A study was made on 600 eyes with refrac­tive errors in different age groups. Refraction without cycloplegics and refraction with cyclo­plegics (1 % atropine or 2% homatropine or 10% phenyl-epherine) were compared. The results were almost confirmatory in 98% of cases. Majority of refractive errors fell in group of 0 -3 Dioptres. It was concluded that refraction should be done without cycloplegia unless cycloplegia is strongly indicated on cli­nical or other basis.

It is possible to do refraction and prescribe glasses in one sitting on the same day. This procedure is recommended for adoption on a routine basis.
