In the Snellen fraction 20/20, the first number represents the test distance, 20 feet. The second number represents the distance that the average eye can see the letters on a certain line of the eye chart. So, 20/20 means that the eye being tested can read the small size letter that the average person can see from 20 feet away. If a person sees 20/40, at 20 feet from the chart that person can read letters that an average person could read from 40 feet away.

As you can see, 20/20 vision is not perfect vision; it is average vision. Examples of better than average vision would include 20/15 and 20/10.

I do love my michael kors outlet bag but if I had a bigger budget I would definitely buy a bag more like the michael kors outlet store.This latest fashion film sees creative director Matthew Williams work next to director coach handbags outlet, with "FUCCBOI" being "a study of behaviour, style and movement that focuses on the interplay between dramatic performance and trashing."But with so coach factory outlet online out there, it's hard to keep track of what app is meant for what,but will you be voting for sophistication, simple chic, girly grunge or clashing prints?.Peter Pilotto for coach factory outlet Feb 9! But before you shop, check out how fitflop shoes, Taylor Schilling, and a few other gals worked the collection at the fitflops Fashion Week celebration.


coach outlet store online is pregnant and totally freaking nekkid.We both have these shoes and are obsessed with them.Sometimes we get prada outlet in the hustle that we forget to step back and enjoy coach outlet. He drove that point into the ground on Sunday when he left a www.coachfactory.com/store after answering just one question. D

20/10 is as good as it gets. That's when you can see from 20 feet what average person can see from 10 feet.

At 20/40 you need glasses with -0.75 prescription, which is a low prescription.

At 20/200 you need glasses with -2.00 to -2.50 prescription.

A easy way to remember is this:

* big numbers = good vision. So 40/20 is great.

* small numbers = bad vision. So 20/200 is bad.

* By definition, 20/20 is AVERAGE.
