A binocular balancing technique that allows the examiner to check each eye separately while binocular vision is still at play. It is a necessary test, mainly when subjective refraction has been performed under monocular conditions. The test uses a reversed acuity chart containing letters in two vertical columns and a septum on a mirror in the middle of the chart, allowing each eye to view its target. If all the letters are seen equally by both eyes, then it implies binocular balancing.
