Purpose: To show the importance of the cicloplegic method in the refraction evaluation comparing the automated refraction (subjective and objective) and the subjective static refraction. Method: One-hundred patients (200 eyes) between 5 and 40 years were prospectivelly evaluated according the static and dynamic automated refraction and the subjective static refraction, using an automated refractor Nidek ARK - 900. The data were submitted to statical evaluation. Results: The concordance indices were better after cycloplegia mainly in relation of the spheric degree and cílindric axes. Conclusion: Cycloplegia is very important to have accurace in the automated refraction in patients before 40 year-old.
