Universal remote visual acuity testing

We need your help to validate a new vision test that can be carried out from home!

The Covid-19 pandemic and resulting physical distancing requirements has urgently increased the need for remote vision testing and self-monitoring of vision problems. In this study we will compare how three at-home vision tests compare to tests done in the clinic.  

What's involved?

If you take part, we will ask you to complete three visual acuity tests at home. Each test will take about 10 minutes.
