    Pre-refraction procedures

    14 videos — 14 extras

    Pre-refraction procedures, such as the measurement of vision or visual acuity and cover testing, are usually performed before the optimum refractive correction is determined. When patients habitually wear spectacles these procedures are conducted with the patient wearing those spectacles, if they...

    Refraction procedures

    6 videos — 6 extras

    Refraction procedures, such as retinoscopy and subjective refraction, are performed in order to determine the best refractive correction for each eye independently and, where appropriate, when the patient is binocular.

  • Post-refraction procedures

    Post-refraction procedures

    6 videos — 6 extras

    Post-refraction procedures, such as the ophthalmoscopy and Mallett unit testing, are usually performed after the optimum refractive correction has been determined. Some procedures, such as those assessing oculomotor balance, may be conducted pre- and post-refraction to determine if the new refrac...

  • Further Investigation Procedures

    16 videos — 16 extras

    These procedures go beyond the normal routine eye examination. They will flow from patient age, symptoms and/or signs, predisposing risk factors, or findings during the routine eye examination.
