medición de los errores refractivos (/del grado de ametropia) ...


Explanation:
To refract is to mesure the ametropia or refractional errors, including
(myopia, hypermetropia or hyperopia, and astigmatism).
(any > or = to 0,5 D).

"El diagnóstico precoz de estos errores refractivos permitirá evitar el poco desarrollo visual (ambliopía) y brindar una mejor calidad de vida. "
http://www.sao.org.ar/inside/dia_mundial_vision.php

"Conclusiones: Podemos decir que los errores refractivos son frecuentes en la población infantil, en su mayoría no detectados, y que es probable que los factores raciales influyan en el desarrollo de determinado error refractivo.
Palabras clave: Refracción, ametropia".
