    As far as three meters

    "He was not totally blind. He could see as far as three meters". Is it correct? If yes, then what would be the other way to say this?

    Re: As far as three meters

    Another way is: ​He could see no farther than three metres.

    Unless you are certain that there is only one other way to say something, ask people to suggest another way. You are asking for one or more alternatives.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: As far as three meters

    He could see up to three meters (away).

    His vision was limited to three meters.

    Note the British spelling of "metre​s" as shown in Piscean's earlier post.
