Searching for a free eye chart to check your vision at home?

Simply click on the image above, and your download will begin. You can use this eye chart to check your entire family's vision.

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

  1. Print the free eye chart on regular 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper
  2. Tack or tape the chart to a windowless wall in a well-lit room at eye level
  3. Measure ten feet from the wall
  4. Cover one eye (if you wear glasses for distance vision, keep them on)
  5. Have another person point to each line as you read the letters out loud and keep track of which letters you get right
  6. Continue to the bottom row or until you can no longer read the letters
  7. 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.)
  8. 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

  • Whitening eye drops poison to kids?
    June 15 - 17  |  I learned something today...  "Eyedrops get rid of bloodshot eyes but they can also be dangerous if your kid decides to squirt some in their mouth. 'Eyedrops that contain imidazoline decongestants such as naphazoline, tetrahydrozoline, or oxymetazoline are dangerous when ingested, even in small quantities like 1-2 tablespoons,' says Gwenn Christianson, RN at the Indiana Poison Center at IU Health. They can sedate children, and interfere with breathing. "

  • Skin Cancer & Sunglasses
    May 2017 | As Summer fast approaches it has me thinking about new sunglasses.  Everyone knows that protecting eyes from the harmful rays of the sun with good sunglasses is just as important as protecting your skin with good sunscreen.  However, did you know that sunglasses also protect  delicate eyelid tissue from UV?    Our eye lids are a common place for skin cancer because we never put sunscreen close to our eyes.   Wear sunglasses this summer to protect both your eye and lids!

  • Why do we see spots after a camera flash?
    Feb 27, 2017  |  Great question from a young patient last week... "Why do I see spots after a bright light?"   To understand why, lets first talk about how the eye works.   When any light hits the back of the eye (retina) a chemical reaction occurs that converts the light energy into electrical/nerve energy that goes to the brain.  This reaction takes fuel that is constantly being produced by the eye and then used up - over and over again.   Under normal circumstances the fuel's speed-of-creation can keep up with the fuel's speed-of-use.  However, when the eye is presented with intense brightness like a camera flash (or eye exam!), the fuel is used up much faster than production.   Because there is no/low fuel after the flash, this flashed zone of the retina appears dark because there is no creation of the electrical/nervous energy until the fuel regenerates.    dr.j     Studioeyecare.com
