On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the VisualAcuity data set which pertains to Visual Acuity in Left and Right Eyes. The VisualAcuity data set is found in the vcd R package. You can load the VisualAcuity data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("VisualAcuity"). This will load the data into a variable called VisualAcuity. If R says the VisualAcuity data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("vcd") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the VisualAcuity R data set. The size of this file is about 663 bytes.
