What is the smallest font you can read?

Size 1 ---- A was an ape,
Size 2 ---- Who stole some white tape,
Size 3 ---- And tied up his toes
Size 4 ---- In four beautiful bows.
Size 5 ---- P was a pig, ---- [more in size 5 in my signature]
Size 6 ---- Who was not very big;
Size 7 ---- But his tail was too curly,
Size 8 ---- And that made him surly.
Size 9 ---- W was a whale
Size 10 ---- With a very long tail,
Size 11 ---- Whose movements were frantic
Size 12 ---- Across the Atlantic.

(Poems by Edward Lear)

Maybe you should have asked: "....without glasses"

That would have been bad. Without corrective lenses, I can scarcely make out the big E at the eye doctor's.

With them, I can just make out size 5. Smaller isn't possible, because the pixellation of most monitors can't handle it.

5...but I can read "size 4" on #4 and I think I can see the word beautiful in there.

I can barely make out size 7, but size 9 is comfortable to read without straining my eyes.

I have nearly 20/20 vision, so I know its not my eyes... and the text size is set to 100% on my browser. Maybe its because the resolution of my monitor is set higher? hmm...
