Details

A automated refraction (vision test) is a computerized assessment of how the eyes bend and focus light to create an image on the retina. The process has been scientifically proven a safe, reliable, and reproducible test. It uses equipment and a sophisticated computer program to test and measure visual acuity. It also calculates whether clients would see more clearly with the help of corrective lenses and determines the strength of lenses needed.

At Lens R Us, we offer a free Vision test with a purchase of eye glasses or annual supply of contact lenses for clients between the ages of 19 and 64. Without an eye wear or contact lens purchase, the vision test is $60.

Only automated refracting Licensed Opticians who are trained to safely and effectively perform sight testing are legally permitted to assess visual acuity. Refracting opticians are not trained nor licensed to give eye exams to determine eye health.

This automated vision test can help determine the right prescription for your eyes to help you see more clearly. However, it cannot tell you if your eyes are healthy or if you have other underlying illnesses that may be changing your vision.


Who should have an automated vision test?

If you are between the ages of 19 and 65, are in good health, have not experienced any sudden change in vision or unusual visual symptoms, then auto-refraction is a safe and effective way to test your vision.

In between regular eye health exams, it can also be used to update your prescription to ensure your lenses are helping you see most clearly. Those individuals under 19 or 65 and over, are covered by B.C. Medical. Call us to find out if any additional charges apply or book an appointment with our in-store optometrists.


Who is not allowed to have an automated vision test?

Research and experience have shown the equipment is safe for all individuals; however, some people are not eligible for automated vision testing. Those who fall within the eligible age group may be excluded from sight testing if they have certain illnesses or injuries such as: diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, recent unusual visual symptoms, or if they have undergone recent eye surgery. Individuals in these categories should have more frequent eye-health examinations to monitor their eyes for potential eye-health changes.
