Dr. Young Answers Your Eye Care Questions
What is an autorefractor?
One of the components of the eye exam is to establish the manifest refraction. We get this by using an instrument call an auto-refractor. The autorefractor is a computer that uses light to bounce off of the back of the eye.
Light travels in through the cornea, the lens, the retina and bounces back out. This takes a measurement of the length of the eye from front to back, and measurements of the corneal curvatures, and give us the prescription you need.
Once we have this we will do the suggested refraction, where the doctor will ask you which picture looks better/clearer to you. We will do each eye separately, testing near as well as distance vision. This way we refine the prescription you will need to see the best you possibly can.
