Test for presbyopia

What is your visual acuity at close distances? Take the self-test for an initial assessment.


Download our model and print it out.


Hold the page at a distance of 40 cm in front of your eyes. That corresponds approximately to the usual reading distance.


Read row by row. Take note of the value in front of the last row that you can read clearly without any problems.


The value that you just wrote down describes your visual acuity (visus) for the near range.

Visual acuity 0.8 to 1.0:

Congratulations! These values stand for normal to very good vision. Repeat the test regularly to monitor your visual acuity.

Visual acuity 0.4 to 0.6:

These values are considered to be “low“ and you most likely need glasses. A professional test with your optician, ophthalmologist and optometrist is recommended.

Visual acuity 0.1 to 0.32:

Values in this range are considered to be “visual impairments“. Therefore it is urgent for you to see an optician, ophthalmologist and optometrist,



When your arms are too short for reading: Presbyopia is the most common visual impairment at increasing age.

Vision deteriorates in the near range with increasing age, and books or letters have to be read with your arm extended. The ageing process of the eye is responsible for this and the deteriorating elasticity of the lens that goes along with it.

Progressive glasses are suitable for compensating for presbyopia for smooth, clear vision at all distances. At your workplace, you will benefit from special computer glasses with Ergo® near comfort lenses.
