Refraction Tutorials

Tutorial menu screenshot
  • Learn to refract in plus or minus cylinder.
  • Eight videos and 6 interactive lessons teaching:
    • The parts of the refracting instrument
    • Establishing sphere power
    • Cylinder axis refinement
    • Cylinder power refinement
    • Maintaining the spherical equivalent
    • Cylinder power search
    • Sphere power refinement

Refraction Simulator

Tutorial menu screenshot
  • Practice refracting in plus or minus cylinder.
  • Refract random patients or choose to practice on:
    • Myopes
    • Hyperopes
    • Astigmatism
    • People who can't see 20/20
    • People who just can't give a straightforward response
    • Patients that you manually create
  • View your results to see:
    • How close you came to the patient's "true" refraction
    • The level of vision you achieved compared to their best possible vision
    • How well you established and maintained the spherical equivalent

Interactive Retinoscopy Tutorials
