The chart is intended to be used at a distance of 20 feet (about 6 meters) but can be closer if reading difficulties are presented. The person tested must open one eye at a time. The examiner/the optician randomly select letters on each row and notes the right and wrong answers.
The score per eye is the result of the distance divided by the value of the smallest line read correctly. A visually healthy person can read the 20/20 row.
The result of the score enable to make a decision on whether or not to wear a visual correction device (glasses).
