What is the Pelli-Robson test?

Answer: 

Similar to the Snellen test, the Pelli-Robson test is where the optician asks you to identify the letters on a chart.

Unlike the Snellen test, this uses printed letters of decreasing contrast, with three letters at each contrast level.

It's designed to identify patients with poor sensitivity to contrast.
