Step 5: After opening the link, you will see a hierarchically structured eye chart on your smartphone, but letters won’t be visible to you.
Now move away from your computer screen. After this, look at the computer screen to see the first letter. To enter that letter, tap on the star available on that particular place in the eye chart visible on your smartphone. After this, you will see the suggested letters. Click on a particular letter.
