Refraction at ILS Hospitals: Precision in Vision Correction

Understanding Refraction:

Refraction is a crucial eye examination procedure performed at ILS Hospitals to assess and correct vision problems. It determines the refractive error, including near-sightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia, allowing for the precise prescription of corrective lenses.

Key Aspects of Refraction:

  • Accurate Vision Assessment:
  • Refraction precisely measures how well the eyes focus light, helping identify any refractive errors that may affect vision clarity.
  • Prescription for Corrective Lenses:
  • Based on the refractive error assessment, optometrists or ophthalmologists prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses tailored to individual visual needs.
  • Detection of Astigmatism:
  • Refraction assists in detecting astigmatism, an irregular curvature of the cornea or lens, impacting both near and distance vision.
  • Evaluation of Presbyopia:
  • For individuals experiencing presbyopia (age-related difficulty focusing on close objects), refraction helps determine the appropriate corrective measures.

The Refraction Procedure:

  • Visual Acuity Testing:
  • A visual acuity chart is used to assess how well each eye can see at various distances.
  • Phoropter Utilization:
  • A phoropter, an optical device, is employed to present different lens options, allowing the patient to choose the combination that provides the clearest vision.
  • Objective and Subjective Refraction:
  • Objective refraction uses automated devices to measure refractive errors objectively. Subjective refraction involves the patient’s feedback to fine-tune the prescription.
  • Prescription Determination:
  • The final prescription is determined based on the patient’s responses and the optimal lens combination providing the sharpest vision.
