VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron PUTTING YOUR VISION INTO PERSPECTIVE "Visual acuity," which is measured with the use of a Snellen eye chart with the large "E" on top, refers to the sharpness of your vision. If you have 20/20 vision, is your vision perfect? The answer is "no," because visual acuity is measured under ideal conditions and is not predictive of the quality of your vision in all situations. Vision should be viewed as encompassing a wider range of visual abilities and skills, including contrast sensitivity, the ability to track moving objects with smooth and accurate eye movements, color vision, depth perception, focusing speed and accuracy, and other aspects of sight. Therefore, visual acuity should be seen as just one aspect of your ability to see. Comfortable and efficient vision involves more than visual acuity. Routine eye exams can detect vision problems, eye disease, and general health problems before you are aware a problem exists. To schedule an appointment, please call SKOWRON EYE CARE. Our showroom is stocked with the latest and greatest trends in budget and designer eyewear. At Skowron eyecare, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. Normal" vision is 20/20, meaning that the tested individual can see the same line of letters on the Snellen eye chart at 20 feet that a person with normal vision sees at 20 feet.
