Principles of Refraction for Opticians and Technicians

03/23/2019, 9:45 AM - 11:45 AM

Javits Convention Center - TBD
Language:
English

This course brings together the theories of refraction and how the refracting procedures tie in with the patients Rx. We will begin with a brief overview of the objective refraction process, comparing retinoscopy and vergences of the eye. Participants will compare refractive errors with vergences and relate this to the objective refractive process. Continuing with the subjective refraction, we will look at the concept of visual resolution and the order of cylinder refinement. Duochrome, Binocular Balance and measuring Add Power will round out the course.
