The Face Part Visual Acuity Chart was developed by Dr. Chris Gross in 1986. The chart is designed to obtain more reliable acuity measurements from children one to four years in age. In this project the Face Part Chart is compared individually to two standard near point cards. The Light House Chart and the Child Recognition Chart were compared to the new chart for accuracy and testability. Although the Face Part Card showed promise, more refinements are needed before it proves to be clinically useful.
