(ˌrɛtɪˈnɒskəpɪ)
n
(Medicine) ophthalmol a procedure for detecting errors of refraction in the eye by means of an instrument (retinoscope) that reflects a beam of light from a mirror into the eye. Diagnosis is made by observing the areas of shadow and the direction in which the light moves when the mirror is rotated. Also called: skiascopy or shadow test

The variables that loaded on Factor 3 were related to dynamic acuity.
Further analyses suggested that static acuity was a mediating predictor for both dynamic acuity and illumination.

The resulting functions appear generally consistent with various sets of findings from disparate work in the vision literature related to contrast sensitivity and to dynamic acuity.
Following the determination of static acuity, the participant's dynamic acuity for Landolt-C targets presented at the two target velocities of 60 [degrees] and 120 [degrees]/s was measured.
