The purpose of this lesson is to teach students about ophthalmology, optometry, and optician careers, including job description, schooling, and salary. The activity will allow students to test their own eyes.
Power Point Snellen Charts (the one page Snellen charts can be printed on 8½ x 11 paper and will be accurate) Near Vision Test (it is page five of the attached PDF) Documentation Paper
Please view all attachments and familiarize yourself with the information.
Snellen charts attached that are 1 page will be accurate if printed on 8½ x 11 paper. The Near Vision test can be found on page 5 of the pdf attachment titled: block_letter_eye_chart. The first 4 pages of this attachment is a large size Snellen chart you can make on 11x17 paper if you wish.
Students should stand 20 feet away from Snellen charts. When they cover their eyes, have them do it very lightly and not push on their eyeball that they are covering (otherwise they see spots when they are trying to read with that eye!)
