On the other side is a tumbling E chart (also with Snellen and LogMAR values) which is particularly useful for small children or those who do not use the Roman alphabet in their first language.

The chart is designed for use at a distance of 3 metres from the patient (which can be estimated through 3 large steps or measured with a tape). The chart can be attached to a notice or magnetic board whilst in use.
