Optician Sans: A Free Typeface
Meet Optician Sans: A free typeface based on the historical eye charts and optotypes used by opticians world wide - created by @anti_hamar and typographer Fábio Duarte Martins. Design is in our daily lives yet we take it for granted. The eye chart at the optician is seen but overlooked so let's change that!
Dutch ophthalmologist Herman Snellen started the chart with serifs in 1862. Nearly 100 years later, Optician Kay Louise Sloane gave it a sans serif upgrade with a 10-letter uncompleted alphabet - this is the one many of us have spent time staring at through blurred vision. The now-named logMAR chart has been brought into modern day! The Optician Sans typeface, created in 2018, has been fully fleshed out, optimized, and made available to download for free!
