The new Kay Picture Test Low Vision Book is speciﬁcally targeted at testing those with poor 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 with three or four picture options at each acuity size. The size notation is shown on the side index and on the page facing the tester in LogMAR and in Snellen Metres and Feet.
The near vision test 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 and matching card is included for picture recognition or for use during testing. Age 18 months+.
The test comprises our new, fully-researched picture optotypes that provide a reliable visual acuity measurement comparable with ETDRS.
