 Visual Acuity Test

A visual acuity chart is the most common tool used to examine the eyes. There are actually two types of vision chart, one is called the Snellen Eye Chart and the other is called the Tumbling E Chart.

The only difference between the two is that the Snellen Chart lists the letters of the alphabet, while the Tumbling E Chart has E's throughout, but in different directions. Why is there a latter? Because for younger children, many of them do not know how to pronounce the letters of the alphabet, so the Tumbling E is a convenient way to test their eyesight. Regardless of which chart is used, when testing vision, the chart is hung on the wall and the person stands 20 feet (6 metres) away and checks the number of lines seen.    

Sometimes, if the room is small, a mirror is used to help reduce the distance. When it comes to the sight table, you will also hear the term 20/20 vision test. 20/20 means that you can stand at a distance of 20 feet (6 metres) and see the range of the sight table that a normal person can see at 20 feet, which is commonly known as 1.0 vision.   

If a person standing at 20 feet can only see the top E and nothing else, his vision is 20/200, which means that he can see the same range of vision as an ordinary person standing at 200 feet, which is commonly known as 0.1.

Is 20/25 Vision Good for a Child?

You can give a general idea of the age of the child. For children, their visual acuity is normally 3 years old is: 0.5 - 0.6 At 4 years of age it is 0.7-0.8 0.8-0.9 for a 5 year old 0.9-1.0 for 6 year olds,. 1.0 for 7 years and above.

Does 20/25 Vision Need Glasses?

20/20 vision is considered the standard and on that basis 20/25 vision is below the standard. Many people are concerned about the need for glasses, but in fact, this vision will not affect your normal life and glasses will not help to correct your vision.

How to Fix 20/25 Vision?

Without squinting or blinking, concentrate on the outline of a blade of grass or a leaf for 25 seconds without distractions. Next, hold your left palm slightly above your eyes for 30 cm and look at the palm lines one by one from the top to the bottom for about 5 seconds.    After looking at the palm print then gaze at the distant grass or leaves for 25 seconds and then look at the palm print again. Repeat 20 times over a 10-minute period, three times a day, increasing the number of sessions for those with severe vision loss.

20/25 vision is not bad. Don't panic. Hope this article can help you well.
