An auto refreactometer or digital autorefractor is a computer-controlled machine used during an eye examination to provide an objective measurement of a person’s refractive error and prescription for glasses or contact lenses. it works by measuring how light is changed as it enters a person’s eye.
This is an alternative method of finding out the refraction error in contrast to the conventional refractive technique. The procedure is called refractometry or optometry. The Auto Refractometer can be of various types depending on the underlying principle. The various indications of performing Auto Refractometer are myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia, spectacle prescription, and contact lens prescription, which serve as a starting point for subjective refraction for ophthalmologists and optometrists in pediatric refraction and people with a disability requiring spectacles. This activity covers the various commercially available subjective and objective Auto Refractometer and provides information for healthcare providers who work with ocular disorders that Auto Refractometer can address.
An auto refractometer is a device that measures the refractive error and prescription of a person’s eyes by using a beam of light. It is used during eye examinations to provide an objective and accurate assessment of the person’s vision. It can also help to detect other eye problems such as astigmatism, myopia, hyperopia, and presbyopia.
An auto refractometer has several applications in different settings and situations. Some of the possible applications are:
An auto refractometer is a simple-to-use, portable, and reliable device that can improve the eye health and vision of many people around the world
