This course is the second part of Refraction 101 and will focus on the polishing of the refraction including easy refinement techniques, the determination of the ADD power, and some interesting refracting pearls. The reader will be given an explanation of prescription balancing tests, how to check for astigmatism when there is little to no astigmatism and when other methods are inconclusive, and will learn how to check for a reading ADD using several different methods. At the conclusion of this article, the reader will have several tools to use to refine and double check their refractions for accuracy.
