Although more advanced and complicated equipment is used in the eye care industry, the Snellen chart, which has been in use since the mid-nineteenth century, remains a cheap, simple, and effective piece of equipment. Is This an Emergency? If you are experiencing serious medical symptoms, seek emergency treatment immediately. While only a trained eye care professional can properly diagnose vision disorders, using a Snellen chart either at home or in the workplace is both easy and safe.

Secure the Snellen chart to a flat surface in a well-lit room. Measure twenty feet from the chart and mark a spot facing the chart directly. The test results will only be accurate if it is taken from this distance. Stand at the twenty foot line and cover your left eye, so you can only see out of your right eye. Starting from the top, read each row from left to right for as far down as you can still make out the letters.

Note the last line on which you could correctly identify every letter. Have an assistant verify that you are reading the letters correctly. Repeat the test with your left eye, covering your right eye this time. Note the last row you could read with complete accuracy.

The row for each eye will not necessarily be the same. Take note of the fraction shown to the left of each row: It identifies how your vision rates. Look at your results to determine the quality of your eyesight. Warnings While invaluable for determining nearsightedness, the Snellen chart does not identify a number of other vision disorders. Home use of a Snellen chart is not a replacement for professional vision testing. Things Needed.

Subsequent rows have increasing numbers of letters that decrease in size. A person taking the test covers one eye from 6 metres or 20 feet away, and reads aloud the letters of each row, beginning at the top. The smallest row that can be read accurately indicates the visual acuity in that specific eye. The symbols on an acuity chart are formally known as " optotypes ". In the case of the traditional Snellen chart, the optotypes have the appearance of block letters, and are intended to be seen and read as letters.
