Back to School – What is 20/20 vision?

It’s that time of year again, the kids are back at school doing tons of reading and writing. Is your child complaining of headaches or eye strain? Not having the clearest vision possible which could be causing them to lose concentration. Having to strain to see the board can be frustrating. One of the most common questions at the eye doctor is, “What does 20/20 vision mean?”. Here’s your answer…. A person with 20/20 vision can see what an average person can see on an eye chart¬†when they are standing 20 feet away. Therefore, the larger the bottom number, the worse the vision is. So, a person with 20/100 vision can not see well at all. It’s never too early to get your eyes checked!
