Near Vision Test

The near chart is a rough assessment on how your eyes perform when viewing near objects at the average reading distance of 16 inches. Perfect 20/20 near vision should just be able to view the letters on the last line. If you are unable to read any of them, chances are you may have a vision defect. This could be attributed to anything from astigmatism, presbyopia, extreme hyperopia or extreme myopia. All of which can be corrected with glasses and contact lenses.
