Since the 1970’s Precision Vision has built a reputation of producing the most accurate and most durable vision testing tools available. In the 1980’s we printed the first ETDRS cards and produced the standard ETDRS illuminator

It is divided into several sections:
A – Visual acuity
B – Letter chart measurements
C – Near Vision and Reading
D – Contrast Sensitivity
E – Low Vision tests
F – Pediatric tests
