Check the distance

A common question we receive is, How far from the screen should I be? As we've specified in the test, the average distance is about 1 metre from your screen. In reality the distance differ greatly depending on the resolution of your screen, the quality of your screen but also the colour depth. To make the test more accurate we've come up with this smart online test.


  1. Hold up a credit card in front of your screen.
  2. Adjust the bar below, and make the virtual credit card the same size as real credit card
  3. The calculated distance distance will now be displayed in the green box to the left.
  4. When you now take the free eye test, use the calculated distance to the monitor rather than the 1 meter we've specified in the test.

    PS. This is the only time you'll need to use a credit card in our free eye exam online.
