Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the purpose of conducting trial-frame refraction?

    • A.

      To compare the results with results of a phoropter

    • B.

      To achieve the best vision correction in preparation for VA testing

    • C.

      To test the knowledge of the VA Examiner

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. To achieve the best vision correction in preparation for VA testing
    Explanation
    The purpose of conducting trial-frame refraction is to achieve the best vision correction in preparation for VA testing. This involves determining the appropriate prescription for the patient by using different lenses and adjustments. By conducting trial-frame refraction, the examiner can fine-tune the prescription and ensure that the patient's vision is optimized before proceeding with visual acuity testing.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    What is the minimum number of letters that must be correctly answered by a subject on any line of the VA chart in order to continue testing on the next Row?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      4

    Correct Answer
    D. 4
    Explanation
    In order to continue testing on the next row of the VA chart, the subject must correctly answer a minimum of 4 letters on any line. This means that they need to accurately identify at least 4 letters in order for the testing to progress to the next row.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    If the subject reads 3 or fewer letters on line 1 at 4 Meters, 

    • A.

      The VAE should test the subject for count fingers

    • B.

      The VAE should stop the test at 4M and move the subject to 1M

    • C.

      The VAE should attempt to test the patient on line 2 at 4M

    • D.

      The VAE should stop testing and write N/A for 1M testing

    Correct Answer
    B. The VAE should stop the test at 4M and move the subject to 1M
    Explanation
    The correct answer suggests that if the subject reads 3 or fewer letters on line 1 at 4 meters, the VAE should stop the test at 4M and move the subject to 1M. This implies that the subject's visual acuity is too low to continue testing at 4 meters, so they need to be moved closer to the chart in order to accurately assess their vision.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Low Vision section should be crossed out (draw diagonal line through), initial and date under which of the following conditions:

    • A.

      The subject has received a Visual Acuity Score greater than ‘0’

    • B.

      The subject has been able to read letters at the 4M and/or the 1M distance

    • C.

      If the subject has a Snellen Equivalent score of 20/200

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because crossing out the Low Vision section and initialing and dating it is required under all three conditions mentioned in the options. If the subject has received a Visual Acuity Score greater than '0', it means their vision is not considered low and the section should be crossed out. Similarly, if the subject has been able to read letters at the 4M and/or 1M distance, their vision is not low and the section should be crossed out. Lastly, if the subject has a Snellen Equivalent score of 20/200, it indicates low vision and the section should be crossed out. Therefore, all three conditions require crossing out the Low Vision section.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Low Vision section should only be completed if which of the following conditions are met:

    • A.

      The subject has received a Visual Acuity Score of ‘0’

    • B.

      The subject has not been able to read any letters at 4M and at 1M

    • C.

      The subject has a Snellen Equivalent of 20/NA

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The Low Vision section should only be completed if all of the following conditions are met: the subject has received a Visual Acuity Score of ‘0’, the subject has not been able to read any letters at 4M and at 1M, and the subject has a Snellen Equivalent of 20/NA.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What type of lens is added to accommodate testing at 1 meter?

    • A.

      +/- 0.25 sphere

    • B.

      -0.37 lens

    • C.

      +0.75 sphere

    • D.

      Jackson Cross cylinder lens

    Correct Answer
    C. +0.75 sphere
    Explanation
    A +0.75 sphere lens is added to accommodate testing at 1 meter. This type of lens is used to correct for hyperopia or farsightedness. By adding this lens, it helps to focus the light properly on the retina for clear vision at the specific distance of 1 meter.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following statements is incorrect:

    • A.

      If the subject reads 3 or fewer letters on Line 1 at 4M, move the subject to 1M for both refraction and testing

    • B.

      The Genentech VA stopping rule is once 3 or fewer letters are read correctly on any row, STOP testing on that row.

    • C.

      The Snellen Equivalent is the most difficult line read with a score of 4 or 5

    • D.

      The Genentech VA stopping rule is to continue testing the subject until he/she gets a score of ‘0’

    Correct Answer
    D. The Genentech VA stopping rule is to continue testing the subject until he/she gets a score of ‘0’
    Explanation
    The given answer is correct because it states that the Genentech VA stopping rule is to continue testing the subject until he/she gets a score of '0'. However, this statement is incorrect because the Genentech VA stopping rule is actually to stop testing on a row once 3 or fewer letters are read correctly on that row.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The best method of occluding the eye that is not being tested employs the use of the following:

    • A.

      Occluding lens

    • B.

      Tissue

    • C.

      Tissue and tape

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The best method of occluding the eye that is not being tested is to use all of the above options, which include an occluding lens, tissue, and tissue with tape. Using an occluding lens ensures that no light enters the eye, while using tissue or tissue with tape provides a physical barrier to block the vision. Using all of these options together ensures maximum occlusion and prevents any interference during the eye test.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Sections of the Worksheet that are not completed (i.e. Low Vision sections) must be: 

    • A.

      Lined through and initialed/dated.

    • B.

      Left Blank

    • C.

      Zeros entered on each line

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Lined through and initialed/dated.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Lined through and initialed/dated." This means that any sections of the worksheet that are not completed, specifically the Low Vision sections, should be marked by drawing a line through them and then initialing and dating the mark. This indicates that the sections were intentionally left blank and not overlooked or forgotten.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which of the following statements is incorrect?

    • A.

      Low Vision Testing should be conducted on all subjects who have a Snellen Equivalent of 20/500 or worse

    • B.

      Testing should be stopped once the subject reads 3 or fewer letters and a vertical line needs to be drawn through the remaining spaces not tested

    • C.

      The subject is only tested at 1M if 3 or fewer letters are read at the 4M distance

    • D.

      If the subject reads 4 to 5 letters at 4M, continue testing until the subject can only read 3 or less letters on any line

    Correct Answer
    A. Low Vision Testing should be conducted on all subjects who have a Snellen Equivalent of 20/500 or worse
    Explanation
    The statement "Low Vision Testing should be conducted on all subjects who have a Snellen Equivalent of 20/500 or worse" is incorrect because low vision testing should be conducted on all subjects who have a Snellen Equivalent of 20/70 or worse, not 20/500 or worse.
