Brief Summary:
Correlating the accuracy of a refraction done over telemedicine to that of a standard refraction, with a study hypothesis that the results will be equivalent.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism, Presbyopia, Eye Strain, Device: Telemedicine refraction Device: Traditional refraction Not Applicable

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 30 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Study Start Date : February 2015
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2015
Actual Study Completion Date : June 2015

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Telemedicine refraction before traditional refraction
We will first refract an individual using telemedicine refraction, and then refract them using a traditional refraction method.
Device: Telemedicine refraction
Other Names:
  • Glasses,
  • Contact lenses,
  • Refractive surgery,

Device: Traditional refraction
Experimental: Traditional refraction before telemedicine refraction
We will first refract an individual using a traditional refraction, and then refract them using a telemedicine refraction method.
Device: Telemedicine refraction
Other Names:
  • Glasses,
  • Contact lenses,
  • Refractive surgery,

Device: Traditional refraction



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. refraction in diopters over telemedicine compared standard phoropter refraction [ Time Frame: an average of 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. telemedicine refraction results beyond dioptric readings [ Time Frame: an average of 1 year ]
    to see if there are other uses for telemedicine refraction results


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. patient satisfaction from telerefraction [ Time Frame: an average of 1 year ]
