## What do you call the level of your vision?

20/20 vision is a term used to express normal visual acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet. If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance.

What are the vision levels?

Vision Classifications

• 20/30 to 20/60 is considered mild vision loss, or near-normal vision.
• 20/70 to 20/160 is considered moderate visual impairment, or moderate low vision.
• 20/200 to 20/400 is considered severe visual impairment, or severe low vision.

What eye level is legally blind?

If you’re legally blind, your vision is 20/200 or less in your better eye or your field of vision is less than 20 degrees.

What is the normal acuity of the eye?

These are considered to be normal vision with the 20/20 line being the traditional normal vision line. It is generally felt that the maximum visual acuity of the eye is around 20/15 or 20/16. This means that if you are able to read the bottom line, you are probably a good guesser.

## What should my vision be at the end of an eye test?

Eye charts can be configured in various ways, but generally, if during an eye test you can read the big E at the top but none of the letters lower than that, your vision is considered 20/200. That means you can read at 20 feet a letter that people with “normal” vision can read at 200 feet. So at 20/200, your visual acuity is very poor.

How is the sharpness of your vision measured?

Visual acuity. This, literally, is the sharpness of your vision. Visual acuity is measured by your ability to identify letters or numbers on a standardized eye chart from a specific viewing distance. Visual acuity is tested one eye at a time, with the help of a standardized Snellen eye chart.

Eye charts can be configured in various ways, but generally, if during an eye test you can read the big E at the top but none of the letters lower than that, your vision is considered 20/200. That means you can read at 20 feet a letter that people with “normal” vision can read at 200 feet. So at 20/200, your visual acuity is very poor.
