Translucent acrylic letter screening chart and optional illumination box
Kay Letter Test 6m Acrylic LogMAR Chart / Light Box
The Kay Letter Test 6 Metre Acrylic LogMAR Chart provides 6 Sloan letter optotypes in LogMAR sizing and Snellen equivalent sizes from 0.8 to -0.2 LogMAR (6/38 to 6/3.8 Snellen). The six letters have been carefully chosen to provide similar legibility with the need to differentiate similar shapes. This also gives the option to use a matching card if required.
Sizes 0.3 to -0.2 have 5 letters per line, giving the option to assign a LogMAR acuity score to each letter for the best repeatability. The LogMAR and Snellen scores provided on this chart are specific for a six metre test distance. If you use this chart at a different distance the scores will need to be adjusted accordingly. To test for acuity sizes worse that 0.8 (6/38) we recommend that you change your test distance to three metres which will add 3 additional LogMAR sizes. See more information in the scoring tab.
The Kay Letter Test 6 Metre Acrylic LogMAR Chart fits a standard large Evans illuminated LED light box and four-sided rotating test type.
From the drop-down menu above, you can choose to purchase the chart together with the Evans light box, light box with carry handle or light box with a wall bracket.
The lightweight LED illuminated box holds a single vision testing acrylic panel and has a spotlight below the panel. A manual side switch will select which section is illuminated. It comes with a 12V medical power plug and 2 metre lead to the right side of the unit. The box is white in colour and can be wall-hung, or stood on its feet plus integral stability bar. The LED illumination strips should last for 30-50,000 hours. Replacements can be fitted by the manufacturer.
This standard size acrylic chart will slide up for easy replacement, if required.

Scoring at 3M
How to score visual acuity if using this six-metre chart at a three metre test distance:
LogMAR – add 0.3 to the LogMAR score shown on the chart, so a LogMAR score of 0.8 becomes 1.1; 0.7 become 1.0; and so on.
Snellen – either replace the numerator figure 6 with 3, so 6/38 size shown is 3/38 OR keep the numerator 6 and double the denominator figure, so 6/38 size shown is 6/72.
