Kay Picture Tests

“I am a great fan of your vision tests and products and I use the Kay pictures chart a lot.”

Professor Bruce Evans, City University, London

“In every hospital I’ve worked, Kays picture test has been the gold standard test for paediatric acuity.”

Dr. Iain Livingstone, Glasgow


Linear Crowded Book

“The Flemish guideline in School Health Care concerning the early detection of visual impairment in schoolchildren recommends the use of the Kay 3m Crowded Book for pupils up to the age of 5 years.

Our experience with the Kay 3m Crowded Book is very favourable and the feedback from professionals very positive…. Because of its attractive pattern the Kay Crowded Test makes it much easier to get the participation of young children, compared to other tests.

I would like to express my greatest appreciation for your work related to the early detection of visual impairment in young children This has helped us a lot to design a successful screening program in Flanders.”

Dr Cecile Guerin, Flemish Scientific Society for Youth Health Care


Kay Fun Patches

“We use these as our first line of occlusion treatment. The addition of the elastic is successful in securing the patch to plastic frames which do not have the nose pads, so well done for this.”

Gladys Henderson, Head Orthoptist, Monklands Hospital

“Just to say that the Orthoptists at MK are loving the new Kay patches, the elastic, the designs etc.”

J. Eyre, Milton Keynes Hospital

“I am a 60 year old woman who suffers double vision following a burst aneurysm. I have to wear a patch and I was given a couple by my hospital. I find them so easy to wear and would like to buy some more…….

Thank you very much for the set of 10 girl’s patches – I am delighted with them”

Mrs Robertson, Argyll


HRR Colour Test

“I use the HRR in preference to Ishihara or anything else as I find it user friendly and achieves what I want, which is to identify acquired colour loss. I am not really interested in inherited loss, although it will do that too.

I find the test plates very useful so that young patients in particular can work out what they need to do. The presence of the screening plates makes the test much quicker than Ishihara if normal. The presence of yellow blue is helpful in acquired colour defects as well as in the odd red green colour blind patient who you might want to look for a superimposed acquired defect.”
