READING TEST TYPE CARDS
Text: The text used is interesting and in a modern prose form. It is not designed to test reading skill but rather to present an easy and subjective clinical test in accordance with the final recommendation of the Faculty of Ophthalmologists, London. The isolated test words will suit a wide range of patients with different reading abilities - including children.
Test type sizes on one side:
N5, N6, N8, N10, N12, N14, N18, N24, N26, N48
On the reverse side of the card are examples of:-
* A part of a page from The Telephone Book

The card is encapsulated in both a laminated non- reflective and standard clear plastic for card surface protection. Rounded corners and rigid construction. Washable.- use domestic detergent and water to clean.
Alternative Type Location Available:
Traditionally, the small N5 size print has been located at the top of the card. To make the reading test easier through bifocal and progressive lenses the same card has been reprinted with the N% letter sizes printed in reverse order so the small N5 size print at the bottom of the page.
