5. Objective refraction
6. Subjective refraction
7. Ocular health evaluation
At the end of this lecture, learners should be able to:
Give the differences and explain
each point given
NB. Very important, It has to be even more detailed
Why is it important to take LV
Visual history regular exam
5. regular exam Medical history
6. regular exam Employment or school history
8. regular exam Social assessment
10. General appearance of patient regular exam
1.Why do we want to accurately measure acuity?
2. Limitations of VA measurement
3. Factors affecting VA measurements
4. Distance Visual Acuity
5. Near Visual Acuity
Factors affecting VA measurements sensitivity, glare sensitivity, motivation and numerous other factors
The following aspects of chart design can be considered
Refer to your notes for advantages and disadvantages
Of this chart
Always obtain the best possible refraction with the best possible VA – to give the lowest magnification, why?
1 General conditions
2 The trial frame
3 The JND (just noticeable difference)
4 Spherical refraction
5 Cylindrical refraction
Why do we use it?
Use standard methods and background knowledge to refine cylinder axis, power and sphere power
