Further details: The apps Visual Acuity Charts and Kay iSight Professional require payment either to install or after the initial trial period, making OcularCheck the most accurate app that is free for distance visual acuity testing. Accuracy was measured by comparing optotype size to the clinical standard of an ideal eye chart.
