Have you ever been to your eye care professional’s office and felt like they are speaking a completely different language? One of the phrases you may have heard at your last visit is ‘ophthalmic refractometer.’
A refractometer is a device used to measure the lens strength and power you need to correct refractive errors.
Basically, the refractometer will help your doctor identify refractive errors in the cornea of your eyes. Refractive errors prevent the light entering the eyes to focus properly on your retina, negatively impacting your vision. The most common conditions causing refractive error are myopia (near-sightedness), presbyopia (far-sightedness), and astigmatism (an irregularly shaped cornea). The measurements provided by the refractometer help your eye care professional write a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct your vision.
