “tangible products containing software components and non-software components that function together to deliver the tangible product’s essential functionality are no longer within the scope of the software revenue guidance in Subtopic 985-605. According to the case documentation, “ the software is necessary to perform the medical procedures for which the laser is intended.” This would imply that Eye Vision’s hardware/software product combination is not within the scope of ASC 985-605.

As additional evidence, the amendment offers several illustrations as guidance. One example states that a rebuttable presumption exists if sales of the tangible product (Eye Vision laser) without the software elements are infrequent. Another example states that the non-software elements (Eye Vision Laser) must contribute, in substance, to the overall product’s essential functionality. It seems obvious that both of these examples apply to the Eye Vision product. In other words, the hardware (Laser) will not function without software that tells it what to do. As a result, it would not make sense for the company to sell the…...

Eyes

...MAJOR PARTS OF THE EYE AND THEIR FUNCTIONS Iris * The colored part of the eye that surrounds the pupil. * It contracts and expands opening and closing the pupil, in response to the brightness of surrounding light. * This helps in dilating and making the pupil smaller. Pupil * The dark center of the eye, where light rays enter * The pupil either dilates or contracts with the help of the iris * This controls the amount of light entering the eye so that the retina and lens doesn't get damaged Sclera * Tough fibrous tissue, serves as a protective shield * Provides structure and safety for the inner workings of the eye, but is also flexible so that the eye can move to seek out objects as necessary. * Keeps the eyes shape and protects its delicate internal parts. Retina * Composed of nerve endings responsible for reception and transmission of light impulses. Lens * Transparent body located behind the iris and in front of the vitreous humor, refracts light rays to bring them into focus on the retina * The lens is a converging lens so that it can create a real image on the back wall of the eye.  * This allows us to focus on something close to us and far away. Cornea * The cornea is the outer covering of the eye. * This dome-shaped layer protects your eye from elements that could cause damage to the inner parts of the eye. * The cornea also allows the eye to properly focus on light more......

The Roles of Vision and Eye Movements in the Control of Activities of Daily Living

...The roles of vision and eye movements in the control of activities of daily living Michael Land, Neil Mennie, Jennifer Rusted; 1999 Experimental question: Are eye movements essentially random, or are they intimately related to the requirements of the motor task? Are fixations directed specifically to the places from which information is needed? Can can the eye-movement pattern thus be thought of as an integral part of the motor program itself Rationale: The strategy of the oculomotor system is to keep the center of gaze very close to the point at which the info is extracted (few letters/notes etc) Eye movements precede motor actions by a fraction of a sec (Ballard et al ‘92) Specific movement for choosing block, checking its color and its position Eye movements are very tightly coupled (time+space) with motor actions What makes this study special: Non-repetitive 40-50 acts to make a cup of tea each requires a new set of motor actions thus a new set of eye movements Are eyes required to produce an action or are they called up when specific info is required? are they proactive or reactive Natural setting (1st study ever to be conducted in every-day environment) Tea making is a well-known activity Does not require top-down feedback Once learned occurs “automatically” Methods: 3 subjects (male, 55; female, 28; male, 46) Small university kitchen counter on the left of the door sink straight in front fridge on the left seen the......

Eye Vision

...The eye is a complex optical and a very interesting sense organ. They are at work from the moment you wake up to the moment you close them to go to sleep! Eyes take in tons of information about the world around you; shapes, colors, movements, and more! Throughout reading chapter three, I have learned so much about the eye and how it works! There are three aspects to the perception of light. One of these aspects is brightness, which is determined on how high or low the wave actually is. When the wave is higher, the brighter the light becomes or appears to be. The length of the wave determines the color. The long wavelengths are originated at the red end of the visible spectrum. The shorter ones appear at the blue side. The last aspect to perception is saturation. This refers to the clarity of the color people observe. A less-saturated red may contain a mixture of wavelengths, but a highly saturated red will only include red wavelengths. The eye is like a camera. The external object is seen like the camera takes the picture of any object. Light enters through a small hole called the pupil. It changes size depending on the amount of light there is. Light waves are bent by the cornea and focus the image on the retina, which is like a camera film that consists of photoreceptor cells. Fovea is the central area of the retina, which is the greatest density of photoreceptors. The image formed on the retina is transmitted to the brain by the optic nerve. ...

Vision

...A Vision In “I heard a Fly buzz”; Emily Dickinson expresses to her readers about the emotional instability she feels while on her deathbed. She has written several poems about death, but this one differs from her other poems because it is told from her perspective, in accordance with her final moments. The poem creates several powerful images that arouse various possible explanations. It is easiest to understand how the poem (and her death) unfolds by reviewing the poem stanza by stanza. However, before examining the actual context, it is also important to look at the form of the poem, which also plays a puissant role. First of all, and most noticeable, is the continual use of dashes, which adds a lingering essence, as if foreshadowing the death. The dashes also signify power and unanswered questions about death and, perhaps, whether or not an afterlife exists. Another aspect of the form is how it is broken up into stanzas expressing differing ideas in each one. By braking up such ideas, it is easier to analyze the varying aspects of death that Ms. Dickinson believes are imperative when expressing what she is feeling prior to her death. The first stanza starts off repeating the title, “I heard a Fly buzz—when I died—“ (line 1). These words, though odd, are explained through the rest of the stanza, as the insignificance of the sound of a fly’s buzz is magnified, thus becoming extreme, compared to “The Stillness in the room” (2). This “Stillness” is......

...I am glad to say that some of the happiest moments in my life happened whilst I was in high school. I am forever grateful that I got to spend my formative years in a good school, surrounded by great people. I was usually the one who lead the Vision when our section was assigned the responsibility of leading the flag ceremony so this reflection sort of feels like I have come full circle, now I am being asked to reflect on it and see it through an alumna’s eyes. I do believe that the university certainly sits on a level above most, especially in the South. I, myself, have seen what it is like in college and compared myself to others who have come from other schools and I realized that we (other alumnae) were almost always prepared for what the professors gave us. I couldn’t believe other students never heard of bookkeeping, let alone knew how to at least make a basic baby thesis. That certainly shows the effectiveness of the high school’s academic endeavors and their success in instilling knowledge in its pupils. Going back to spending my formative years in the high school department of the university… I certainly learned a few things, not just academically, but outside of the classroom. I built friendships, gained responsibilities, made mistakes and won a few medals here and there… all of which helped me become a better, well-rounded person. Our teachers (especially advisers) became second parents. Without them, properly guiding over us in such crucial years, I have......

They Eye

...THE HUMAN EYE The eyeball is a sphere that lies buried in fat inside the orbit, or space in the skull. The adult human eye has a diameter of approximately 2.5 cm. Each eyeball has six ocular muscles attached to it. These muscles move the eye. The eyelids are like moveable curtains in front of the eye and consist of three layers; the skin, the muscles that open and close the lids, and the cunjunctiva which is a membrane that lines the eyelids and covers part of the eyeball. The eyelids serve as protection from injury, as well as, regulate the amount of light that enters the eyes. Blinking also wipes the surface of the eyes clean, and keeps a layer of a slightly salty fluid over the front of the eyes. This fluid, tears, is produced in lacrimal glands, or tear glands, which are located under the outer part of the upper eyelid and is collected and drained through tiny canals within the upper and lower lids near the nose. The tears eventually flow into the nasal passages and are swallowed. The eyelashes act as a protective screen that keeps particles out of the eye. The eyebrows and protruding edges of the facial bones form a protective wall around the eye. The surface of the eyeball consists of three basic layers; the sclera, the middle layer, and the retina. The sclera is the outer layer of the eyeball. At the front of the eye, the sclera becomes the clear and transparent cornea, through which light enters. The middle layer has three......
