Design firm ANTI Hamar has created a typeface based on the traditional eye chart.

It’s called Optical Sans, Fast Company reports.

The standard chart has only 10 letters, so the company had some work on its hands to develop the full alphabet. It released the product as a free font, available here.

According to Fast Company, the effort “began as a rebranding for the Norwegian family optometrist business Optician-K.”
