The validity of Titmus Vision testing results

Mil Med. 1990 Sep;155(9):396-400.


A comparison was made between results obtained through the Titmus Vision Tester and those obtained through more common open field optometric procedures. Specific tests performed with the Titmus Vision Tester included near and distance visual acuities, distance lateral and vertical phorias, color discrimination, and stereo acuity. Results were also obtained using Snellen near and distance charts for visual acuities, Maddox rod for vertical and lateral phorias at distance (neutralized with prism), Ishihara plates for color discrimination, and Stereofly Wirt Dot for stereo acuity. The purpose was to determine whether results obtained by the Titmus Vision Tester are significantly different from those obtained by performing the above specific tests on the patient population.
