Visual Acuity Test
This is performed using eye charts with letters, numbers, or symbols. You will be asked to read progressively smaller rows of letters or numbers until they become indistinguishable. Even if you have to guess, try to make out the smallest letters possible without squinting.
An objective refraction may be performed with a computer (auto refraction) or a hand-held instrument called a retinoscope giving an estimate of your refractive error (visual error). Following, subjective refraction refines your prescription based on your subjective responses to a variety of lenses resulting in a determination of your spectacle correction.
