To achieve the E and e-circumflex characters, Mac users type "option-i" and then the upper or the lowercase "e". PC users type "alt-0234" or "alt-0202".
When the upper or lowercase "V" and "W" are followed by the letter "a", you might find that replacing the "a" with the capital "A" will make the text look better. Even though we have made an optical adjustment and added kerning pairs, there appears to be extra space with these character combinations which is pleasingly filled by the sliver to the left of the capital "A".
INTERESTING OVERLAY EFFECTS
You can create some interesting effects by using the Eye Doctor™ fonts in conjunction with the companion family Double Hitter™. The companion family is identical in terms of its kerning and spacing, but has all the slits removed. If you set some text in Double Vision™ and colour it 30% black (for example), you can then place a copy of the text directly on top, and colour it 100% black and change the font to Eye Doctor™. Using this technique you can completely control the contrast of the 'blur" in relation to the body of the characters.
The imperfections in some of the Eye Doctor™ characters (such as uneven curves, rounded or chipped corners, off-axis angles, and slight baseline shifts) ARE all intentional. The objective of the font was not only to create the interesting "double vision" effect, but also to maintain a "done by hand" quality. If we had made the characters too even and consistant, a certain dynamic would have been lost.
A version of Eye Doctor™ which has slits added is called Double Vision™.
FULL CHARACTER SET
Each font in the Eye Doctor™ family has a full character set of 232+ letterforms, with all characters designed in the style of the font.
