Cycloplegic eye exam

Part of the medical screening process for applicants of the Marine Corps Aviation program is a cycloplegic eye refraction. Never really having been to an eye doctor before, I can’t begin to guess of what I’m in for. All I know is that I’ll have to wear funny glasses all day following the exam. For those of you who know anything about eye exams, the requirements are as follows:

a. Visual activity 20/30 OD & OS must be correctable to 20/20
b. Cycloplegic refraction:
    (1) Myopia refraction
    (2) Hyperopia no greater then +3.00 diopters
    (3) Astigmatism no greater then +/-0.75 diopters.
