Previous published studies have suggested that the likelihood of partially prescribing increases with practitioner experience. What is not currently well understood is the approach taken by practitioners during the course of an eye examination. Texts and university courses usually concentrate on the determination of a full subjective prescription and then by comparison with the patient's current spectacles modify this subjective result, if considered appropriate for reasons of adaptation. Focus groups of optometrists have suggested however that they may not always determine the full subjective result and instead use the current prescription and with consideration of the retinoscopy/autorefractor result perform subjective tests only as far as the prescription which will be issued. This study aims to investigate such approaches.

Five case scenarios are presented in this questionnaire, together with background information as may be reported by the patient and found from previous records. Please imagine you have the patient in your room and consider how you might approach the refraction of this patient.
