How do they get a script for kids glasses? I can't imagine he did well at the whole "better, worse, or the same?" thing.

They have machines that can approximate your prescription as an adult, I assume they could use something similar. I could also be absolutely wrong with how they do it.

My daughter was 18 months old when she got glasses. When I asked they explained bag it had to do with light refraction or something like that when they shined the light in her eyes. Once she became more verbal, they were able to ascertain based on, for instance, do you see a red apple, red balloon, or red dot. Things like that.

That's the only thing I could figure. I don't/didn't know for sure such a machine existed, but I assumed. That or they just try on pair after pair after pair until one makes him smile instead of cry.

Sounds about right. For some reason I thought glasses would look cool when I was really young so I lied to the optician to make it seem I had bad eyesight. They knew I was lying.

You probably kept moving the prescription in contradictory directions :P

And by “approximate” they mean.. absolutely nail it way better than the “better, worse, same” routine but if they admit that, it means you could get your prescription and contact lenses from a redbox type machine inside a Walgreens and eye doctors would lose 90% of their business.

Not really. There's consideration of astigmatisms and what range do you want your sharpest vision. Also contacts don't come in -3.7654.

Okay, 75%. I have an astigmatism and the lil farmhouse machine nailed my script. And you could still use the script from said machine on the plethora of online glasses places.

Exactly this. The A or B is to pinpoint the script but the little machine where you need to find the farm house or whatever roughly guesstimates it.

They use an autorefractor to determine an estimate on the prescription. They use this on small children because they can’t always get an accurate estimation whether or not the prescription is right. If they can communicate with the patient, then they will do an acuity test after to narrow down the prescription to the optimal magnification.

lots of them have E's at various orientations so they just have to make the hand sign with the appropriate orientation.

For earlier than that, they have some with pictures.

For earlier than that, they can use machines that shine rings of light and figure out how much magnification they need to make them come to focus on the back of the eye, then turn that into a prescription. (autorefractor)

mystyz

The machine approximates when children are pre-verbal. Once they can speak, there are various image-based charts that can be used to refine the prescription.

We use a device called a retinoscope and loose lenses to determine refractive errors on infants and nonverbal patients (like for example some of my geriatric patients that have developed aphasia from brain damage). You can determine a their script by neutralizing a light reflex that you’ll see when using a retinoscope and then you compare your results to aged-match normal. It’s a hell of a lot more accurate and consistent than using an autorefractor on a baby that doesn’t understand instruction and can’t hold still in a machine. I tried telling a baby to look at the red barn/air balloon but they insisted on being shifty.

Edit: Source: I’m an optometrist

The autorefraction which everyone is telling you about works, but from my experience it's easier to do a skiascopy on younger children.

There are machines that approximate measurements until the kid is old enough to tell a doctor which hot air balloon is clearer. I was born blind almost but my vision has been improving all my life, but I grew up before any of that technology was largely available. I remember clearly the first time I sway through glasses, it felt like the coolest superpower ever. According to my doctor I have extremely limited depth perception which basically means I’m less than stellar at sports but I am still so happy to see and fascinated by vision and sight that I’m totally happy wearing glasses forever.
