In a simple sense, your “eyesight” is your ability to see all the things that are around you, but the term “eye vision” is a little different and much broader. Your “eye vision” defines the clearness and the sharpness of your eyesight. The vision is the interaction between the eyesight and the brain which forms all neurological processes in the brain that makes the “sense of vision” possible.
Now let’s have a look at what is 20/20 Vision? and how you can achieve 20/20 Vision for your eyes?
20/20 vision just like 20/40 and 20/60 vision is a Visual Acuity Measurement that can be detected by an ophthalmologist or an eye expert when they measure the visual ability of an eye using different shapes and details of an object at a given distance. This process is also called Vision Clarity Measurement.
20/20 vision is considered to be the "normal visual acuity" that is measured at a distance of 20 feet. If you are unable to see an object farther than 20 feet then it’s possible that you don’t have a 20/20 vision and if you can clearly view an object that is 20 feet away that means you have a 20/20 vision which is totally normal for a human eye.
