Øyvind Krogh – Optometrist at Optiker-K
Øyvind Krogh – Optometrist at Optiker-K: “The typeface, made with Sloan optotypes as the basis of construction, is the most effective letter selection for equal legibility.
To make a typeface that ensures that all patients regardless of visual function, have the best possibility to see my commercial information, was a key goal for my new visual layout.
This again shows the quality and passion I have for my profession, my practices and my patients.”
A Free Font Based on Optical Eye Charts and Optotypes
The LogMAR Acuity Chart
The LogMAR Chart is used by ophtalmologist, optometrists and vision scientist to estimate visual acuity.
The chart consists of 10 letters and was developed at the National Vision Research Institute of Australia.
Optician Sans is based on the same visual principles as the LogMAR chart, adjusted to be used as a fully functional display typeface.
