Abstract: 
Abstract-This paper presents a visual acuity measurement system, AQUIR, which provides the functionality to generate customized visual acuity charts quantitatively. Visual chart is the basic measure to evaluate the visual acuity. With low variability, the traditional visual chart is inflexible and repeated. AQUIR system implements a real-time solution and it can customize the visual acuity test book with more flexibility. According to individual differences, education background, races and reading habits are considered during the process. The adjustability of font sizes and word sparsity subdivides the diagnostic result levels. Besides traditional printed text version, the codebook can be displayed on back-illuminated electronic devices. The applying scope is enlarged and it is advantageous to the renewal and transform of the traditional style of the visual acuity measurement system. The dynamic visual acuity test book will facilitate the operating procedures of visual acuity measurement and improve the accuracy of diagnosis. By breaking through traditional technology, the flexibility and accuracy is improved and multi-media production is realized.
