Retinoscopy is an objective method of measuring the optical power of the eye. We use a retinoscope to illuminate the inside of the eye and to observe the light that is reflected from the retina. These reflected rays change as they pass out through the optical components of the eye, and by examining just how these emerging rays change, we determine the refractive power of the eye.
