Information for eye care specialists
Professionals will find the iSight Test invaluable as a portable visual acuity test in clinic, at the bedside or on home visits. The test was designed by two ophthalmologists and a paediatric orthoptist with over 25 years of experience in chart design. It uses US and UK approved letters for testing older children and adults, and the Kay Picture Test to test children as young as eighteen months. Card based version of the Kay Pictures test are fully researched and validated with many years of clinical use.
The iSight Test comprises distance letter and picture tests and near vision testing. Near vision is presented in print sizes N48 to N5 as short story paragraphs that have been carefully worded to be easy for children to read. For younger children the near test version of the Kay Picture Test is available on platforms supporting Retina Display.
Testing visual acuity with the iSight Test is simple and quick. For parents and non eye-care professionals there is general information on what to consider and expect when vision testing, as well as specific step-by-step instructions for letter and picture testing.
We believe that making vision testing available to non professionals is a positive step towards detecting amblyopia as early as possible, and preventing visual impairment. You will see from our parent advice that we recommend a professional eye test when appropriate. Our information displayed in iSight test reiterates that a vision test is only one part of a full professional eye examination.
