The near vision test is measuring your ability to read and see objects close up. This test is important if you have hyperopia or presbyopia.

Download the Acrobat file and print it out, using your printer's highest print quality setting.

Hold the chart about 35 cm (14") away and notice how far down the chart you can read. If you have perfect near vision you can read the bottom line from arm length and all the way into approx 15 cm from your eyes.

Making your own Near Vision Test chart use the following font sizes. Chose Arial or Currier fonts. You can also experiment with different colour background to train you ability to read text printed on any background.
