Let's Test your Near vision
Step 1: Lets get this right. If you're using a:
- 14" screen stay approximately 74cm from the screen
- 15" screen stay approximately 1m from the screen
- 17" screen stay approximately 1.50m from the screen
- 20" screen stay approximately 2.20m from the screen
When you are ready look at the picture below.
Cover one eye with your palm (don't press on the lid) and read the text, letter by letter, then cover the other eye and read it again.
If you read the text successfuly with both eyes then you probably have good central acuity.
If you have difficulties reading this at all then you need to see an optician. It's not a big deal,it happens to a lot of people nearing old age, it just means you need glasses.
