A Sheridan-Gardiner near-vision chart is provided in the instruction manual. The teenager should hold it in a good light at a distance of approximately 10 inches away from the eyes. Please occlude the other eye efficiently without pressure on the eyeball. If the teenager cannot read, ask him/her to draw the letters in the air. Test near vision in all teenagers and then retest only teenagers with glasses/lenses, wearing them.
