What 20/20 Vision Means!

20/20 vision and your eyes

The term 20/20 has become synonymous with many things that are perfect, even outside the world of vision.
In the world of vision, 20/20 vision is considered “normal” vision. This means that the patient sees the same line of letters/objects at 20 feet that a normal person sees at 20 feet. Everyone asks what that means. In simple terms it means that a person with normal vision should be able to see a determined size letter at 20 feet distance with clarity. A person with 20/20 vision is able to see letters 1/10th as large as someone with 20/200 vision. 20/200 vision is considered to be legal blindness. Usually a person with this level of vision can be helped to see to a much better level of vision with corrective devices like glasses or contacts…and are able to see STOP sign letters(fortunately).
However, 20/15 vision is better than 20/20. A person with 20/15 vision can see objects at 20 feet that a person with 20/20 vision can only see at 15 feet.
So the question: can I have vision corrected to see better than 20/20? The answer is yes, sometimes an individual is able to be corrected to a better level of vision that 20/20.
