OPTICA Near reading card with N5 at bottom, laminated
303mm x 185mm The card is laminated and non-reflective card for surface protection.
The text used is interesting and in a modern prose form. It is not designed to test reading skill but rather to present an easy and neutral clinical test in accordance with the recommendation of the Faculty of Ophthalmologists, London. The isolated test words will suit a wide range of patients with different reading abilities – including children.
Letter sizes on one side:
N5, N6, N8, N10, N12, N14, N18, N24, N26, N48
The reverse side of the card are examples of:
A part of a page from The Telephone Book
Reduced Snellen equivalent
Line of music score
Traditionally, the small N5 size print has been located at the top of the card.
To make the reading test easier through bifocal and progressive lenses, this card has the letter sizes printed in reverse order so the small N5 size print is at the bottom of the page.
