Embrace a Brighter View with Our Precise and Professional Refraction Exam

Refraction Exam Overview

At amaEyes, our refraction exam is a critical component of our comprehensive eye care services, designed to determine the precise prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses. This exam is pivotal in understanding how your eyes focus on images, thereby identifying whether you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. However, the essence of the exam extends beyond just prescription determination.

Our eyes, remarkable as they are, rely on this bending of light to focus on objects. By accurately measuring the refraction of light within your eyes, our skilled optometrists are able to tailor the ideal lens prescription to correct any vision abnormalities you may have. At amaEyes, we ensure that each refraction exam is conducted with precision and care, contributing to your overall visual health and clarity.

Our Refraction Exam Process

From the initial preparations to the examination, we’re here to guide you every step of the way, ensuring clarity, comfort, and professionalism.

Preparing for the Exam

At amaEyes, we believe in making your experience as smooth and stress-free as possible, especially when you’re coming in for a procedure like the refraction exam. To help you prepare, here is guide for your visit:

  • Personal Records: Bring any previous prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. If this isn’t your first refraction exam, previous records can be beneficial.
  • Medical History: While primarily an optical test, having a brief of your medical history, primarily related to eye health, will be helpful.
  • Avoid Eye Strain: If possible, avoid engaging in visually strenuous activities right before the exam.

What Happens During the Refraction Exam?

We understand that knowing what to expect can make your refraction exam experience more comfortable. Here’s a detailed overview of each step in the process:

  1. Initial Assessment: Our optometrists will discuss your vision concerns and any symptoms you might be experiencing.
  2. Vision Test: We’ll conduct a standard vision test where you’ll read from an eye chart. This test assesses your vision clarity at different distances.
  3. The Phoropter: We’ll use a phoropter, a device equipped with various lenses, to fine-tune your prescription. As different lenses are rotated in front of your eyes, we’ll ask you to identify which ones make the text clearer for you.
  4. Retinoscope or Autorefractor: Depending on your individual needs, we may use a retinoscope to observe the reflection off your retina, or an autorefractor to automatically measure your refractive error.
  5. Final Discussion:After completing the tests, our optometrist will sit down with you to discuss the results. We’ll offer insights into your eye health and advise if corrective lenses are needed.

Detecting Optical Issues

Not all vision problems are as straightforward as nearsightedness or farsightedness. The exam can identify other optical aberrations that might not be apparent but can affect the quality of your vision.
