A Snellen chart is an eye chart that can be used to measure visual acuity.

Snellen charts are named after the Dutch ophthalmologist Herman Snellenwho developed the chart in The experimental charts developed in used abstract symbols. The normal Snellen chart is printed with eleven lines of block letters.

The first line snelken of one very large letter, which may be one of several letters, for example E, H, or N. Subsequent rows have increasing numbers of letters that decrease in size. A person taking the test covers one eye from 6 metres or 20 feet away, and reads aloud the letters of each row, beginning at the top. The smallest row that can be read accurately indicates the visual acuity in that specific eye. The symbols on an acuity chart are formally known as ” optotypes “.

In the case of the traditional Snellen chart, the optotypes have the appearance of block letters, and are intended to be seen and read as letters. They are not, however, letters from any ordinary typographer’s font.

They have a particular, simple geometry in which:. The perception of five out of six letters or similar ratio is judged to be the Snellen fraction.

Whenever acuity must be assessed carefully as in an eye doctor’s examinationor where there is a possibility that the examinee might sneklen to deceive the examiner as in a motor vehicle license officeequipment is used that can present the letters in a variety of randomized patterns. Thus the optotype can only be recognized if the person viewing it can discriminate a spatial pattern separated by a visual angle of one minute of arc. Other acuities are expressed as ratios with a numerator of 6.

Some clinics do not have 6-metre eye lanes available, and either a half-size chart subtending the same angles at 3 metres 9. In the most familiar acuity test, a Snellen chart is placed at a standard distance: At this distance, the symbols on the line representing “normal” acuity subtend wnellen angle of five minutes of arc, and the thickness of the lines and of the spaces between the lines subtends one minute of arc.

Putting it another way, the eye should be at a distance Acuity charts are used during many kinds of vision examinations, cara as “refracting” the eye to determine the best eyeglass prescription.


During such examinations, acuity ratios are never mentioned. To ensure adequate illumination of the Cartx charts, various medical device manufacturers had developed Snellen chart products with backlight or projection.

Commonly digital chart products support randomizing optotypes displayed to prevent patients from cheating through memorizing the chart. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
