    Hi there,

    I have a bit of a strange question for an essay I'm writing, unrelated to optometry in general.
    Will a person with a history of perfect vision (20/10) who even goes for a yearly checkup - still go through a refraction test? (with a phoropter)?

    I don't really understand anything about it so I don't know if this is only for those in need of glasses or not (because I remember lenses are used for it).
    Also are reading charts are generally used before/after a refraction test?

    Thank you, I'm sorry for my English, it's not my main language.
    I really hope you could help me because I really find it difficult to find this information online in written in a way I'd actually understand.
