Objective Measurement of Refraction

This remarkable technique, invented by Cuignet (1873) and named by Chibret (1882), consists of observation of the direction of movement of light on the pupil of subject P when the clinician displaces the image of a light source on the retina. The movement appears in one direction or the other, according to whether the remotum of the subject is in front of or behind the clinician M. If the remotum coincides with the eye of M, the pupil of P becomes entirely illuminated. This neutral point permits determination of the refraction of P. This is sometimes called retinoscopy instead of skiascopy.
