Adding foreign language eye charts to Eye Chart Pro

Our main goal with Eye Chart Pro is to increase access to quality visual acuity testing. This effort has always had the most impact in the developing world.

We’re excited to announce that we have been working with a team of researchers at Anglia Ruskin University, led by Dr. John Siderov, to create LogMAR visual acuity charts in Gujarati that are freely available within Eye Chart Pro.

This chart will allow for visual acuity screening on Gujarati-literate patients who are not familiar with latin characters.

Gujarati is a language spoken by over 50 million people in India. Dr. Siderov’s team created a set of Gujarati language optotypes by modifying Gujarati fonts, carefully selecting letters for each line, and validating the optotypes set in a LogMAR format, which is the recommended visual acuity test.

To further our goal of increasing access to visual acuity testing, we would love to create charts for more languages to reach non-English-literate populations in Asia and Africa. We’d like to work with research teams to make these optotypes freely available. Please forward this if you work on foreign language optotypes, or can put us in touch with such teams!

    Hello.
    I would like to know if it is possible to order new charts for the app.?
    I am missing these:

    -The cross cylinder chart ( with 18 circular dots)
    -The fixsation disparity chart ( with fusion lock)
    -A vertikal straight line of letters in different sizes.

    Kind regards
    Christine.
