The newly introduced Cardiff Acuity Test developed at the University of Wales College, Cardiff UK was compared to the standard Snellen Acuity charts and the Teller Acuity cards. Acuity readings were obtained from 100 eyes (50 subjects) at distances of 1 meter and 3 meters. A significant difference was found between the 3 acuity tests with a greater deviation at distance (3 meters) than at near (1 meter). The Teller cards measured the highest (best) acuity level followed by the Cardiff and the Sneilen measuring the lowest (worst) acuity.
