Find the Best Eye Position for Reading
Use the word in the center of the grid as your target.
1. Can you block the word or a part of the word with a blank or dim spot in your field of view?
2. Try to move the blank spot just above the word by looking upwards. Is the word more clear when you do this? You need to pay attention to the word, and not the blank spot.
3. On the same grid, try to move the blank spot:
* just to the left of the word
* just above and to the left of the word
* just below and to the left the word
* just below the word
* just below and to right of the word
* just to the right of the word
* just above and to the right of the word
4. Is the word more clear when you move your blank spot to one of these areas? Remember where you looked to best see the word.
TIP: If you see just as clearly no matter where you place your blank spot, place the blank spot just above the word. This will let you read from left to right, and from the top of the page down in the easiest way.
5. On the next grid, read the words from left to right. Try to see each word as clearly as possible.
6. Read each word on this next grid. Where do you look to see each word the best?
