 Measuring Children Without Dilation.           
To get an accurate reading with the Retinomax 2 or 3 autorefractor (and any autorefractor for that matter) you must dilate.  We recommend that you dilate 100% of those below 20.  Between 20 and 30 dilate 100% if not rushed; otherwise, check twice and if a significant reading difference, then dilate.  Rarely must you dilate those over 30.  Wait 15 minutes for dilation to work. Flash penlight in eyes and wait longer if you get a reaction.  Remember to test children (before dilation) with clear glass glasses as they might try to trick you to get glasses.
