Refraction Eye Exams

Correct Your Vision With Refraction Eye Exams

What Is a Refraction Eye Exam?

If you wear glasses or contact lenses, then you’ve had a refraction eye exam. This is the part of the eye exam where your eye doctor places a series of corrective lenses in front of your eyes. By dialing the lenses from one to another, you can tell which one gives you clearer eyesight. At the end of the process, your ophthalmologist will be able to give you a prescription for glasses or contacts to correct your vision.

What Does the Word Refraction Mean?

Refraction refers to the way light travels through your eye. Inconsistencies in your retina or cornea can cause your vision to become blurry. By conducting an eye test, your ophthalmologist can determine if you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism.

Why Are Refraction Eye Exams Important?

Unclear vision can cause headaches and eye strain, not to mention the difficulties you may have with reading or driving. A refraction eye exam helps your eye doctor determine the type of vision problem you have, then find the best prescription lenses or contacts to help correct it. An annual visit is the best way to catch vision problems before they progress. Call Rock Hill Eye Center today to schedule your appointment.
