Free Eye Chart From Studio Eye Care London
Searching for a free eye chart to check your vision at home?
Remember: This is not a substitute for a complete medical eye exam by a licensed optometrist. But it could help you identify potential vision problems that demand professional attention.
How to Use the Eye Chart
- Print the free eye chart on regular 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper
- Tack or tape the chart to a windowless wall in a well-lit room at eye level
- Measure ten feet from the wall
- Cover one eye (if you wear glasses for distance vision, keep them on)
- Have another person point to each line as you read the letters out loud and keep track of which letters you get right
- Continue to the bottom row or until you can no longer read the letters
- Write down the number of the smallest line where you identified the majority of letters correctly (Ex./ If you were able to read 5 out of 8 letters on line 8, you would write 20/20.)
- Cover the other eye and repeat steps 5-7
What Do the Results Mean?
That depends on the age of the person being tested. A 3 to 4-year-old should be able to read the 20/40 line, and a 5-year-old the 20/30 line. Older children and adults should be able to read the majority of letters on the 20/20 line.
If you notice any results that fall outside these standards, be sure to schedule an eye exam with us! 519-681-3670
