Refraction

Refraction is the evaluation of visual function by using objective and subjective methods to determine refractive error (spectacle correction). This method uses a range of specialised techniques for diagnostic purposes, post-operative result and management of complex optical prescriptions.

Refraction provides visual assessments prior to the consultant’s consideration of registering a person as being blind or partially-sighted.
