The Utley test “How Well Can You Read Lips?” was administered to a group of 53 undergraduate college students. The 8 subjects who obtained the highest scores and the 8 who obtained the lowest scores were given complete optometric examinations. Optometric testing indicated the subjects differed primarily along the visual acuity parameter. A significant difference was found in lipreading performance as it related to visual acuity differences. A significant relationship was found between acuity and lipreading performance.
