Title: Snellen in a small room
Post by: EugeneS on October 03, 2016, 09:24:20 AM
It has been recommended from 20 FT away to self test. What does one do if we don't have that amount of space in our apartment?

If you have one big mirror you can "double" the distance by adding the distance of the Snellen chart from the mirror and the distance from the mirror to your eyes.

Is there a 10FT Snellen chart online somewhere?

Here is a video on how to mark up a 20 foot Snellen:

Here is the Snellen to be down-loaded:

From my own experience, it is indeed necessary to write in big letters the line, in 20, 30 ,  40, 60,
so you can actually read it at 20 feet.  (Or 10 feet).

The point is this.  You can't do this with the standard eye chart !!
