At Hanna Eye Care, we are dedicated to providing you with the best possible vision. During your comprehensive eye exam, we thoroughly evaluate your vision to ensure you’re seeing your best. If we discover you need vision correction, we use the autorefractor to determine the precise lens prescription that suits your eyes best.
How does the autorefractor work?
Have you ever wondered how eye care professionals determine your glasses or contact lenses prescription? At Hanna Eye Care, we use a computerized device called an autorefractor.
The autorefractor measures the refractive error of your eyes, helping us determine if you’re nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. It’s a quick and painless test that involves shining a light into your eyes and measuring how it reflects off the back of your eye. Once we have the measurements from the autorefractor, we can determine the right prescription for your glasses or contact lenses.
What are the benefits of the autorefractor?
One of the biggest benefits of using an autorefractor is its speed and accuracy. The measurements taken by the autorefractor are quick and precise, providing us with valuable information about the refractive error of your eyes. This helps us determine the most accurate prescription for your glasses or contact lenses.
Another great benefit of the autorefractor is that it doesn’t require any feedback from you. You don’t have to worry about answering any questions or making any choices. This makes the process easier and more comfortable for you, especially if you’re feeling a bit nervous about your eye exam.
An autorefractor is also incredibly versatile, allowing us to use it for patients of all ages and abilities. Its non-invasive and painless nature makes it perfect for young children or patients with disabilities who may be nervous about traditional eye exams.
Nidek autorefractor tonometer
At Hanna Eye Care in Jacksonville, we’re proud to offer the latest in eye care technology, including the Nidek autorefractor tonometer. The Nidek combines the technologies of an autorefractor and a non-contact tonometer to measure both the refractive error of your eyes and the pressure inside your eyes. The autorefractor helps us determine your correct eyeglass or contact lens prescription while the tonometer helps us diagnose eye diseases like glaucoma. By combining these two measurements in one device, we can quickly and accurately assess your eye health.
The Nidek autorefractor works by projecting light into your eyes and analyzing the reflected light. This allows us to determine the most precise and personalized prescription for your glasses or contact lenses, ensuring that you’re seeing the world as clearly as possible.
