In stock


The new Kay Picture Test Low Vision Book is specifically targeted at testing those with reduced vision.

It provides uncrowded picture visual acuity testing at three metres and near. Our Low Vision Book comprises fourteen acuity sizes from LogMAR 1.3 to 0.0. At each acuity size you will find three or four picture options. The size notation is shown on the side index and on the page facing the tester. These are LogMAR, Snellen Metres and Feet.

In addition, there is a near vision test that displays two pictures at each acuity size from LogMAR 1.3 to 0.0 at 33 cm in a widely spaced chart for easier identification. Full instructions are printed on the inside cover. A matching card is also included for picture recognition or for use during testing. Age 18 months+.

The Kay Picture Test New Low Vision Book is packaged in a frosted PVC wallet with flap closure for safe storage in between uses.

The test comprises our fully-researched picture optotypes that provide a reliable visual acuity measurement comparable with ETDRS.

The encapsulated front and back covers of the books are fully sealed, edge-to-edge. The covers can be cleaned with an anti-bacterial agent or perhaps even an alcohol-based cleaner. The only area where this plasticised covering is compromised is at the holes for the spiral binding, so extra care should be taken to not allow liquid to leak into the holes.

The inner pages are laminated and not sealed at the ends. Any liquid that penetrates underneath the laminate will eventually discolour the pages and potentially lead to the sheets de-laminating at the edges. Anti-bacterial wipes could be used very carefully, whilst paying close attention not to get the edges too damp.


“The picture books make our job a lot easier when trying to get a VA on younger children or those with additional needs.”
