Comparison between refractometer and retinoscopy in determining refractive errors in children--false doubt
Early detection of a refractive error and its correction are extremely important for the prevention of amblyopia (poor vision). The golden standard in the detection of refractive errors is retinoscopy--a method where the pupils are dilated in order to exclude accomodation. This results in a more accurate measurement of a refractive error. Automatic computer refractometer is also in use. The study included 30 patients, 15 boys, 15 girls aged 4-16. The first examination was conducted withpmid:23837245 fatcat:6enl3w2k6rfpvggpm6jqa35nla
