160024 - How to Treat quiz: Refractive error

  • : Online

Relevance to General Practice

Refractive error, or ametropia, is the most common cause of impaired vision. It is also the most treatable, with most cases being correctable with prescription glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery. While mild to moderate cases are simple to treat, more severe levels of refractive error can result in complications that can cause permanent vision loss. A thorough visual assessment with an optometrist or ophthalmologist is essential in patients suspected of having refractive error, in order to rule out sinister differential diagnoses.
