This is the third technique the tutees will learn in university. They are taught how to refine their objective refraction results.
Your tutees will have had their subjective refraction lectures before this tutorial. If you would like to review what they have been taught, their lecture handouts are available to download at the bottom of this page.
Read over your notes from last year and make sure you know how to perform each of these tasks yourself. If you are unsure of something, write this aspect down in the allocated space on your question sheet and bring it up in your pre-tutorial discussion.
There is a link to the basic clinical techniques module core text book underneath this text. You must register but you may use it to remind yourself of retinoscopy technique.
Watch the video tutorial above using the questions it asks to help you fill in your question sheet.
Think about what the primary, secondary and tertiary aspects of each of the tests in subjective refraction are. Write your ideas for these in the allocated space on your question sheet.
Now download the document 'Subjective Refraction Tutor Handout' beneath this text and take it to the tutorial with you. You will need it to make notes on your discussion and assess the tutees during the session.
