What is a Refraction?

A refraction is that part of the eye exam that involves looking through many different lenses so that an optimal prescription can be determined for glasses.  The refraction tells the doctor what your best vision is and what prescription is needed to achieve it.  It also provides the prescription that is the starting point for a contact lens fitting and evaluation.
