Our 20/20 Vision

The inevitable quip of having 20/20 vision for 2020 has to be made – so here’s our perfect vision for 2020!

Firstly, before we explore our goal for 2020, we’re going to look at what 20/20 vision means.

What is 20/20 vision?

20/20 vision is a measurement of a person’s visual acuity 20 feet away from a test chart (which is American terminology).

Simply put, visual acuity measures how well you can see using the letter chart that your optician likely uses to test your eyes.

Although society associates having 20/20 as perfect vision, it’s possible to have even better visual acuity.

However, more suitable terminology is ‘normal vision’ rather than perfect.

Also, in the UK, 6/6 is the equivalent of 20/20 vision.

‘Perfect vision’ and eye health

Contrary to popular belief, it’s possible to have 20/20 vision and need glasses too!

Furthermore, visual acuity and eye health are not the same things, so it’s possible to have perfect vision and also an eye condition.

Our 2020 vision

Visioncall’s 2020 vision is to continue raising awareness of eye care to help us all see better and live better for longer.

Having a regular sight test is just one step of caring for your eyes.

Ultimately, eye care consists of proactive behaviours that can help maintain your eye health between visits to the optician.
