Description

Introduction: This course is designed to provide the learner with an introduction to refraction/refractometry that will allow them to better understand how a prescription for spectacles or contact lenses is determined. The basic goal of refraction is to focus light rays from optical infinity on the retina through the application of corrective lenses placed in front of the eye. To restate that in functional terms, we can say that the refractionist's main goal is to provide lenses that will allow not only clear, but comfortable vision. That simply means allowing everyone to see what they desire to see without discomfort or strain.

Objectives

Objectives
