How do LEA Symbols® differ from traditional charts for assessing visual acuity of young children?

LEA Symbols® provide a more consistent and reliable way to measure children's visual acuity. Young children are familiar with the LEA Symbols (circle, square, house, apple) and are less likely to guess incorrectly using these charts. Children often get anxious and confused when they are pressured to respond without knowing the correct answer. LEA Symbols® charts come complete with symbol flash cards and a response key to ensure the child is comfortable with the symbols being used before vision testing even begins.
