After reading last few David's blog entries this "dotted chart" idea came to my mind.
Why not create a chart that resembles the Snellen Chart but instead of solid letters we would have the letters constructed of dots. In my opinion such a chart would force shifting while moving from letter to letter or even while looking at one letter. One would constantly move the attention from one point to the other while looking at the letter which would further more avoid staring at the letter. I am not an expert in Bates, but I believe that this could help a little so, I created such a thing.

What do you think about the idea?
