Classroom Snapshot : Anatomy & Physiology

Students began their semester in Anatomy and Physiology with a lab focusing on visual tests. One of the experiments was to use the Snellen Chart to gauge visual activity. This original eye chart was designed in the 1860’s by the Dutch eye doctor Hermann Snellen. The first line on this chart is a giant letter E. You read the chart from top to bottom, left to right, covering one eye at a time.
