Good-Lite's Vision Experts


Lea Hyvärinen, MD

Lea Hyvarinen, MDLea Hyvärinen, MD, PhD, Professor h.c., Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Dortmund, Germany; Senior Lecturer, Developmental Neuropsychology, University of Helsinki, Finland, started to develop her LEA Vision Test System in 1976 in Helsinki and has worked on it with Chris Greening in 17 years. The Test System now contains tests for numerous clinical test situations and vision screening of children and adults with different communication needs.

The original tests on the printed near vision card were: a standard test, a test with wide spacing and a tightly crowded test. There were two tests for distance, a hand-made grating acuity test and for low contrast, photographic tests at the same contrast levels as today. In early 1990s came the LEA Puzzle, first black & white, later colorful; Panel 16 color vision test; LEA GRATINGS; Cone Adaptation Test; Rectangle Game; Mailbox Game; Heidi Expressions Game and the LEA Numbers. The additions of the recent years are LEA Grating Acuity Test, LEA Flicker Wand, the 40M and 60M cards for presentation as a line test or singly and the LEA Low Contrast Grating Acuity Test.

Dr. Hyvärinen's contributions to vision include training courses and lectures on functional vision testing for children with disabilities. The next pages depict the Core Tests and their numerous variants that are still available for numerous screening projects and programs.
