Sometimes young children may not sit still, pay attention or interact with the eye doctor adequately for an accurate manual refraction. Not a problem. We can
use an autorefractor. It takes only a few seconds, and the results obtained greatly reduce the time required.
The doctor may also use a retinoscope. When the lights are dimmed, the child fixates on a large target and the doctor will shine a light at one eye and flip lenses in a machine in front of the eyes. Based light reflection the doctor is able to “ballpark” the prescription, then a refraction determines the exact prescription.
It’s easy to set up a Kid’s comprehensive eye exam. Simply call (502) 897-1604.
