Most eye tests are conducted in an eye doctor's office by an eye doctor or by an ophthalmic assistant. A century or so ago, however, they were usually done by a jeweler in his back room. After all, while it took a lens maker to grind corrective lenses, it took a jeweler to put those lenses into a pair of eyeglass frames that actually fit your face.
Now, thanks to the internet, you can take basic eye tests online, from the comfort of your own home. Keep in mind that these tests are not a medical diagnosis, and it is important that you see your eye care professional on a regular basis.
People who are "color blind" cannot distinguish red from green or blue from yellow. The Ishihara Color Blindness Test is a good indicator of whether you suffer from this common eye disorder.
The Snellen Eye Test is one we are all familiar with. It has been used for years by eye doctors to measure a patient's eye strength (20/20, 20/40, etc). This version has been designed specifically for online use to achieve the most accurate results possible.
