Keratometry Test

Keratometry is a type of eye test used to assess the front surface curvature of your cornea. Our eye doctors measure the front surface curvature of your cornea; this way, we can give you a complete diagnosis and treatment. We can give you a complete picture of your ocular health by measuring these parameters.

Refraction Test

Our professional eye doctors will use a special instrument called a phoropter during a refraction test. This instrument will help measure how light bends as it passes through your eye. The phoropter will also test different lenses to find the best one for you. After the refraction test is complete, our eye doctors will be able to provide you with a prescription that will correct your vision.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is astigmatism?
Astigmatism is a refractive error that happens when your cornea is longer and more oval than it should be. This interferes with light focusing on your retina. The cells at the back of your eye transform light into signals that go to your brain to become visual images.
What are the signs of astigmatism?
Blurry vision is the most significant indicator of astigmatism. Some other symptoms include:

  • Poor night vision
  • Eyestrain
  • Chronic headaches
  • Irritated eyes
What is the treatment for astigmatism?
In many situations, eyeglasses and contact lenses are both effective ways to correct astigmatism. In some situations, LASIK surgery could be an effective astigmatism solution. The Nicholas Rutkowski, O.D. and Associates team recommends IntraLase™ surgery for LASIK because it’s a state-of-the-art evolution of traditional LASIK that uses a laser instead of a blade.
How is astigmatism diagnosed?
There are several tests for astigmatism, including:

  • Visual acuity test using eye charts
  • Keratometry test to check corneal curvature
  • Refraction to see how well your eyes focus light

In most cases, astigmatism diagnosis happens during a regularly scheduled comprehensive eye exam.
