Do you have a blurry vision? Do you have difficulty in reading or experiencing any other vision problems? If your answer is yes, please check our calculator to test your eyes for myopia or near-sightedness.
Near sightedness is a visual impairment that blocks a healthy vision. Near-sighted people can see the closer objects clearly but objects at the distance would appear blurred. Hence, early detection and treatment are important to restore your eye health. This test is carried out using Snellen or Tumbling E chart. These online charts have been modified to make them convenient for you to use and is not a replacement for the standard test that you take in the hospital environment under the guidance of an eye doctor.
If your child's vision test indicates that the distance visual acuity is less than 20/20, myopia (Near-sightedness) could be developing. Almost one-third of the school children develop myopia where they find it difficult to read the blackboard in their classrooms.
