The refraction test, also know as eye text, is performed with the objective of determining if you have a refractive error, and need contact lenses or glasses.

The test is simply done by asking the patient to sit in a chair that has a special device and focus on a chart situated at 6 meters away. The patient will then look through different sets of lenses. The ocularist will ask him at each time whether the chart looks blurry or clear.

In some cases, abnormal results may occur. The causes of such results are many, including astigmatism (curved cornea resulting in blurred vision), hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), presbyopia (inability to focus on near objects). These are some of the cases when we recommend the patient to wear contact lenses and/or glasses.


The optical contact lenses correct the vision caused by some eye conditions such as astigmatism or myopia. The optometrist or ocularist prescribes these lenses after performing a refraction eye test. This test determines the power of the lens that the patient needs. Some eye diseases prohibit patients from wearing contact lenses causing infections, irritations, allergies or dry eye. In these cases, we recommend patients to wear optical glasses instead. Some complications may also arise if the patient ignores the lenses prescription. For example, sleeping in lenses that are not designed for extended use is a common cause of complications. Consequently, it is very important to properly care and handle the contact lenses in order to prevent eye-related complications.


Cosmetic contact lenses change the appearance of the eye. These lenses can also treat reflective errors in the vision. The cosmetic lenses come in different colors. Some people wear them only to dramatically change the eye color, or to highlight and beautify its natural color. In all cases, we recommend a refraction test before purchasing lenses even the cosmetic ones. All this is to prevent irritation and redness of the eye.


Multifocal contact lenses treat refractive errors caused by presbyopia. Simply put, presbyopia the need for holding a paper farther from the eye in order to read. This condition is common among people growing up in age. For this reason, we prescribe the multifocal contact lenses to provide a clear vision for all distances. They come with different features such as the usage frequency and the materials they’re made of. However, it is important as with all contact lenses to handle properly and with care.


Optical glasses, typically used for vision correction, should match the prescription of an optometrist after a refraction test that determines the features of the glasses. There is a wide range of lenses to place in optical glasses frames depending on the condition. Corrective glasses can significantly improve the life of their wearer. In fact, they correct their wearer’s vision and rid them of many problems resulting from eye strain such a headache. There is a minimal care of optical glasses is minimal to keep them from scratches and damages.


Sunglasses are a must for everyone as a daily use. They provide valuable protection against bright light and UV light. 
Protective sunglasses block at least 99% of UVB rays and 95% of UVA rays. They come in different shades that have different advantages other than their appearance. Make sure to mention when will you wear your protective sunglasses to your optometrist so he can advise you with the right shade to buy. Additionally, sunglasses may also have a corrective function.
