Subjective Refraction: A new vectorial method for determining the cylinder 2/3

Subjective Refraction: A new vectorial method for determining the cylinder 2/3Click here to read the article

The refraction technique traditionally used to determine the corrective cylinder for a prescription has changed very little over the years, mainly due to the limitations imposed by subjective phoropters, which present lenses in increments usually no smaller than 0.25 D.
Today, thanks to phoropters with continuous power changes that allow to simultaneously and accurately act on sphere, cylinder and axis, it is now possible to develop new refraction techniques. This series of three articles describes the principles of a new vectorial method for determining the corrective cylinder and presents the rationale for an associated automated cylinder search algorithm.
