Retinoscopes: The Basics

A retinoscope is an instrument used to objectively determine the refractive power of the eye. It works by allowing the examiner to project a beam of light into the eye and then observe the light as it is reflected back out of the eye.  The emerging light will change as it passes through the optical components of th eye, and by judging how much it changes, the examiner can determine the refractive power of the eye.

Types of Retinoscopy

There are basically static retinoscopy and dynamic retinoscopy. Static retinoscopy is used for routine refractions with the patient viewing a distant target. Dynamic retinoscopy is performed when the patient focuses on a near target and is helpful in determining the accommodative ability of eyes with decreased vision and in checking for residual accommodation after administering a cycloplegic drug.
