This app displays optically accurate optotypes of eye charts on smart phones and tablets. At exactly 6 meters away from the “patient”, the optotypes on the 6/6 line (Decimal 1.0 or LogMar 0.0) shall subtend 5 minutes of arc, which means that the chart should be sized such that these optotypes are 8.73mm tall, and the topmost (Snellen Fraction 6/60, Decimal 0.1, or LogMar 1.0) optotypes should be 87.3 mm tall. At exactly 20 feet away from the “patient”, the topmost optotypes should be 88.7 mm tall, because 20 feet equals 6.096 meters. Therefore, this app enables you as a home user or health professional to detect and measure visual acuity, particularly nearsightedness or myopia.

Voice Hint is available for a "doctor" wearing a headphone when observing the responses from the "patient".
While this app may replace Snellen Chart, E-Chart, C-Chart, ETDRS Charts and HOTV Chart in print, it cannot replace doctors and optometrists who carry out comprehensive tests for your eyes. Please visit optometrists regularly and seek help from medical professional at early signs of visual acuity problems.
You can test your visual acuity frequently with this app. For example, if you have young children to take care of, you may test their visual acuity monthly, fortnightly or weekly, so you can take preventive measures and seek help from medical professional early to prevent their visual acuity from getting worse.
