Autorefractor keratometer is the first device used by the eye doctor to examine your eyes when visiting a modern eye doctor’s office. It automatically detects the optical power of the eye, corneal curvature and its regularity. It helps to determine the strength of the lens needed to correct the optical aberrations or the optical errors of the eye. It also helps to assess the general condition of the outer parts of the eye.
