What is 20 70 vision look like?

A visual acuity measurement of 20/70 means that a person with 20/70 vision who is 20 feet from an eye chart sees what a person with unimpaired (or 20/20) vision can see from 70 feet away.

What power is 20 70 vision?

The ratio measurement of vision describes visual acuity, or the sharpness of vision, at 20 feet from an object. For example, having 20/70 vision means that you must be at 20 feet to see what a person with normal vision can see at 70 feet.

Does 20 70 vision need glasses?

When the vision in the better eye with the best possible glasses correction is: 20/30 to 20/60, this is considered mild vision loss, or near-normal vision. 20/70 to 20/160, this is considered moderate visual impairment, or moderate low vision.

What does a person with 20 100 vision see?

If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. If you have 20/100 vision, it means that you must be as close as 20 feet to see what a person with normal vision can see at 100 feet. Having 20/20 vision does not necessarily mean you have perfect vision.

What does the bottom 40 mean in diopters?

Same distance, roughly. The bottom number, ie: the “40” for example in 20/40, may seem kind of convoluted but makes sense when you wrap your head around it. It represents the label on the smallest line you can read, which is labeled such because a person with “good” vision can read that line from that distance away.

Do you get diopters for your long distance vision?

If you are nearsighted (anything worse than about 20/50 vision), your optometrist will write you a prescription to improve your long distance vision. This describes, in a measure called diopters, the refractive power of your new glasses or contacts. You will get a separate diopter value for each eye – often one eye is slightly…

What do the diopters on your glasses mean?

For glasses prescriptions, the diopters on your prescription such as -5.00 tells you how far your eyes can focus and therefore how much lens power is needed. It’s basically an inverse of the distance to your “edge of blur”.
