legibility

Term referring to the difference in the ease of difficulty with which optotypes can be read. Some letters are easier to recognize (e.g. L, T, U, V, Z and C) than others (e.g. S, G, H, F, R and B). Test charts either mix these letters or use letters of similar difficulty; the latter facilitates standardization of charts.
