You see well at working distances.
You can separate things and see text at working distances - when looking at a computer screen for example.
By measuring terminal vision, we learn how well you see at distances typical for work contexts.
Our ophthalmologist Markku explains this indicator:
Visual acuity is ranked with numbers, so that 0 indicates blindness, 0.3 is at the limit of visual impairment, 0.5 is what is required for driving, and 1.0 is fairly good and normal. Young people, and other sharp-sighted persons, may score as high as 2. The higher the number, the better.
Declining terminal vision is usually easy to improve by using distance or multifocal glasses.
Signs of deteriorating terminal vision:
Ocusweep functional vision examination measures the functioning of the visual system with both eyes - just as we use both eyes simultaneously in everyday life. This measurement is not a replacement for an eye health examination, where each eye is tested on its own while the other eye is blindfolded.
