  116. 154. Snellen’s Chart: test for visual acuity <ul><ul><li>Denominator denotes the distance from which the normal eye can read the chart </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>20/60: the person can see at 20 feet, what a normal person can see at 60 feet. </li></ul></ul>
  117. 155. Weber’s test <ul><li>Test for lateralization and bone conduction </li></ul><ul><li>Tuning fork is placed on top of head </li></ul><ul><li>NORMAL: sound is heard in BOTH ears, localized at the center of the head: WEBER NEGATIVE </li></ul>
  118. 156. Weber’s test <ul><li>Sound is heard BETTER in the affected ear: Bone conductive hearing loss </li></ul><ul><li>Sound is heard only or better on the NORMAL ear: Sensorineural heating loss </li></ul><ul><li>ABNORMAL: WEBER POSITIVE </li></ul>
  119. 157. Rinne’s Test <ul><li>Test for AIR and BONE conduction </li></ul><ul><li>Tuning fork is initially placed on the mastoid process until no vibration is heard </li></ul><ul><li>Tuning fork is now placed in front of the ear until sound disappears </li></ul>
  120. 158. Rinne’s Test <ul><li>Air conduction is LONGER than bone conduction </li></ul><ul><li>Normal is POSITIVE Rinne’s </li></ul>
