Acuity Pro® does not require a dedicated computer. If you already have a computer in your exam room, you can add Acuity Pro to it. You will need a dual-head video card. This allows you to open a different program on each monitor. For example, your desk/primary monitor can display Electronic Health Record (EHR) software while the second monitor displays Acuity Pro.

For a detailed explanation of how to do this, click on ‘Start’ then ‘Help’ and do a ‘search’ for ‘multiple monitors’. Windows help will explain what you need and how to set it up. If you add a new dual head video card, disable the original single output video card.

The 2010 study “Effect of age using Lea Symbols or HOTV for preschool vision screening” concluded, “most children (>95%) completed both tests, with no statistically significant differences.” Ref: Cyert, L. et al. Effect of age using Lea Symbols or HOTV for preschool vision screening. Optometry and Vision Science 2010 Feb; 87(2): 87-95.

Acuity Pro’s visual acuity chart software requires a computer with Windows 10 or 11; a minimum of 8 GB of RAM; a hard drive with 1.5 GB of available space; one free USB port; a sound card; a video card capable of 1024 x 768 resolution or higher (1920 x 1080 recommended) and a 20″ or larger VESA mount capable monitor with speakers. If you require a video cable longer than 10 feet, purchase the highest quality ‘no signal loss’ cable you can find.

The monitor and computer video ports must be compatible (i.e., if the computer has an HDMI port, the monitor will need an HDMI port). Video port adapters are discouraged, as we have had mixed success with them.
