Steinbach incorporated four features known to improve visual acuity into their computer-based evaluation method: high contrast; white optotypes (symbols, letters or numbers used in vision testing ) on a black background to reduce intraocular scatter; proportional layout to reduce the effects of crowding; and multiple optotypes to minimize the effects of fixation instability and to maximize the likelihood of optotype detection.
