"Antique Medical Instruments," by Elisabeth Bennion, London, 1979, p. 150
Research Facts
A device for measuring ocular refraction. Instrument for measuring the refractive state of the eye. There are two main types of optometers: subjective and objective. Subjective optometers rely upon the subject's judgment of sharpness or blurredness of a test object while objective ones contain an optical system which determines the vergence of light reflected from the subject's retina.
It was illegal for optometrists to use optometers after 1919, but they were frequently given away by mail order companies with the spectacle order forms.
